View Full Version : Runtime error with Thief DS

21st Aug 2008, 01:27
Just reinstalled Thief DS and am getting this error message. I've tried reinstalling multiple times.

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error!

Program: C:\Program Files\Thief - Deadly Shadows\System\t3.exe

abnormal program termination


Also, a "loading CD" thing comes up indifinitely after I click OK.

I have a Geforce 7900 GS with Z-tweaked 158.19 drivers.
Running on Windows XP Pro w/ Service Pack 2.

Tried running on one core instead of two, made no difference. Hyperthreading was not an option.

To run T3 with a single processor, you need a program like processwatch. You did not say how you did it, but it is not sufficient to use IMAGECFG. There are two EXEs running with T3: T3main.exe and T3.exe. One of them, T3.exe, cannot be changed using IMGCFG. Go to the Process Manager to change it manually before launching the graphics part of the game and see if that works.
