Fixed Walking Dead Launch Problem on WIN7

posted by LTCKOHL on - last edited - Viewed by 782 users

I got my latest version of Walking Dead running (Steam Games Weekend Sale) by going to the executable program (Walkingdead101.exe), right click to load options and use Troubleshoot Compatibility, then select Troubleshoot Program, then select Program Worked Under Earlier Versions, then select the option for Windows Vista Service Pack 2, and execute. The program loaded fine and ran well. I'm running Windows 7 64 bit with a Radeon HD7850 video card and AMD 4 core processor on an ASUS M5A88-M motherboard with 8 GB ram. Hope this helps.

    Congratulations.
    I am surprised, because vista compatibility mode often is actually the cause of crashes in the steam version.
    Many users had their Steam set to Vista compatibility mode, without even knowing, so there is probably some bug that sets that automatically sometimes.
    I suggest you check the properties of the Steam.exe and your Steam icons, and look if they are set to compatibility mode (it might even be grayed out, but checked).
