    Sorry for the empty reply (Chrome is not working for me this morning).

    I believe you can download it today.

    Go to Page http://play.freeso.net/
    Download FreeSO option is somewhere in the middle.

    Type the first line of the error at least, then we can help.

    so after clicking the FSO Installer utility x86 edition.exe i get a box that is titled FreeSo Complete setup and the message reads FreeSo complete setup has stopped working. "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." and thats all i get

    ok so i tried downloading visual c 2010 but now i'm getting a message that saying that this computer does not meet the requirment to install this software. the following blocking issues must be resolved before you can install microsoft visual c++ 2010 x86 redistributable setup software package.
    then it says please resolve the following "a newer version of microsoft visual c++ 2010 redstributable has been detected on the machine"

    i am running windows 7 on a pretty old laptop

    it looks like i already have this installed along with a 2013 version, does that make any sense?

    yes that makes sense. I don't suppose you don't know if you're on Windows 7 x64 or x86?

    Okay, are you sure you have version GSInstaller-1-5-17b
    And you extracted all the files before you clicked on Official FSO Installer Utility x86 Edition

    right but after you download the zip, you have to extract all files before double clicking on any. were you able to do that? I have your next step if so
