Hi,

I'm not even sure this is worth reporting but here goes.

After I play a multi-player turn, on exiting the game, it crashes with a Windows type program-has-stopped-working-do-you-want-to-report-it type error. If I enter the game, don't play a turn and then exit it's fine, but if I actually play through a turn it crashes every time when I exit.

This is on a reasonably new fairly high spec Lenovo laptop, for which I separately purchased a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate edition. On the original OEM version of Windows 7 Pro the game never crashed, but it always crashes on Ultimate, on the same hardware. As far as I can tell I have the same software installed (anti-virus, firefox, latest OS patches, etc) and a fairly minimal set of software at that -- I do 99% of my work in Linux and only keep a Windows partition aside for the game and one or two other programs -- I don't even have MS Office installed.

So far I haven't had it crash (apart from very occasionally) during a turn or anything like that, just on exiting the game.

Currently running the latest stable 1.06.19 but it seems to have been occurring ever since I upgraded to 1.05 or thereabouts.

I suspect not. :) I'm the only person I've ever heard of springing the extra $$$ for W7U, and I only did it to mess with one obscure encryption feature in non-ASCII languages. You can't buy it pre-loaded with a PC, I've only ever heard of them coming with Pro, not Ultimate.
