    When I click on "Configure Sim" I get the "doing something" rotating circle for a couple of seconds then nothing.

    When I click "Manage mods" I see "rFactor 2 Mod Manager" "Scanning for rF2 mod files..." for a second but straight away "rFactor 2 Mod Manager has stopped working".

    I uninstalled, deleted the install directory (which hadn't been cleaned completely) and re-installed (including DirectX) into K:\rFactor2 then copied the 4 rfmod files into K:\rFactor2\Packages

    Clicking "Host" or any of the 3 of the big buttons is the same as "Configure Sim".

    Now I am running on my very old Athlon 3200 PC because my current one isn't booting so it doesn't meet the minimum spec and I did find
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\RADAR\HeapLeakDetection\DiagnosedApplications\rFactor.exe LastDetectionTime 1cccdfa8dc572c1. It does have 2G of RAM and runs rF1 quite happily so I was hoping to see rF2 even it was unplayable.

    Have MD5 checksums been provided for these downloads? A search didn't find any matches. That would eliminate one possible source of error.

    Installed OK on another PC, generated an MD5 from that:
