Empire Earth "The memory could not be read"
Posted on 2006-06-06
I've recently purchased a new PC:
AMD Athlon64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+
NVIDIA GeForce 6150 video
NVIDIA RAID-5 Hard Disk Array (450+ GB 4-disk array of 160 GB drives)
Window XP Pro SP2 (fully patched)
All drivers for Video, Sound, and Chipset at highest release level
27" Westinghouse Monitor
-I've run CCleaner
-Windows Registry Analysis and Correction Tool
-Dxdiag (no errors)
-Loaded both Empire Earth Patches
-Disabled everything but basics in MSCONFIG
-Uninstalled and Reinstalled the game
-Deleted everything in %temp%, C:\windows\temp, c:\windows\prefetch, %userprofile%\local settings\temporary internet files
-Downloaded and installed the demo version of Dungeon Siege II to test my DirectX setup and compatibility (worked fine)
-Upgraded every driver available on the ASUS web site for my motherboard, video, and sound
Even with all this power and effort, I get:
Empire Earth: Empire Earth.exe - Application Error
The instruction at "0x211119d6" referenced memory at "0x0c3b6f50". The memory could not be "read".
Click on OK to terminat the program.
As soon as the beggining movies are over and the game is about to start. Any ideas?
