Looking at your config-log.txt - it looks like you have done the right thing so far.

Are you running the game with CC? It may be that there is corrupt CC.

Are you running the game as adminstrator?
Have you set the compatibility to Windows 8?

yes i do have cc i will take them out and retry the game without them. i am running it as administrator but i forgot how to set the compatibility for the game. i'll google it and go from there and then i'll let you know if it works. Thank You Smile

To set the compatibility, you right-click on the .exe and choose 'troubleshoot compatibility' - then go with Windows 8.

Alternatively. Select the shortcut that you have, right-click and choose properties, then choose the tab 'compatibility'. You can set the program to be run as administrator and Windows 8 for all users there.
