Well you should find Gamemanager.dll in the C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\railworks\plugins folder.

Are you running the game as administrator?

On photobucket, it is the IMG option. They will go in here.

It appears that this is related to directx. You need to install the latest directx redistributable from microsoft

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/deta ... 93d210f616

You will need to unpack that file into a folder and then run the dxsetup.exe in that folder.

Or you can go into the subfolders in steam and install DX directly from there, there is an installer for .net in there too.

I don't believe that it is the latest or a full install. The full download is 92MB whereas the version in the install folder is only 36MB
