I had an issue. below is the support email i recieved;

"This version of the game does not officially support Windows 7, so we are limited in the support we can provide unfortunately.

The hyperthreading in your i7 CPU will mean that it is recognised as an 8 core, which can cause conflict with the game.

The problem can be normally be overcome by doing the following:

Replace the contents of c:\program files\codemasters\DiRT\system\workerMap8Core.xml
with that of c:\program files\codemasters\DiRT\system\workerMap4Core.xml

If you open the workerMap4Core.xml file and copy the contents, then open the workerMap8Core.xml, delete the existing contents, and then paste the information you have just copied this will replace the information.

Alternatively delete the workerMap8Core.xml file, make a copy of the workerMap4Core.xml file and then rename this new copy workerMap8Core.xml"
