Windows 7 Crash on Startup at Loading screen

  • updated
  • Declined

When loading I get the splash screen which then makes way for the loading screen. I get the art in the background and a loading bar begins to fill. As soon as the cursor turns into a claw holding a pick, it freezes. Clicking again causes it to crash to desktop, stating the application is not responding.

I know wireless headphones have been known to cause problems, but I don't use any.

Hello John,
did you also check if there is a solution for your problem in this:
or that list:

Your log does not contain any errors though.

Can you also try to wait a bit longer after the loading bar is full.
The first start of the game can take a while under circumstances.
