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,
    Worldvet

    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

Win XP is not powerful enough for games due to the lack of the amount of memory that can be installed.I guess you had the 32bit version and that is the main problems running apps or games with not enough memory..

Although the solution is being posted months after the question is raised, let this help others having the same Dr.Watson issue.
For this, you can ignore the Error Reporting window, or turn off error reporting so it wont dump your windows drive with GBs of unwanted error dump data. If you are good with Registry Editor, follow the steps below:
Open your Registry Editor and browse to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionAeDebug . Create a new string value (REG_SZ) with name 'Auto' and enter its value as 0, so error reporting gets disabled.
