Runtime Error

What are Runtime Errors?

A runtime error is a software or hardware problem that prevents a program from working correctly. Runtime errors might cause you to lose information in the file you're working on, cause errors in the file (corrupt the file) so you can't work with it, or prevent you from using a feature.

You may see this error when trying to play a game, or when trying to uninstall a game. 

How do you fix it?

By manually deleting the game folder - and then reinstalling a new copy of the game!

  • Click on the Start Menu, open the File Explorer (This varies depending on the Windows OS you have)
  • Select This PC
  • Select the C: Drive (sometimes called the Windows C:)
  • Select the folder “Program Files (x86)” and look for these two folders:
  •                 WildGames
  •                 WildTangent Games
    (These may also be listed  as HPGames, DellGames, ASUSGames etc…).
  • Find the game in either one or both of these folders.
  • Right click and delete the game folder.
  • Empty the recycle bin and restart the computer. (This part is REALLY important)

Once those steps are done you can reinstall the game (if you are wanting to play the game).
