Well, after installing all the patches, World Builder doesn't want to run now.

Error pops up reading, "Failed to Initialize Plat::File::Setup".

I am patched up to 1.7.1

Company of Heroes - Updates

World Builder ran just fine with 1.4.0.

Wahh!, I dun wanna reinstall!

Anybody know of a fix?

Be advised, COH runs just fine.

"what patch do you have? I know patch 1.70 or 1.71 requires that you create a folder called "datapreview" in the main CoH folder, (in the same place as the worldbuilder.exe)."

This came from another thread. It worked for me. World Builder works now.

at patch 1.70, something changed and you needed to add the "datapreview" file, I assume all patches after that need it to. note: nothing ever seems to be put in to the new file, so no idea what it actually does.
