An APPCRASH error means that an application has crashed in Windows. This error is usually caused by software that is not compatible with your current version of Windows, not configured correctly, or possibly corrupt.
Here are some steps you can take to address the problem:
- Try running the game in Compatibility mode. If the game is not compatible with your version of Windows, try running the game in Compatibility mode by logging on to the computer as an administrator. Then browse to the games executable file, right-click on the file and click Properties, click the Compatibility tab, place a check in the Run this program in compatibility mode for: and select the version of Windows previous to the your current version. Click OK and then test the game.
- Check for updates to your game software. Some games install other software such as punkbuster that is used to detect cheating. If this software is disabled, or if your PCs settings cause a violation, you may see the APPCRASH error and be kicked out of the game. You can check for known issues and updates for the game by visiting the game publisher’s website.
