Reformatted hard drive, reinstalled windows 7 and P3D but now have problem running P3D.



P3D installed on new SSD.



Installed P3d okay but when running as admin I receive the following error:



"Prepar 3D was unable to load some program files and will now exit. Please reinstall Prepar3D to restore or repair the program installation."



Tried uninstalling, reinstalling repairing reformatting drive but nothing helps.



Any advice?



Thanks
