Game is immediately crashing on startup
I wanted to play isaac today but was suprised to see that it would crash instantly. I tried numerous things to try and fix the crash including, deleting adn reinstalling the game thorugh steam, verifying the game cache, running as administrator, running with compatibility for older windows OS's, Opting out of the steam beta update program. Nothing has worked. The game continues to to crash on startup

I also tried downlaoding and playing the version of the game hosted by the humble bundle 7. But the same thing happens with that instance of the game as well.

Below is the what the windows crash reporter displays to me

yes, I currently have flash 11.8.800.94 and I tried installing and reinstalling flash a couple times. is there a specific version of flash needed to run the game? maybe an older version?

If i just want to play the game I can do it multiple ways, I can use my laptop, I can run it in a Windows XP virtual machine on my desktop, but i'm trying to figure out what this error i'm getting is.

I cannot do what you described above because the game DOES NOT LAUNCH, not even for a second, that's what immediate crash on startup means. I appreciate your help, but waht you posted above did not help.

I've read that the Exception Code: c0000005 error is some sort of memory issue
