I found out, that my game is not working on some computers. Grr.
After some tests I finally managed to reproduce it on my own computer and found out, that Löve is shipping without Microsoft.VC80.CRT .
If you look at the love.exe file, you’ll find, that the manifest describing dependencies explicitly lists this file.
So it’s nice from the Löve developers to ship msvcp80.dll and msvcr80.dll, but without the Microsoft.VC80.CRT is kind of pointless, because they won’t be find on computers that don’t have Visual Studio Redistribution Package installed.
I already filed a bug in the Löve bug tracker and added the file to my game. So if you couldn’t start it, you can now try again.
I assume it applies to all games that used Löve – so this is a nice standalone solution, that doesn’t force users to install VS redistributables.
