Can you post the traceback error?
I think is some file permission problem though, like you unzipped the DLC .zip badly or something like that :)

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

Yes is a file permission error, try to uninstall and reinstall the game in another folder and should work :)

The DLC .zip has the game+DLC so you don't need to put it inside the base game. Just unzip it anywhere in your computer and run the .exe inside, will be the game+DLC all in one.

I'm having some other users with this issue: I don't know if is a problem of the latest Ren'Py or some strange system/config setting.
Those who have that problem can try to run the .zipped version in forums here: http://winterwolves.net/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=3610
Just unzip it anywhere on your computer and run the .exe. If this one works, then it's definitely an user permission issue (the current user running the game can't create files in the installation folder).
Of course I'll try to make sure the normal .exe installer version works too!

OK Ren'Py coder replied, by mistake a debug file was left in the library that caused that issue. I'll update the game later today with the fix once is ready :)
