I haven't played this game in a few years and after a recent upgrade I thought I'd play it again (it was a crazy fun game!). Instead, I've found that the game doesn't work at all. When launching the game, it brings up an empty white window for a brief second then crashes with "HKShip.exe has stopped working".

System specs:
  • Win10 build 15025
  • i7-6700k
  • 16GB RAM
  • GTX1080, driver 378.49
  • 3 x 1080 monitors @ 120hz (running on single monitor in windowed mode)


What I've tried:
  • Deleting game and reinstalling
  • Verified integrity of local files
  • Enabled/disabled HD Texture Pack DLC
  • Run HKShip.exe from game folder folder as Administrator
  • Run HKShip.exe in Win7 and XP compatibility modes
  • Setting game properties in NVIDIA control panel for single display
  • Disabled any "advanced" settings (filtering, cache, MFAA, etc) in NVIDIA program settings
  • Confirmed Intel IGPU disabled in BIOS
  • Manually ran D3D11Install_2010.exe and vcredist_x86.exe from redist folder
  • Confirmed DEP set to "essential Windows programs and services only"
  • Disabled Windows 10 XBox Game DVR
  • Disabled NVIDIA GeForce Experience Share game streaming
  • Disabled Touch Keyboard and Handwriting Panel Service
