I have just installed and started Democracy 4, have started the tutorial 3 times. It crashes at about the third prompt, after describing white-policies and blue-information, it highlights orange but then pops up an error message as shown. This error always comes back immediately. I can however play without tutorial without issue.
I have installed on D:/ drive, through Steam, so the game files would be located at D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam Library D\steamapps\common\Democracy 4 rather than the path shown here.
