The Walking Dead - NOT RUNNING! PLEASE HELP!

posted by ultimatecraftersean on - last edited - Viewed by 192 users

I recently just bought The Walking Dead on Steam for £20.99! I was so excited to play it. When it finished downloading I then launched it. A error message came up saying something about a WalkingDead101 file, something like that. It didn't launch so I tried again. This time the error message didn't come up, it just didn't launch. Then I decided to uninstall it then install it again. Guess what! I didn't work! please help!

Check out my Youtube video about it:

    Have you tried this from the TWD Support FAQ?

    Help! I'm trying to launch the game and immediately getting a "WalkingDead101.exe has stopped working" error. What do I do?!

    There's a few things you can do to resolve this. First, make sure you meet the minimum requirements for the game. This is important. If you don't meet the minimum requirements, there may be little if anything we will be able to do to troubleshoot your issue.

    Try rebooting your system.

    If you're using Steam, verify the integrity of the game cache. If you're not sure how to do this, the link below will walk you through it.

    Try right-clicking game's executable, which is WalkingDead101.exe, and then click Run As Adminstrator.

    If it's still not working, right-click the game's executable, click Properties, click the Compatibility tab, and then check the options to run in compatibility mode for Windows 98/ME. Also check the option to disable desktop composition.

    I'm launching the game through Steam and nothing is happening.

    Try following the troubleshooting steps outlined for the previous question.
