This thread should help people with the more common issues with Vanity Pack 2.0.0 Beta 10. Users are free to add their two cents, because I can't possibly remember all the issues from the past 5 years.


Try these things before anything else:

-Reboot your PC. As any run-of-the-mill IT guy will tell you, rebooting fixes 98% of computer problems. Sometimes rebooting twice can help.

-Turn User Account Control off. VP2 may have trouble when UAC is turned on - the exact opposite of VP 1.5, weirdly enough.

-Run it as an administrator. This applies to both the installer and program. Running without elevation can cause issues.

-Make sure the game is updated. If you're installing off a platform other than Origin or Steam, you will have to manually update your game to 1.1.0.0.

-Make sure you typed in the passwords right. The RAR password is "Paradise" and the installer password is "City". Both case sensitive, and both without quotes.

paul.dll and GL.ini Google Drive


And now on to the FAQ part.

Q: Why won't Vanity Pack download?

A: Try disabling your antivirus or adding an exception. How you do this varies depending on which one you have.


Q: Why does WinRAR keep telling me the archive is corrupt, or the password is invalid?

A: Make sure you're saving the file, not just opening it. It should be between 363 and 408 MB. If it's smaller, try redownloading.


Q: Why does the installer say the password is invalid?

A: It could be corrupt. Redownload. If it keeps saying this, disable your antivirus and use HashMyfiles to ensure the installer isn't corrupt. (MD5 above.)


Q: The green bar is stuck at the beginning of the installer. Why?

A: This is normal. The files from the vanilla game are being copied to another directory. The progress bar will start moving once the new files begin copying from the installer.


Q: Vanity Pack won't start - VanityPack.exe is missing

A: The only thing that can do this is an antivirus. Try disabling yours and reinstalling.


Q: Vanity Pack won't start - other

A: Fraps doesn't play nice. Close Fraps and restart it after starting VP. Special characters in the install or savegame path will kill it too. Having Steam installed on a drive other than VP is bad as well.


Q: BurnoutParadise.exe has stopped working

A: Try renaming d3d9.dll in Vanity Pack\Burnout Paradise to d3d9.bak. If this fixes it you will lose the overlay. There has been one report that rolling back the nvidia graphics driver to 376.33 or before will fix this issue.


Q: Burnout won't start - Application load error 5:0000065434

A: If God shines his light upon you it'll be fixed. Or try RV2.


Q: Burnout won't start - CD/DVD not inserted

A: This can be caused by the absence of paul.dll, and fixed by inserting it into Burnout's directory.


Q: Burnout won't start - EC:5571

A: This is caused by the absence of GL.ini, and fixed by inserting it into Burnout's directory.


Q: Vanity Pack says ERROR: corrupt vehiclelist

A: Try turning off UAC if you haven't already. Also try disabling your antivirus before installing.


Q: Vanity Pack is stuck on initializing/map is moved/cars are grey blobs/island is untextured/island has invisible wall

A: Make sure you're logged into the game. You are required to do so as a piracy prevention measure. (Pirated games can't log in.) Also make sure Vanity Pack is starting (a white window will pop up).

This can also be caused by VP not finding data 52 with the Steam version. Google Drive Note: Do not use this if you're not on the Steam version!


Q: Why are my overlay options are moving really slow?

A: Because your PC just isn't up to the task of running VP. Sorry fellas. Edit: ESET antivirus can also cause this issue.


Q: Overlay hotkeys don't work

A: Try hitting the function (Fn) key on your keyboard if there is one.



I have overlooked some for sure, so please feel free to add Qs and I'll stick them in.

Since I was on the insider version of that build, I would say that I have no issues with it
