Hello,

You turn error reporting off.

You need Administer privileges to do this.

1) Right click My Computer
2) Click on the Advanced Tab
3) At the bottom right of the resulting property sheet click on Error Reporting
4) Select Disable Error Reporting and deselect 'but notify me, etc.'

This is a persistent setting unless you "Reinstall your OS" in that case you will need to do steps 1-4 again.

Restart your system.

You should be able to run the game at any configuration you want. Take a look at the settings in the game to see if it sends you error messages but I bet you've done this already.

As always make sure you are using the latest set of drivers, not Beta, for your Display Adapter.

Regards,
Worldvet

    Thank you for your patience. As I run my own business from a home office Fridays can be and has been a very busy day. Thanks for posting your current CPU and the Game requirements.

    To answer your last question, when it specifies the 2GHz CPU is that the minimum system requirements or the recommended system requirements.

    I'll be online for awhile.

    Regards,

    Hi, and thanks for your patience again, its been a really long day and a full slate tomorrow but bear with me while I give you something to go on below.

    If that is the minimum, most likely the following is happening and why you are getting the error report.

    The game installers today can and do inspect your motherboard for a report on what is and isn't installed in your system. This is called a bios query in programming terms. When it receives information that falls short of the game requirements you get the error report you are getting because your CPU is just under the minimum game requirements. You could, in the long run, look for a used copy of a previous version (if one exists) on Ebay.

    I would bet the manufacture my dollars to their dimes the game would still run on your dual core processor, but the program isn't smart enough to compensate for that CPU design only what the core speed is. Thus, you will not be able to install it.

    Unfortunately, game software is a problem to return but depending on where you purchased it and their policy, they may take it back and at least give you store credit; you could argue and bargin for at least that with a manager who has the power to offer it to you, the clerk at returns won't. Again, they may not at all. It is the problem because of pirating and returning it will be a problem you might be able to hurdle as I just suggested... demand a manager at returns but be polite.

    If you are using a laptop/notebook you're stuck with that CPU. If you have a tower pc or pc you may be able to upgrade your CPU if you want to play the latest game titles in the future or even today for that matter you will need to do so.

    If you have a tower or just a PC let me know. If you have a computer shop near you you trust or another a friend or neighbor who can recommend or even your chamber of commerce can sugges you could have them upgrade yout. We also have a repair shop locater in our home page link where you put in your zip code.

    You may be able to do this yourself too with some guidance from a book like PC Upgrading for Dummies where everything is written in plain English and not geek speak.

    We here, would also guide you in upgrading your CPU yourself, just be aware it is full of black holes and require care and patience as well as guts to do this yourself the first time and a couple of tools.

    Sorry again for the delay and really sorry it took us so long to disappoint you with this news.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Sorry no, you can't trick it out, we've all tried at one time or another.

    Me, I've been waiting for certain game titles to come out and built a new machine myself buy parts one at a time over the last year to have a dual core AMD 5200, etc. etc. ready and waiting.

    Best of luck and let us know if there is anything further we can do for you.

    Regards,
    Worldet

How can i do for to send an error report to Microsoft? and what are the steps to do it.


Whenever something goes wrong, WIndows notifies you and asks if you want to send the error report to Microsoft. Just click on "Send error report". That's all there really is to it. If it was a Windows problem a solution can be found for that error, it will be installed on your computer via Automatic updates.If it was caused by the program that crashed, sometimes there is a solution, but sometimes there isn't (at least not from Microsoft).

As long as you were actually able to click on the Send report button, you've done your part. You'll just have to wait.

Installed hallmark card studio 2011 upon launch keep recieving send error message to microsoft.


The installation must have gone wrong somewhere, Uninstall and install again.
If the program works anyway. Just disable the "Send Error Report" message:

To access the settings for the reporting feature:

  • Click Start.

  • Right-click My Computer, then click Properties.

  • Click the Advanced tab.

  • Click Error Reporting.

To configure the error reporting feature:

  • By default, error reporting is enabled. To disable it, click Disable error reporting. To continue to be notified when errors occur without being prompted to report the errors, click to select the But notify me when critical errors occur check box.

  • Specify whether you want to use error reporting for the Windows operating system, for programs, or for both Windows and programs.

  • To report errors only for selected programs, click Choose Programs, click All programs in this list, and then click the programs that you do not want to include.

  • To add a program that is not listed, click Add, type the name of the program, or click Browse to find the program on your computer.

Error of send and dont send.


Does this happen every time that you do that? If so, try to uninstall the program, then re-install it. It's not unusual to get an error report popup every once in a while, just ignore them, as long as they don't happen all the time. Sometimes they result when trying to do something too fast.
If you want to turn off error reporting go to:
start>settings(classic view)>control panel>system>then click on the "advanced" tab>then click on "error reporting" in the lower right handside of the "system properties" box. Select "disable error reporting", then click ok, apply, then ok again.
If this is a recurring problem, then post back with more details.

When did it first start happening?
Do you have restore points activated? Try restoring your machine to an earlier date to see if it fixes the problem.
