I started Penumbra again after several months hiatus. However, when I start the game now I am getting a CTD with the message:

"the exception Floating point division by zero (0xc000008e) occurred in the application at location 0x004e988f."

Here's what happens"
- I see "loading" and then the opening text
- I see the intro logo movies, then "loading"
- I pick either "New Game" or "Continue Previous"
- "Normal" difficulty
- The background movie plays
- "loading"

I am using an NVIDIA GeForce 9400 GT graphics card

My monitor settings are 1920x1080, but Penumbra resizes it anyway so not sure if this matters.

I am trying to play the game at 800x600 (having tried at higher resolutions to no avail)

I was able to play the game before in this same computer and monitor

I have redownloaded and installed the game.

?? Any ideas?
