Default Win 10 64-bit

i7-4790K @ 5 GHz, 16 GB G.Skill Sniper Ram, MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G.

So while I agree DW and other games can tax your system, on the other hand, I should be able to handle much much more system stress with no problems. I note it is only the new surface (and some air) platforms which makes me wonder if it's some sort of graphic setting crash/error/conflict.

If you have CD version, did you install before RA patch 1.04?

No, my point is that DW/RA shouldn't tax your system.
Your hardware can run circles around mine.
Maybe its time to bite the bullet and buy a fresh install of DW?
You can get the direct download version of DW from Strategy First on Amazon for about $15:

It takes less time to download and install than RA plus its already patched.

Just be sure you put the display DLL file (included with RA) in the same folder as the DW exe if you run Win 8 or Win 10.

It's not solution. I have CD version and newest RA 1.44 runs very well.

For me it looks like not correct installation. RA should be ALWAYS indtalled on clear (patched to 1.04) version of DW.

In other hand maybe graphic card settings causes problems? Have you set all 3D options as "controlled by aplication"?

Are you sure?

Its none of my business where tAKticool got their DW source files from, but I suspect they may have become corrupt due to the problems encountered.

You can re-install them from now until doomsday and the problems may change but the problems WILL remain (if you keep trying to re-install from a bad source).

I've been running the direct download version from Strat First since I set up this desktop. DW stock has been rock-solid. Some versions/updates of RA have been a little buggy but I've only seen a small number of CTD's over the last year.

Yes, i'm sure.
In our small community all problems (like described by tAKticool) was ALWAYS caused from wrong installation -no matter which version of DW. I know players with Steam, original CD, CD from paper magazine, and pirated CD images.

Mostly they forgot "only 1 step" like:
1) doesn't install patch 1.04 before RA
2) installation on previous RA ("updating" - this causes many bugs)
3) they forgot run additional *.bat program from patches to RA (mostly in Graphics directory)
4) running installation process on OS partition without admin rights
5) running cmputil instead correct *.bat file (part of RA patch)


Sometime even installation on "not deleted" directory from previous version DW+RA causes problems

Of course most players doesn't read anything: readme files, weapon manual, editor manual, USNI ref. (in game) etc. They prefer ask here, on subsim forum or RedRodgers forum for every single thing (ususaly very easy for checking)
