Victoria II: Heart of Darkness Expansion

Victoria 2 heart of darkness, missing .dll and other problems

So, I downloaded and installed Victoria 2, and both expansions - launched it, and it says it's missing the tbb.dll, any help?

might wanna add that the vcredist x86 doesnt want to install properly either.

When you download the game file, have you turn off firewall and antivirus temporary until download process done ?
Since you said that you have both expansion, those should be A House Divided and Heart of Darkness, Are you installing the A House Divided first and then Heart of Darkness ?
Because that is the order way

Yes I am installing it in that order, not turning off firewall and antivirus, but i've never had a problem with that in the past, might be worth giving a try though

The tbb.dll is part of A House Divided, so you might try downloading just that agian without firewall and antivirus (should you not be blessed with a good internet connection so it actually takes time to donwload stuff)

turns out it's part of the direct x packages. Fixed it by installing the direct x thingie that comes with the game.
So - tip to others: Install direct X ; ) I usually don't, since my is up to date fairly well.. oh well - reinstall with direct x fixed the issue!

Ok, sorry for the misinformation. Could have sworn it was part of AHD.
