Prime Minister Infinity – Canada Version Information

You can tell you have the most recent version by the version number on your start screen. You can request a new update download from here.

Updates are comprehensive. So, if you download the latest update, you get the changes included in all previous updates as well.

Known Windows problems:

We are continuing to find and fix any bugs.

  • If the abbreviations on the main map are out of alignment with the map image, Windows is probably resizing aspects of the game automatically. If you right-click on your Desktop and select Display settings, it should have a ‘Change the size of’ setting. If it isn’t set to 100%, try setting it to 100% and run the game again.
  • Norton products might have problems with the Prime Minister Infinity – Canada install file. If you use a Norton product and are having a problem, please contact us.
  • If you try to install an update and it is interrupted with an ‘Access Denied’ message to replace certain files, 1. Shut down Prime Minister Infinity before trying to update. 2. Run the install file by right-clicking and selecting ‘Run as administrator’.
  • You may have to run the game by right-clicking and selecting ‘Run as administrator’.
  • If you receive the message “Cannot create texture for ‘TCanvasD2D”, right-click the shortcut icon you use to run the game (say, on your desktop), click ‘Properties’, then click ‘Compatibility’, then select ‘Disable visual themes’, ‘Disable desktop composition’, and ‘Disable display scaling on high DPI settings’. If that does not fix the error, make sure you have the latest updates relevant to Direct X (for Vista, the second Service Pack and the Platform Update, for Windows 7 the Service Pack 1).
  • In xp, if you run the game and receive the message “Cannot create WIC Imaging Factory object for ‘TCustomBitmapCodecWIC’”, make sure xp has Service Pack 3 installed.

Known Mac problems:

  • Mac functionality to close a window instead of quit an application from the main window.
  • Sounds are not complete.
  • Images have pixelation on Retina displays.
