My Chessmaster Grandmaster Edition is crashing after showing the initial splash screen. I have already updating to 1.2 patch as well as tried various compatibility modes.
Here are some more details
OS : Windows XP SP2
Latest Intel Graphics driver - 126.96.36.19918, Intel G33/31 Express Chipset Family.
Application popup: Chessmaster: Grandmaster Edition: game.exe - Application Error : The instruction at "0x1001a232" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "read".
The application, C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Chessmaster Grandmaster Edition\game.exe, generated an application error The error occurred on 08/03/2012 @ 22:53:26.296 The exception generated was c0000005 at address 1001A232 (Kernel!sTexture__Release)
Is this a new install, or did you have Chessmaster previously working on your machine? Did you remember to install the version of DirectX that came on the DVD? This is required, as Chessmaster will only use that version of DirectX. And what programs (if any) are you running in the background?
Also, I'd recommend installing Service Pack 3 for Windows XP.
Can you also give some more information about your machine?
P.S.: Please don't make duplicate posts.
