Trial GSB worked fine; Full version crashes on Start.

Loved the trial version of GSB, so I bought the full version (no expansion packs yet).

After installation, it bombed. I noticed that many others have had this problem before me, so I read through all of the suggestions. Nothing seemed to help.

Updated the driver for my video card – that didn’t make any difference.

Lowered screen resolution – no joy there either.


Error message reads:
GSB.exe has stopped working

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.

Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

Debug File reads:

Does anyone have any more ideas for what might get the game to work again?

re-downlaod the game and re-install it. It will then magically be version 1.36, and it should then run fine on your video card.
