I bought this game from Amazon back in March of 2010. I couldn't get it to work back then so in my frustration I quickly uninstalled it and put it back on the shelf to forget it. Coming across it again recently, I tried to install the game again.
Both times, I downloaded the this patch, unzipped it and and pasted the zipped files over the old copies in the install directory. The game still crashes to the desktop after the introductory video sequence. However, with the patch, it sports an additional twist. Up pops an error window with a header that states "PCOWS.exe - Common Language Runtime Debugging Service"
Application has generated as exception that could not be handled.
Process id-0x41c(1052), Thread id=ox1c4(452)
What should I try next? I have an old computer, circa April 2006, running XP but it does have 256MB of video memory, all be it an integrated Raedon X600 256MP Hypermemory.
I am really frustrated with this game, please help me before I end up smashing the CD with a sledge hammer. 20+ bucks is not something to sneeze at or burn on a bad game.
