Hi, I run MSTS for years on XP and W7 without problems but can't on W8.
My system configuration is:
CPU: Intel i7 920
RAM: 6,00 GB
Graphic Card : ATI Radeon HD 5850
Catalyst: 12.11 (no difference with 12.10 and W8 OEM)
OS: W8 Pro 64 with Media Center 6.2.9200 (the game run great on W7 Ultimate 64)
Faulting application name: train.exe, version: 18.104.22.1682, timestamp: 0x3c1625d7
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x003062cb
Faulting process ID: 0x1704
I do some research on internet and seems to be that the game run without problem on W8-32 & 64 bit machines with Nvidia cards but crash at start with ATI & MSI cards.
Starting the game in compatibility and administrator mode don't help.
