Hey buddy, the same thing is happening to me only I have never had it working it was my first time using this. Everything is up to date like you stated and I have tried replacing the video. I have bought this game and can't even get the thing working... Is there any thing else you could suggest to fix this error?


Hi Weeray!

What i have done is to uninstall every codec and reinstall them, uninstalled every microsoft visual c++,
uninstalled graphicdriver, sounddriver, reinstalled everything with newest drivers.
also i uninstalled citycardriving software and deleted all entries in the registry and installed the
software again.

Since this is the only software not working and i dont recieve an report telling me if its directx or graphicdriver or similar im kind of blinded and not sure where to start.

But i have uninstalled/reinstalled every driver needed for this software, even tried with those drivers included in the software that are a bit old when it comes to the codecs, and still no success.

So Reinstalling the Operating system should do it, but since everything else works its a longshot, there is still no guarantee it will work with a fresh install since then u need to install sp1 for win 7 and all upgrades that might be one of the reasons the software not working as it should.

Exact same problem here!!

My pc specs:

Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+ 3.00 GHz
RAM: 6 GB
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bits) + Service Pack 1

I could run version 1.0, but can't run 1.2.

I've uninstalled codeck pack and installed K-lite again.

If you can run the game, please, tell me how you did it.

We will release the first free patch soon. We will fix the problem with codecs and also we will fix the crash in missions. And I think this problem should be solved there too.
Best regards, Eugene,

Have you applied the new patch v1.2.1?

That did the trick for me since it didnt work at all before the patch.

Crashing in menu while loading the scenes and such can be alot of things.

Do you recieve any kind of error or just that is has stopped working?

1.If it just has stopped working uninstall version 1.0 if you have it in the same folder.

2. Uninstall version 1.2 (1.2.1) and reinstall.

3. update drivers: K-Lite (google it and you get the link to the latest version)
DirectX (From Microsoft Homepage)
Graphiccard (Ati.com/nvidia.com depending on manufacturer)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 x86 (Microsoft homepage)

If none of those steps work check so your computer not get overheated due to coolingissues, perhaps a fan or something thats not working optimal.

Please give me more info about your computer as well. OS? 32/64-bit? RAM, CPU, GFX, PSU.
Also check so you got enough available hddspace and such so you got enough for it to run properly

Hope it helps.

Link to K-Lite codec page: www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm
(Basic version should do it, i use the fullversion)

Visual C++ : Use the microsoft update in controlpanel otherwise this link:

www.microsoft.com/download/en/search.aspx?q=Microsoft%20visual%20c%2b%2b

You will need the normal 2008 and the sp1 one as minimum, not sure if 2005
is needed, but via microsoft update you get all the hotfixes as well for
Visual C++ (x86 is the standard one, x64 shouldnt be needed)

DirectX : www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=35

As for your graphicscard its either ATI or NVIDIA and is easy to find on
their homepage.
