Crash to Desktop after Videos (before menu)

Postby dsdhornet » 14 Nov 2013, 07:25

I'm trying to play DM (single-player) on a Windows 7 64-bit with 2x ATI HD 3870. DVD version. When started, program displays the 3 intro videos, then crashes to desktop without an error message. Depending on the resolution set, sometimes the loading splash screen shows up for a second or two before it crashes. Have tried deleting registry files, changing dxlevel, changing resolution, using Microsoft application compatibility settings, etc.

Any suggestions?
