Unfortunately even Bill Gates cannot easily explain these errors properly without a debugger and access to your machine. You will find there is a more information button for further diagnosis. This will bring up an even more cryptic set of numbers, most would give up here and download another game. It could be something as simple as an incompatible graphics card. A memory leak. Or the programmer may not have anticipated your setup. If the game is pirated it may have been hacked which can cause instability. It may just need the latest patch. The best way to resolve this is to go to the website related to this game and read the FAQ or look at the forum there to see if someone else has the same problem

Getting access violation code 0X034A092E when having downloaded game and trying to play.

Install the program with a fresh start and see if it has helped. You could also try changing the settings for DirectX by switching between output and input. If your drivers are not the latest Windows Hardware Quality Labs certified drivers, you will need to download the appropriate soundcard for your system. When downloading them, you need to get them from the official site of the soundcard manufacturer. You may also have an issue with the branding of the memory drives, as they are not compatible. You can try third party tracking systems to see where the exact problem is coming from. has a good system to track the point of access violation, and it is completely free to use.

The BEST way to resolve this is to go back to Big Fish Games website and contact their Tech Support people for a fix. Be sure to tell them which version of Windows you have!
You haven't told us which version of Windows you are using. Atlantis Quest (similar to Jewel Quest match-3 game?) is an older game. If you are using Windows 10, you may need to use Windows Compatibility settings. This will make the game "think" it's running on Windows 7 or 8. There's also, I think, an Atlantis Quest game which is a time-management game, and it may also need a compatibility setting in Windows.
My girlfriend has played a lot of different Big Fish games. Some needed compatibility setting or another adjustment. There have been one or two over the years which simply refused to work, no matter what, but that's rare!

Got message access violation at 0x0042DC30 how do i fix it?

Not good. Your disk drive may be getting old and getting ready to crash. Virus attack is also a possibility or It could be something as simple as an incompatible graphics card. A memory leak. Or the programmer may not have anticipated your setup.

try to maintenance or tune up your computer by cleaning the registry then a scandisk/checkdisk and a defragmentation of your harddrive.

If virus problem, it will worsen with time. If you keep getting this error after rebooting, you might consider backing up your files if they are critical to you.

you can also try to fix it by your windows xp bootable disk. by repairing the windows.
