I am finally getting around to play Diaspora and I keep running into this error

Talks about it very briefly and mostly just sounds like a shrug, But that thread is 6 years old.. I am hoping there is a proper workaround to fix this by now?
I installed Knossos about 6 months ago wanting to play Diaspora, and this happened then... so I gave up and on a whim tried to launch the game a couple of months ago and it just worked with no explanation.
I recently re-installed Windows, and now it doesn't work again.
the thread says "google stuff and tell us if it works" ... well nothing google tells me works... Either its a problem between 32 and 64 bit windows, or its a C++ Redistributable issue, or its a Direct X runtime issue.... Nothing has fixed it.
Surely by now somebody has a solution? That would be really great. This doesn't happen with any other game I try to launch from Knossos, only Diaspora.
