Nothing ever comes up though after clicking launch. I've tried all amounts of settings. I've also followed the reinstalling of video drivers method mentioned in other threads. Meaning:
I uninstalled my video drivers, restarted, it installed its drivers automatically, and i manually installed the NVidia drivers from the website, then rebooted. Still gets "amnesia.exe has stopped working" error. I've looked for an error log in documents>amnesia but all thats there is main>cfg file. I've also tried deleting that.
I have vista 64bit with geforce 9800GT graphics card. My rig should own this game Any help would be much appreciated
I feel like nobody reads my posts. First asked for an error log, which as stated above I do not have, then linked to the troubleshooting thread which I've mentioned that I've DONE that troubleshooting. A LONG time ago, and I stated it. Also stated theres no error log, so keep that in mind too. My error is amnesia.exe has stopped working. i've done the basic troubleshooting on that thread.
ps, I've done the troubleshooting in that thread. it has NOT worked.
If you haven't done the troubleshooting on that thread, please don't post in this thread, you're behind!
I'f fixed it, and I'm going to give instructions here in case anyone else has the same issue:
I decided to see if anything running was crashing the program, so I disabled all of my startup programs and services through msconfig, and then rebooted. The game still crashed, and no icons were in the system tray (next to the clock and sound) regarding my antivirus utilities (microsoft security essentials, threatfire, and avast). I figured that meant they werent running, but upon closer inspection, the services still were. I disabled them one at a time to figure out if any of them were causing it, and it was Threatfire.
If you have a crash at the startup and have threatfire/vista/64bit (I'm not sure what all the conditions are, but threatfire mainly) You need to disable it from the services.msc.
Click start > Type in the startsearch "services.msc" and then press enter.
Find Threatfire, select it and click Stop in the upper left corner. (see screenshots)
After threatfire was turned off, amnesia started right up! Thanks for the help and I hope this helps others with the same crash!
p.s. It's a good idea to disabled ANY active antimalware programs on the computer if you're getting the same crash I did, this means AVG, Panda, Fsecure, Threatfire, Avast, Microsoft Security Essentials, Norton, Mcafee, etc. If you have to, disable them through services.msc as well, and remember you can always turn them back on if this doesnt fix it.
