Hello,
the error message says that you're missing one of these two files:

Thanks for the help, I tried the repair tool no luck.....I had to do a complete OS reinstall to resolve issue....it is working properly now....

BISWizard changed the title from "type initializer for <module threw an exception>" to "Type initializer for <module> threw an exception".Sep 1 2016, 9:49 AM

BISWizard changed Resolution from Open to No Bug.
BISWizard changed Operating System Version from home to 10.0.10586.0.

Thank you for lettings us know. Enjoy the game.

Just curious if this is still the only corrective action available: A complete wipe of the HD & re-install the OS???

There isn't much in the way of resolution among the forums, to this problem, even though it does seem rather pervasive!
