I just bought and installed RoP Gold from Matrix Games today, and was dismayed to find that it will not run after seemingly installing properly. After a short load time I receive this error message "The Application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000005)". This happens every time I attempt to start it. Interestingly, the "PLAY" button on the autorun screen doesn't seem to do anything and I only get this error attempting to run the game's .exe from the folder itself. Not sure if that's relevant. Google tells me I must be the only person in the world having this specific issue with RoP.
I should add that I've completely uninstalled it (I even removed every reference to it from my registry) and also tried installing it to a non-default folder in my C: drive, as is recommended all the time for RoP.
I can't fathom what else could be wrong. I've rebooted several times, attempted to run (and even install it) as an administrator, tried compatibility modes etc all to no avail.
I'm running Win7X64.
Here's my DxDiag report. I have no clue what the problem is but I'm pretty frustrated. While I know this error is often associated with RAM problems, I doubt that's the issue because I've had 0 problems running any other software as recently as just now, including games.
