    We have bought our son a copy of this game for our son for his birthday.

    It has been loaded on to a laptop and he has started to play the game.

    Upon returning to the game, to continue, we get an error messages after clicking on the icon of:

    Can’t load xml config file `C:/Users/user/Documents/MyGames/FarmingSimulator2017/game.xml`

    The only way he has been able to get back on the game is to delete it from the PC and reload from the disc but he then gets the same issue trying to return to the game.

    please can you assist us with this problem?

    many thanks
