My platform is :

Windows 7 Professional 64 bits - Service Pack 1

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\ doesn't have "War For The Overworld" directory.

When I try to launch directly by WFTOGame.exe as administrator, the game start to launch :

but it crashes during the loading after a windows popup that asking me Steam wants to use the WFTO's file : runasadmin.vdf. Answer "Yes" or "No" to this popup produces the crash.

Note that the game is not installed on the same drive as Windows.

I have an USB headset but even when it's unplugged, the game launch fails with the same error.

Can you help me please ?

Hello !

I solved this crash by updating my Windows 7 with optionnals updates on NVIDIA, Intel, etc... this updates cost me 1 Gb but at least the game works :)

Have a nice day,
