posted by IceHunter on - last edited - Viewed by 6.3K users

Hello, guys. I bought TWD and I have a problem. It shows me an error "TheWalkingDead101.exe has stop working" and I tried all fixes such as running as Admin and Windows 95, Windows 98/ME, Windows XP, Vista, 7 compatibility and this game still doesn't work. Looking for any help. :mad:

    It might work if you unplug your gamepad, but there's a chance it will still crash because Intel graphics chips are not recommended and they don't work well with TTG's games.

    I notice that you also have an nvidia chip though, so you have to make sure in your graphics cards settings that it is used by the game.

    Yap, i ve unpluged gamepad and game ve lounched =))
    Lol, what a nice bug-feature, how could it be?

    I should add that i ve played walking dead on the same notebook but with win7 installed and there was no problem at all.

    Also i guess intel chipset used only for windows and etc to optimize energy consumption, Nvidea mx660m is the main video card used for games.

    Thou tnx for your fast respone, it did help me =)

  • I'm allowing myself to join this thread. No need to start two threads about the same issues.

    I have trouble starting walkingdead101.exe, no matter what I try - changes in compatibility, administrator, changing in the game-files themselves, and so on.

    I hope we can find a solution - it's really annoying not to be able to play this game, both economically, but surely not being able to play such a good game (so it is said) as well.

  • Idem.

    Please try unplugging your XBOX 360 controller.

    LOL. It worked, the game started. Thank.
    But somehow it is not very convenient to unplug the gamepad every time.
    Will there update to fix this mistake?

    I don't know, but so far TTG is not supporting Windows 8.
