When I first installed 1.4000 it crashed until I removed the user.ltx file from the "appdata" folder. The game then created a new one on loading and it worked fine. Good Luck!

From Dezowave on Facebook:

The fully repacked DC 1.4002 is out! Don't forget ,you still need Lost Alpha 1.3000 installed. The rest of the patches are now bundled into a single one for easier handling: http://www.moddb.com/…/lost-alpha-developers-cut-v14002-dev…
Since this new installer removed the old user.ltx, you will need to calibrate the hdr and tonemap settings once more. We will write a guide how to, but there is no good setting, thats why we havent included any, since it will look different on each monitor. You will need to open console, and type:
r2_tonemap_lowlum x.x and r2_toneamp_middlegray x.x (any value which is higher than the default ones in case of lowlum, and any value which is lower than the default in case of middlegray) and play with the values until you are satisfied. This needs to be set only once.
Also: make sure the "r2_allow_r1_lights" set to "on" in your new user.ltx after you installed this new patch!

Yup, missing meshes or any other texture, font related crash means the game wasn't installed properly.

Most common issues are:

1. user forgets to install LA 1.3, just installs 1.4002 DC which is not enough to run the whole game
2. user installs LA 1.3, but then installs the 1.4002 DC to a different folder
3. user installs 1.4002 to the same folder, but for some reason he creates another subfolder during the install procedure, which also wrong.
