I'm getting a strange bug when I try to start up JA2 1.13. I run JA2.exe, the screen goes black for a moment, and then returns to desktop with the following error message:

File	: sgp.cpp
Line	: 735
Location : InitializeStandardGamingPlatforum
	Initializing Virtual File System failed


I'm running Windows 7 Professional Edition 64 bit. What am I doing wrong?

Also, it is quite possible you've messed up your ja2.ini
Reextract it from your 1.13 archive and replace your current one.

I moved it to my documents and that didn't work. Where else should I stick it?

The ja2.ini in my 1.13 archive is completely blank. What should it read?

Move the entire folder to a non-system folder. UAC in Vista/Win7 may cause some problems, so a location like c:\Games\JA2 is preferable.
The following is from a 4xxx release, but if your JA2.ini in the 1.13 archive is empty, I'd suggest redownloading.
