There's nothing in there that's referencing the Radeon, it only states that there's an issue with train.exe. Have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling Train Sim to ensure that it's not an issue with the installation itself? Did you upgrade to Win8, or did the system come with Win8 originally?

If you refer to the sticky at titled "PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING", it lists out some information that you can provide that will help people to diagnose the issue.

Hi Kent,

This has already been reported in this thread :

It only affects AMD graphics cards running under Windows 8 (and Win 8.1 Preview).  I have carried out many tests, including re-installs, without success.  For information, the cards I have tested with are HD 5450, HD 6870 and HD 7850 using all drivers marked for Win 8, including the latest beta version, 13.10 betav2.

When train.exe starts, it immediately reports that "train.exe has stopped working".  Nvidia cards work (using their latest drivers) without problem, so it would seem to be that the AMD drivers are looking for some file/s which either don't exist under Win 8, or are in a different location.  The same drivers work OK under Windows 7.

I appreciate that we users of Microsoft Train Simulator are in a relatively small minority, but a large number of us use AMD cards.  Currently, we have the options of changing to an Nvidia card (which can't be good for AMD!) or remaining with Windows 7.

Any help on this matter would be most welcome

Unless user of the game report the issue on the form found at the bottom of driver download it will not get fixed. This is a User Forum which is not the technical support staff. None of us have anything to do with code found in those drivers.

I do know that the last entry says he filled out an entry but you still need to throw your issue report in as well. The more information that users supply the quicker the fix.

I have friends with nvdia cards that have issues with this program as well so it is not just AMD. Be part of the solution.

Hi WMudrockJr,

I already submitted a report earlier this year, as I mentioned in the other thread on this subject.  I have heard nothing to date!  Maybe I should send another report, in case my original got 'lost'?!
