Q: How to fix " game.exe has stopped working" problem?

I bought a desktop with windows 7 operating system. Many games are not working. It's showing " .exe has stopped working" . Two of my games ( GTA vice city and cricket revolution) which were working in my old windows xp comp have also stopped working and are showing the same error. How to fix it?


Hi Shashank,

 

I would suggest you to check if the game is compatible with Windows 7.

If it is compatible and still shows the error message, let us check in a clean boot and try installing the game and check if it helps, a clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

 

Perform Clean Boot.

 

To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows 7 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot."

Important: Reset the computer to start as usual.

 

Note: After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to boot to normal startup.

 

a) Press the ‘Windows + R’ key on the keyboard.

b) In the ‘Run’ windows type ’MSCONFIG’ and click ‘Ok’.

c) On the ‘General’ tab, click the ‘Normal Startup’ option, and then click ‘OK’.

d) When you are prompted to restart the computer, click ‘Restart’.

 

If the issue persists, I would suggest you to contact game support regarding the issue.

 

If you have any queries related to Windows, feel free to post. We will be glad to assist you.

GTA-VC should have no issues with Win7, but when running a clean/new Win7 install if you update

DirectX that may help, if you have not already done so...

Download DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer from Official Microsoft Download Center

- What graphics processor does your machine have, and which driver version have you installed ?

- Have you patched GTA-VC ? This may not fix your problem, but it fixes some graphics corruption.

- Have you installed Windows updates ? There are a few "Important" non-security updates  that

are  games related .

( Note there is a problem update that you may not want to install if you have a collection of disk based games.

You can read more about it in my rant  ---here---  )
