My system is a Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q882 with an nVidia GTS 360M running Win 7 Home Premium 64bit.
BG I crashes after the intro movies. The message I get says BGMain2.exe is the issue.
I did some hunting around in various forums and followed instructions in one thread that suggested using the MS Application Compatibility Toolkit - to no avail.
I set baldur.exe, bgmain.exe, and bgmain2.exe all to Win XP compatibility mode and checked to disable visual themes, desktop composition, and display scaling on high dpi settings. I also made sure my video drivers were up to date.
None of that worked. Instinct tells me that it's a video issue, but I'm not sure what to do other than what I've done.
I'd appreciate suggestions!
P.S. BG II runs fine
