Crashes on startup on two WinXP computers

Postby Kaare » Fri 29 May 2009 - 08:30

I cannot get Motorboat to run on two different Windows XP computers.

Computer 1:
Windows XP Pro SP2
Geforce 8500GT graphics card

Computer 2:
Windows XP Pro SP3
Intel GZ946 Chipset with integrated directX 9 graphics card

They both crash when they are about to load the scenery with the following log message:

I have tried installing DirectX 9 on both of them and update the graphics drivers but this does not help.

I have now tried running the simulator on Windows 7 32-bit with success after i installed the d3drm.dll file.

The only difference i can find on all three installations are the language. On the two computers where the simulator crashes with the above mentioned error, the windows language is danish while it is english on the Windows 7 machine and on my personal machine at home it is also english (Windows XP), those two machines can run the simulator perfectly.

I have written to helpdesk and in this forum and still not received any kind of support regarding this issue, please advise.

When can we expect a new updated version of motorboat simulator? This issue has not been fixed still.
