I'm running windows 7 x64, and season one of TWD is working perfectly fine but sometime in January I started noticing Season 2 was generating crash logs under Event Viewer and Reliability History. When I exit a game, an error window doesn't pop up saying the game has crashed or anything, it exits perfectly fine. But what I have noticed is that the error log seems to be generated right before Steam sync's the game after I've exited, so it could be related to the Steam client.
I've run through the basic troubleshooting.
I verified the games integrity on Steam.. - no issues reported.. nothing was downloaded.. but crash remained...
I disconnected all of my USB devices - it didn't help
I updated to the latest Nvidia drivers - it didn't help and the latest NVidia drivers cause IE 11 to crash at times, so I highly recommend not using them, at least with the 450 GTS.
I went into C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\The Walking Dead Season Two_CommonRedist\DirectX and ran DXsetup, then after it was finished I re-started. - It didn't solve the issue either.
I ran the game in Windows 98/ME compatibility mode as a telltale tech asked me to - didn't help
I ran Steam in admin mode - no luck..
I ran the game at 1280x768 and disabled full screen mode - it didn't help..
I disabled and disconnected my Logitech USB headset - it didn't help
I disabled my onboard realtek audio - no such luck
I excluded every game I have on Steam in Nod32, my AV program - issue remained...
I ran CCleaner and cleaned my registry and also ran the cleaner getting rid of temporary files and flushing the dns - it didn't help...
I uninstalled the game, deleted all my saves.. re-installed the game and started over, the issue seemed to be fixed at first but then around the time Carver invaded the Ski lodge, the problem came back again. I then ran all of the steps above again on the fresh installation of the game - no such luck.
I disabled UAC - didn't help...
I ran the TWD support tool and here's the log/zip it created.
As I said earlier, it doesn't pop up an error window when it happens and I wouldn't have even known it was happening had I not checked the Event Viewer. But I check the Event Viewer and Reliability History daily to make sure everything is running right.
