Games cannot be played (2.66a)

When the play button is clicked in the game logic layout, the console produces an error claiming that it cannot find tmp\\0001.png.

This occurs repeatedly on a fresh install of 2.66a (both 64 bit and 32 bit) across two machines. Both are Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

Machine A:
ATI Radeon 5450

Machine B:
Nvidia 260 GTX

A has 8 gb ram and B has 4. Exact model is unknown.

I don't see how this should be posted to blenderartists.org. This is a component that is packaged with the latest release of blender and is not working due to a technical issue of some sort. I am not seeking a special use of blender, nor am I asking something that is skill related.

There is something weird about your setup. That file path looks broken.

It appears that it was simple user error - I had the render settings to Blender Render instead of Blender Game. Changing this value allows the game to be played.
