have a technical problem that I need your help with please.

Game Version & Patch (incl. publisher): Hearts of Iron Platinum ParadoxEntertainment

OS & build/SP: Windows Xp Sp3

Computer, CPU & speed: AMD 1.1ghz

RAM: 1gb

Free HDD space: 20gb

Video (brand, model, driver, memory): NVidia GeForce 6200 Driver: 256mb

Sound (brand, model, driver): Envy24Family Audio Driver 5.12.0001.3653

DirectX Version: 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)

When the game starts to load it gets to initializing sound and the crashes to the desktop. I have not gotten farther than that. I have tried renaming the AVI folder, playing with no music, checking the setting.cfg file. I have a the latest drivers for my video. I have to check my audio drivers. But I believe they are the latest. Any Suggestions??

Problem Solved!

As it turns out my windows media player was not playing music at all. I found alot of web pages out there with the same proble. What wirked for me was registering the quartz.dll, using regsrv32 in the command prompt. Now this game and my other audio files work! :rofl:
