Hi,

OS: windows 7
I can start revolt manually, but when i create a room and try to launch game, or join a game, it says:

Could not launch revolt

I have no custom tracks or cars.
I did the 1207 patch and -sli thing to make it work. Also comp. mode windows 98.

Any help would be appreciated,

Boomer ;)

EDIT: now it launches, but i get the "Cannot connect to lobby seesion" error. One may delete this thread..

or could be something with a router?

Download and use WolfR4, it fixes many RV bugs and makes possible playing RV from RV House using Vista/Windows 7.

I have the same problem.
I don't have the revolt installation files, i have only a zip file with all revolt in it, i have unpacked it, and it does work if I start it.
(i have installed 1.2 patch to make rv work with Win7)
BUT, RvHouse is saying "could not launch revolt".
So, how can i fix this?!?

I solve my own problem. it's enough to open regedit, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\DirectPlay\Applications\Re-Volt
and here set the correct path of revolt.
you'll also need to start rvh as administrator.
