Welcome to the Forum!

 

I'm afraid I can't help you with the Software Development Kit issue (I suspect that relates to non SB software).

 

Yes you do need to upgrade to 4.1x (4.167 is the current version).

 

There are numerous threads on this already but basically go here: https://www.esimgames.com/?page_id=1530

 

and select Upgrade License from version 4.0

As mentioned, upgrading to version 4.1 isn't free, but possible for as little as $30.-

 

The error message is most commonly seen with outdated drivers. I recommend upgrading the graphics card driver. This is no guarantee that it'll solve the issue, but at least it offers a decent chance.

I think we may share a common time zone - so if you have any dramas applying the upgrade, just send me a PM and we can arrange a convenient time to walk you through it.

If it is that stupid "invalid domain" error...

a. It's known

b. we can't do anything about it

c. at least, as far as we can tell, it's not security relevant

d. it'll go away after a while

e. I totally hate it.

I updated to 4.163 no problem, guess next stage is move on up to 4.167 ; is there an easy way to get all my legacy maps back ? or open each one by one in map or scenario editor ?  sorry for the questions

Impossible to say without knowing what these maps were. If custom maps from someone else: You may need to convert them, or contact the original author. If they were maps coming with previous installations of Steel Beasts: No action necessary,"most likely".

Did you update FROM Version 4.162 directly TO 4.167? Then you should made a intermediate step and install the update to 4.163 first 😉
