"WalkingDead101.exe has stopped working" error

posted by Mike on - last edited - Viewed by 15K users

Hi,

We are currently investigating what is causing this to happen for a small percentage of the userbase for The Walking Dead, and we apologize for the inconvenience. There's a few fixes outlined in the technical support FAQ here: http://www.telltalegames.com/forums/showthread.php?t=29368

If those fixes aren't working for you, please reply to this thread and let me know me know what kind of hardware or software security your system is using. I need the following information:

1: Are you using a software firewall? If so, have you allowed access to the game?

2: Do you have anti-virus software? If so, who makes it? Is it up to date? Is it blocking access to our game?

3: Does the game work if you run it while disconnected from the Internet?

I don't need DXDiag information or any other system specific info apart from the information requested above. Please, no discussion of the issue in this thread. It's to gather information only.

Thanks,
Mike

  • Hey Mike-

    Here's my info:

    1: Are you using a software firewall? If so, have you allowed access to the game?

    Yes, but I turned it off for the game along with all other listed suggestions simultaneously, and it still doesn't work.

    2: Do you have anti-virus software? If so, who makes it? Is it up to date? Is it blocking access to our game?

    I'm using Lavasoft's Ad-Aware/Ad-watch Live SW. It is up to date, but I also disabled/exited it before running the program.

    3: Does the game work if you run it while disconnected from the Internet?

    It does not, even in combination with all other listed suggestions.

    Thanks for helping to get to the bottom of this, Mike! We all appreciate it!!! :-)

    Are we totally screwed? :(

  • @Im_The_Foreman
    That's for the Steam version only though, right? Has anyone "fixed" the standalone version using the "disconnect internet" method?

    It's getting a bit ridiculous that we've not had any word or support on this from Telltale. I'm getting rather worried, to be honest. Not very professional or good customer relations at all.
