Still won't launch. W7 Steam version.

posted by Lyricon on - Viewed by 653 users

For the past 2 weeks for SOME reason this game decided to never launch again. Everytime I go to launch the game I get a black screen then an error exclaiming that 'the walking dead 101.exe has stopped working'.
I really have tried EVERYTHING. I have tried re verifying, re-installing a number of different fixes I have found on message boards and have done EVERYTHING Steam has suggested. Still, just a crash.
I am about half way through this game, and I mean it when it was working FINE 2 weeks ago.
This is my last effort for I have also read that Telltale isn't exactly aces with support. Sooooo if someone knows anything about this, or has a suggestion I would really like to hear it. As I said, I am halfway through and I dont want to Youtube the remainder.

Thanks in advance.

  • I had this a while ago, It's easily fixed. Go into C drive and go to Program files (x86)/Steam/SteamApps/Common/The walking dead. Right click on WalkingDead 101 and go to properties, on the menu go to compatibility and run as administrator. Then change the compatibility settings to Windows XP (Service pack 3)
    Hope this helps :D
