Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

This FAQ is for the old Windows version of Seterra. There is a newer version of the FAQ (for the website and iOS / Android app) available here:

I would like you to add a new map game!
We are always interested in getting feedback on what new games our users would like to see on the site! Email However, no new games are added to the Windows version, only to the online version and to the apps.

I try to install the Windows version of Seterra, but get the error message “The application failed to initialize properly (0x0000135)”.
You need to install the .NET framework 2.0 to use Seterra. Click here to download the .NET framework 2.0.

How do I reset the highscore in the Windows version?
Version 4.0: Delete the file scores.xml located in the folder C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Seterra
Version 3.0: Delete the file scores.hgh which is located in the folder where Seterra was installed, typically C:\program files\seterra.
iOS / Android app: Uninstall the app and install it again from the App Store / Google Play(this is free, of course, since you have already purchased it!)

Is there a version for Mac?
No, but both version 3.0 and version 4.0 can run under Parallels, a Windows emulator for Mac. Visit for more information. Also, the online version of Seterra works under Mac.

The white menu on the right in the map exercises takes up too much space! What can I do?
In version 4.02 or later, you can choose in the options screen to have the menu on top instead, like in Seterra 3.0. Also, you can press space in a map exercise to make the menu disappear completely.

Can I zoom in or out on the maps in the Windows version?
– You can use the + and – keys or the mouse wheel to zoom in and out of the map
– The arrow keys can be used to pan the map

I’d like to distribute your Windows software on a CD. Would that be OK?

Can I send you a donation?
At the moment, I would much prefer if you would link to this site from your own website or blog, as a way to say thanks! Links are important to me! You can also buy the app, or support the Seterra project on Patreon.
