Have you got the latest version of the visual c++ redistributable installed? It might be worth installing that: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5555

Make sure you have at least version 3.05 for FtM before installing tFH.

Thanks Alcifer, downloaded and added c++ redistributable unfortunatly this did not cure the problem

I Have FTM at 3.05 and UBYY checksum

Maybe you should send an e-mail to paradox explaining your problem, but maybe you must wait for a patch to TFH

Could you be more specific about your problem?

There was apparently a problem with the Gamersgate installer for HOI3, it was fixed by the 30 september 2012, so if you downloaded your installer before that date, I'd redownload everything...

Finally if you haven't done so already, I'd register your games on the Paradox website and get access to the latest beta, which might just fix a lot of your problems...

Hi,
I can't get tfh to work. First it would not start due to some .dll's missing, although they were in the hoi3 directory. I copied them to the windows folder but when i try to start tfh it just gives me an error message hoi3_tfh.ese doesn't work...
