Hello.
I just bought DC WtP - and have played it for some days now withut any problems.
Then, suddenly I cant play it anymore.
First thing I noticed was that my loadgame stopped working.
I get this message from time to time:

System.ArgumentException: Parameteren er ugyldig.

************** JIT-feilsøking **************
Når du skal aktivere JIT-feilsøking (Just In Time), må .config-filen for dette
programmet eller datamaskinen (machine.config) ha
jitDebugging-verdien angitt i delen system.windows.forms.
Programmet må også kompileres med feilsøking
aktivert.

For eksempel:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

Når JIT-feilsøking er aktivert, blir alle ubehandlede unntak
sendt til JIT-feilsøkingen som er registrert på datamaskinen,
i stedet for å bli behandlet av denne dialogboksen.

I am looking into this.

Do you remember making any changes to your PC at all that could have caused this?

best,
Vic

Thank you for your quick answer Vic. I really enjoyed your game and became so dissapointed when it didn't work.
I use v151b.

I had a windows update earlier today yes. But dont really know what that did.
I tried to reinstall the game, and also install the arial fonts (after reading your older post). Nothing works :(

Love your game !
I am having the same problem.
Just bought the game, V=1.04i
played for 3 weeks then got:
EXCEPTION OF TYPE "SYSTEM OUT OF MEMORY EXCEPTION" WAS THROWN.
I upgraded to V=1.51, was able get in, but crashed either during first turn or ending first turn.
I am playing on a VERY high end dedicated gaming machine, Windows 7, and keep it well protected from the internet.
I get the same error:

I think Vic came up with the reason, and a stopgap solution here: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3277904

Yes ernie is right. Follow the link for the fix and if you have time let me know if you have Windows7 64bit or 32bit. I am really starting to wonder if its only 64bit Windows7 thats affected.

Best,
Vic

I uninstalled the Windows update as suggested in the link.
The game now works.
I use Windows 7 64 bit.
Thanks
