That's not a lot of information to go on. Have you tried redownloading it?

I just grabbed .21 and it loads ok for me.

How and where do you have the files setup/located?

Maybe completely remove the files and try extracting a fresh copy of the files in a folder of its own?

Did you extract the DLLs from the DLE-XP archive, too?

Sadly, even if I delete the .dlls, it still works fine - presumably because I have Visual Studio installed...

Shouldnt DLE-XP go in your Descent directory?

I have it sitting in my data folder with no errors

It doesn't matter what folder it sits in.

I have it in its own folder (DLE-XP).

Does the crash provide you with any other information at all? It's unfortunately very difficult to diagnose the problem as-is, considering it is probably not related to DLLs but (more likely) to some peculiarity with your computer...

I get nothing. It tells me that "DLE-XP has encountered a problem and needs to close." I've tried debugging, sending an error report, and none of that works.
