Hello all,

I had a problem with the demo and also the game itself: After playing the intro video the game crashed to the desktop without any hint. I tried two days to get the game running by uninstalling tools and drivers but it didn't help. Then I had the idea which solved the problem:

I disabled the Data Execution Prevention (DEP) for the game exe and after that the game worked! It seems like a bug in the game access a memory area where it shouldn't.

Here is a guide how to configure the DEP: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/prodtech/windowsxp/depcnfxp.mspx

Best Regards,

Yes DEP can be a pain sometimes, but its also a necessary evil sometimes to stop people from remotely running executables on your machine :|
