There is a file dialog box asking for the save game name. The game accepts the

in the error dialog box says:
'Save file extension must be ".sav" - can't use "C:\Program

See the incorrect file extension? Thus the game fails to load and quits.

This is a regression, caused by

The reverted patch fixed the issue.

The original demo for Hardwar doesn't have the option to save the game, but you
can reproduce the problem after installing the 2.04 patch over the demo. Please
follow the given instructions carefully (it's gonna be a little tricky doing

1. Launch harddemo1.exe (download link located in the URL field) which extracts
the content of the installer. The default location for the installer will be
2. Launch the installer with Setup.exe.
3. Download, unpack and install the 2.04 patch, available here:
4. Start the demo with Hardman.exe. In the launcher go to the Controls tab and
change the flight controls from keyboard to mouse, then change it back to
5. Go to the Display tab, select Direct3D Primary Display and choose a valid
screen resolution.
6. Go back to the Game tab and click on the <Launch...> button.
7. In the first dialog click on <Ok>. A 'save file as...' dialog appears with
the name Untitled, click on the <Save> button. The game begins to load but soon
it is interrupted with an error message.

The only relevant line in the terminal is
>fixme:commdlg:GetFileName95 Flags 0x00008000 not yet implemented
But this line was present before the regression too.
Please let me know if you need a log with debug channels enabled.
