An update might not solve the problem. It could be that you have a dual-core processor. Some of the older games will only run with a single processor active. Here is how to disable the second processor core:
Open the start menu, click on Run,type in msconfig and click on OK

In the System Configuration window click on the start sub menu and the on Advanced Options button.

In the second window that appear, you should be provide with an option for enabling and disabling the number of processors you want to use. You need to select "1" for the NUMPROC box.

Validate your entry by clicking on OK.

Restart your PC and it should be fine.

When you are through playing Primal Prey you can follow the same procedure but select "normal startup" and restart your computer.

Hope this solves the problem.

    Ok, my game was doing the same tell i switched my computer to use one processor and set the game up to run on windows98/me instead of my vista. Game worked beautifully for long time until I did my very first trophy hunt mission... soon as I got back through the time portal with a successful hunt the game crashes and then crashes again every time I try to open it.... I made sure I have latest video card drivers installed and I have the latest DirectX installed as well... not sure what else there is for me to try. If you or anyone else has an idea please feel free to share! Thought about uninstalling and then reinstalling but will avoid that if possible since I just went though the trouble of unlocking/buying all the items and weapons. Took forever too since I lost a few from a few deaths.... fing T-Rex....

if you desperately want to play nancy drews that have that problem, there is a way but this way youl have no sound but the game will still play.
Go into the directory where you installed the game and then o into the game.ini file. it should open in a notepad.
go to sound system is active=1.
change the 1 into a 0. then enjoy. the game may have no sound but its still the game ayyy
nd dont try and change the volume or else the game shut down.
