Startup crash during splash screen (Win 10)
I've just purchased on Steam, and the game splash screen loading bar gets to approximately 75% before it crashes.
I'm running Windows 10 pro 64-bit with 32gb RAM, i5-3570 (stock) & GTX 650, with 10gb free on the system/steam SSD.
I'm running all OS updates, including latest Nvidia drivers. I've verified the datastore, disabled all DLCs, and reinstalled the game through Steam. I also confirmed the system audio preferences are through the onboard speaker output only with no USB/headset devices installed, and have dropped the audio rate from 96khz/24-bit to 44.1khz/16-bit.
See attached error.log, output_log.txt & crash.dmp

My firewall had defaulted to blocking WFTO and reversing this fixes the issue, though a bit harsh that causes a crashdump.
Glad to hear it, was it the windows firewall causing the issue?
Yes and no, I use Sphnix software's Windows 10 Firewall Control which is an interface to manage application firewalling using the built in Windows 10 Firewall, so it was that UI that either hadn't prompted or had defaulted to Disable All without my knowledge
