I have recently purchased this game via steam. Whenever attempting to launch the game I see a white box and for a few moments and the game hard crashes. I get the the typical problem that there was a problem with this program.
After a bit of research the only suggestion that support has shared is to revert to radeon video drivers from January of 2012. I was able to properly revert my drivers but this made no difference. Im now running the most recent drivers again. This made no difference. I have attempted to launch the application in compatibility mode (XP sp3) with admin permissions. Again, no dice, continues to crash on startup. Here is the specific error message from eventvwr.msc: (I have verified that ntdll.dll is not corrupt)

My dxdiag will follow. Has anyone been able to look into this problem? Appears to have been around for over a year.
