  1. No problem. Glad to help. Pay if forward next time you figure out an issue
  2. Caseyii, I tracked the issue down to the DisplayLink drivers that power my Targus docking station. Once I installed these (off the CD that came with the dock) I started getting the same issue. It would happen even when I wasn't connected to the dock. I removed the drivers, all was well. I downloaded the latest drivers off their website (http://www.displaylink.com/support/downloads.php) and installed those, and it still works fine. I was able to finish (well, play enough to see all the characters levels) and enjoyed the game. If you don't have the Targus docking station, I'd look at other drivers you may have installed as well. Hope this helps.
  3. I had some trouble installing the Sim City beta as well. I decided to reinstall the OS (something I like to do every once in awhile to clean things up). The first thing I installed was Steam and this game.. Low and behold, it worked. Sorry if I wasted anyone's time. I will keep checking the game as I install more software to see if anything specific "breaks" it. Thanks for all your support Justin and Nathan (and team behind them).
  4. I sent this in a PM to Nathan last night. ============== Still crashing, but slightly differently. This time it says the steam popup real briefly, but it only says setting up for the first time, it does not say anything about installing windows vc. Then you see the cursor for the game, and then the error message. The real difference is that I still have the cursor when I am hovering over anywhere but the task bar or the error popup. Before it was the regular windows cursor. I’ve uninstalled again and downloaded from scratch after a restart and stilll nothing.. I also tried the screen.dat, same problem... the only difference I can get is when I do full screen= false...then everything goes white instead of black...same results otherwise.
  5. Any new updates coming? I am dying to play this, and if it doesn't work I want to figure out how to return it and get it on Xbox or something.
  6. FYI... I also uninstalled the Microsoft VC and then manually reinstalled it, along with the updates using windows updates.

  8. So I noticed there are three other events that happen in the Event Manager every time The Cave fails to load. These were showing up as informational, not errors. ---------- 1001 ------------ Log Name: Application Source: Windows Error Reporting Date: 1/24/2013 3:01:09 PM Event ID: 1001 Task Category: None Level: Information Keywords: Classic User: N/A Computer: EMGXPS02.xxxxxx.com Description: Fault bucket 3375414112, type 1 Event Name: APPCRASH Response: Not available Cab Id: 0 Problem signature: P1: Cave.exe P2: P3: 51000286 P4: Cave.exe P5: P6: 51000286 P7: c0000005 P8: 0024d1ca P9: P10: Attached files: C:\Users\xxxxx\AppData\Local\Temp\WERFD36.tmp.WERInternalMetadata.xml These files may be available here: C:\Users\xxxxxxx\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportArchive\AppCrash_Cave.exe_7fa2e70e79f2ad067d3509bee298a1a3b95f219_1e6c0ea3 Analysis symbol: Rechecking for solution: 0 Report Id: edb2b930-6679-11e2-a766-c4850878ca07 Report Status: 0 Event Xml: 1001 4 0 0x80000000000000 23572 Application EMGXPS02.xxxxxxxxxxx.com 3375414112 1 APPCRASH Not available 0 Cave.exe 51000286 Cave.exe 51000286 c0000005 0024d1ca C:\Users\xxxxxx\AppData\Local\Temp\WERFD36.tmp.WERInternalMetadata.xml C:\Users\xxxxxx\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportArchive\AppCrash_Cave.exe_7fa2e70e79f2ad067d3509bee298a1a3b95f219_1e6c0ea3 0 edb2b930-6679-11e2-a766-c4850878ca07 0 -------------------------------- 9010 ----------------- Log Name: Application Source: Desktop Window Manager Date: 1/24/2013 3:01:02 PM Event ID: 9010 Task Category: None Level: Information Keywords: Classic User: N/A Computer: EMGXPS02.xxxxxx.com Description: A request to disable the Desktop Window Manager was made by process (Cave.exe) Event Xml: 9010 4 0 0x80000000000000 23569 Application EMGXPS02.xxxxxxx.com Cave.exe ------------- 9013 --------------- Log Name: Application Source: Desktop Window Manager Date: 1/24/2013 3:01:02 PM Event ID: 9013 Task Category: None Level: Information Keywords: Classic User: N/A Computer: EMGXPS02.xxxxxxx.com Description: The Desktop Window Manager was unable to start because composition was disabled by a running application Event Xml: 9013 4 0 0x80000000000000 23570 Application EMGXPS02.xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.com
  9. After removing local cache, restarting, and reinstalling The Cave, I still had the same issue. I also took someone else's suggestion to start steam as administrator... that did not work.
  10. I've disabled UAC, no problem. Same issue. I terminated all non-essential processes and still the same thing. The steam popup I mentioned also says performing first time setup, which is weird. I've just deleted my local cache and i am going to restart and install it again.
  11. I put my power settings on high performance and still the same thing. I've also already tried setting both graphics cards. Also, to note, every time I try running the game I get the windows UAC asking if I want to allow Steam Client Service to make changes, and every other time I try to run the game I get a steam popup saying "Installing Microsoft VC Redist Packages" Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I've been eager to try this game since it was announced. Again, thanks for the excellent response time
  12. Thanks for the quick reply. I am working straight of my Dell XPS 15 inch laptop with only the A/C adapter attached. The graphics card is Nvidia Geforce GT 640M.
  13. Windows 7 Pro Steam The Cave Every time I try to start The Cave I briefly see the cursor for the game, then black screens flash, and then I get a notification from windows 7 that says the following: Cave.exe has stopped working I've updated my graphics card, manually applied the redistributes, verified local game cache, restarted my computer, everything that the FAQs suggests and still nothing fixes this issue. Here is an error in the event log: Log Name: Application Source: Application Error Date: 1/24/2013 8:31:22 AM Event ID: 1000 Task Category: (100) Level: Error Keywords: Classic User: N/A Computer: EMGXPS02.Xxxx.com Description: Faulting application name: Cave.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x51000286 Faulting module name: Cave.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x51000286 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x0024d1ca Faulting process id: 0x1204 Faulting application start time: 0x01cdfa503c452fb5 Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\TheCave\Cave.exe Faulting module path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\TheCave\Cave.exe Report Id: 7c8528f5-6643-11e2-b93f-c4850878ca07 Event Xml: 1000 2 100 0x80000000000000 23234 Application EMGXPS02.xxxxxxx.com Cave.exe 51000286 Cave.exe 51000286 c0000005 0024d1ca 1204 01cdfa503c452fb5 C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\TheCave\Cave.exe C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\TheCave\Cave.exe 7c8528f5-6643-11e2-b93f-c4850878ca07
