Application Error
« on: February 04, 2004, 01:39:50 am »

OK - I have played UQM many times and have run it about twice a week since I got it about two years ago. Then today it just quit on me!

Here is what it gives me:
"The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click OK to terminate the application."

It brings up the black screen in the background as regular exept there is no text on it. It does not at all bring up the "front"  window of which you play on.

My system specs.
40 GB (about 3 GB free)
512 Ram
1.5 GHZ
Windows XP home edition

I tried reinstalling it and restarting my CPU. No luck. Any one know what is the problem?

EDIT: Thanks Mika - I forgot to put it in the correct topic  Cry

I know you won't belive this, but I said (after working on it with no results for hours) "bad computer" AND IT WORKED!!!!!   It was so neat!  -I mean a voice obeying computer! I at first thought it was the change I made before I said that to my CPU - but it turns out I already tried that!
Thanks for your attention DJ - But my CPU has offfically fixed itself!!

Oh, we should put this in the FAQ list. "If your computer won't run, try talking to it."

A strange thing will happen: It will shut down. Even if you shut on him and say "bad computer!". But this is ONLY my computer. For example: I write perfectly good html code, and it doesn't work. Someone else write the exact same thing and it works. You search and find no errors.
conclusion: Computers hate me.

I just tried it to my CPU DJ - and it did nothing. As for the HTML code - sorry I find it hard to believe that your CPU will not accept perfectly good HTML just because it is from you. (Of course, if I did not experience it myself then I would not believe that my CPU did what it did either....   :-/

If I had to speculate, perhaps it was some kind of persistent timing error, and you had an unlucky streak?

But I tried it mulipule times. O - maybe I know - I had turned my CPU to stand-by before saying that to it. Maybe that changed something?

Note: I had already restarted it many times.

It just happened to our teacher in computers! She says that the only thing that can cause it is a problem with the program... In your case, I suggest you reinstalling windows...

No, no - My CPU fixed the problem - I am just telling what I did while I had it. Sorry for the confusion. As for reinstalling windows - that seems kind of drastic for a problem like this.

If by "talking" to the CPU solved the problem, reinstall. If you did something else, don't reinstall. Besides, reinstalling and formating c: (or your windows driver) from time to time is a good thing.
