Neverwinter Nights 2 Toolset Crashes on Vista
Neverwinter Nights 2 had been sitting on my pile of games for the past year, unopened. The seal was still intact. But I finally decided to install it last night.
Being in love with the original Neverwinter Nights, I was afraid that the sequel will disappoint me. But after getting to the Bandit Camp in the campaign, I gotta say it's a lot of fun to play.
But the Bandit Camp was tough. The designer of the campaign purposely set it up so that you'd grab your tail and run from the bandit swarm. But I had a better idea. I thought I'd build the Matrix Loading Module, much like I had done in the original Neverwinter Nights: Matrix Loading Module. I wanted to experiment and see whether the bandit swarm was more powerful than unlimited gold pieces or not.
When I loaded up the NWN2 Toolset, I got the "Neverwinter Nights 2 Toolset has stopped working" error message (see screen shot below). Looking at the problem details, I noticed that it crashed on "System.IO.FileNotFoundException". That's weird.
However, I remember when I installed the game, it had an error message at the end of installation. Yet, the game still worked. Searching around a bit, I found this useful thread: Problem with the Toolset and Vista 32bit .... It recommended that I re-install DirectX from the DVD; just run "DXSETUP.exe" in the "DirectX" directory on the DVD.
After installing the DirectX drivers, NWN2 Toolset loaded without any problems. Now I'm off to build the NWN2 Matrix Loading Module.
yo man this really helps me alot. i have been wanting to create some new weapons to show my friends but it wouldn't work. so i googled it just now and found ur site.

Didn't work for me, I had the same problem. Rather than say it stopped working it just crashes.
WOA, it had huge lag but it suddenly just opened up. Thanks a bunch.
Thank you, I am really looking forward to using the toolset now that it works!
i need help because i don't kno where to find dxsetup can anyone help?
In the original post:
just run "DXSETUP.exe" in the "DirectX" directory on the DVD.
I have done the above but I am using an Asus G60JX with a GeForce GTS 360M 64 bit, Win 7, I have been unable to open the tool set for NWN2. Can anyone please help me??????????
Try running with xp compatibility with visuals off, when it starts do (ctrl,shift,esc) and change number of cores to one.
If none of that helps just another reason why Nvidia sucks ha ha ha ha ha
awesome thnx! now I can finally use the toolset
Thanks a lot this made my toolset work, i hope it can improve my framrate aswell.
