That makes sense - I originally had an error regarding DINPUT8.DLL, but I resolved that.
After this error message I only have the option to press OK, after which the program crashes out with a Windows "Close or Debug" option.
As for why it doesn't work, I have no idea - unless it's something specific to a laptop, e.g. the Synaptic pad?
