I have Net Framework 4.0 and Direct X 11, my OS is Win7. Anyone know what might be the issue I start with the fully updated DW with RoS expansion. I get the DW has stopped working message.
Anyone else found what the issue is?

I have had to fight a bit when installing on a new computer.

My advice is:

Answer yes to everything it wants to install (.net, directx and such).

I did a step by step verification that thing ran. Vanilla. Vanilla ROTS (and min my case vanilla legends and finally latest patch).

Do not run manually in admin mode, that seems to throw errors.

If you are going to Legends... make sure you have .net 4.5.

Hi Dan,

Please post a DxDiag and a crash log for us from the folder below your DW save files folder and we'll do our best to help you get the game running.

Regards,

- Erik
