Frequently asked Questions

I just built a new computer and bought Spore with it. I set it all up with a stockpile of creepy and cute details. I’m trying to start it and I’m getting this message: “The iPhone Cron Slash cannot be started correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close all applications. don’t change anything) I’ve been googling all day for a solution to a specific problem but often getting the same answer over and over again for the second time, I don’t know what else I would try and found it so weird that my 4 year old laptop might want to run it, but my promising PC can’t. I am very frustrated just because I love this game and am going to play it, but I need to come to terms with our ideas on how to fix this, so if anyone has anything known about this, please let me know .
