After I click 'Launch' from the launcher, I am taken to the "Grinding Gear Games" splash art. From there, it looks like the game will load fine, however, after about 5 seconds, I get the following error:
Title of dialogue box: Exception
Contents of dialogue box: "Art/Textures/Environment/lavacns.mat": Expected version
Here is a picture of what it looks like:
After I click 'OK' once, the same dialogue box comes up two more times before showing a Runtime error.

After I click 'OK', the Path of Exile client freezes and crashes.

I have tried un-installing the game and deleting the contents within the "Grinding Gear Games" folder in an attempt to "freshly" install the game. However, the two times I've re-downloaded the game, nothing changed and I got the same errors. If you need any more information to help me solve this problem, please let me know as I would just love to play this fantastic game already! Thank you! :-)
