Depending on your install path:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion\ConvertXSI

For Rebellion, all the official tools are now kept in the install folder.

Heya, thanks for the reply WOE (edit: and Goa! ). The problem I'm getting with that one is a system error. Forewarning, I'm using Windows 8 if that matters at all.

It says that it cant start because MSVCR71.dll is missing from my computer and that reinstalling the program may fix the problem, but unfortunately it doesn't. I guess its just that file i need. In the ConvertXSI folder i already have "msvcr80.dll" but 71 is missing.

Or perhaps its a w8 issue or maybe im just doing something wrong running it directly from "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion\ConvertXSI"

Must be a win8 thing then, because I only need the three .dlls that are in the ConvertXSI folders by default on Windows 7.

I can confirm my ConvertXSI folder has the following dll files:

  • msvcr80.dll
  • XSIFtk.dll
  • XSIFtkd.dll

I'm on Windows 7.

Hmm that's a shame, Ive downloaded MSVCR71.dll and placed it in the 3 locations i was told to, but it seems to still be broken (though now i don't get the popup error and instead the dos prompt just closes right after it starts).

 

Does this work for anyone else on windows 8?

ConvertXSI is a command line utility. You have to navigate to it in command prompt and give it the arguments it wants directly, or make a .bat file to do so. So it seems like you fixed the problem as that is what happens when anyone just double clicks on it.

Tanks Woe
Just incase anyone else has this issue (missing msvcr71.dll)

 

1. Download this: http://download.dll-files.com/ca2f560921b7b8be1cf555a5a18d54c3/msvcr71.zip?0XMmSDXMjS

2. Unzip and place contents at these locations (i put it in all the places i saw people mention through various topics online, im not sure which did the trick but you can do a process of elimination if you desire )

- C:\Windows\SysWOW64 (only if your on 64bit)

- C:\Windows\System32

- C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion

- C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion\ConvertXSI

3. Restart computer

4. Praise the forumites here for the help & super swift response times!!

I notice this form is from about a year ago, but in case anybody looks.

i'm using windows 8.1 and i get the same error involving msvcr71.dll. I have extracted it to all the destinations you have specified. Tried Compatibility settings. The error even happens when i use cmd
