"Children of the Nile has stopped working."
I just bought "Children of the Nile: Enhanced Edition" from Steam, but the game refuses to start. All I get is an error message "Children of the Nile has stopped working." I have tried all the basic tricks, like re-installing, running it as an administrator, different compatibility modes, tweaking my graphic card´s 3d-settings, putting the game exe on DEP exception list etc. etc.

Has anyone else experienced similar problems?

I'm running the game on Windows 7.

Everytime I chnage the resolution in setings it crashes, which I why I am here posting. If you changed any in game settings try changing them back. It may work.

I haven't been able to start the game at all at any point, so the problem is not in-game settings as such. Nevertheless, thanks for your input.

As I said in the previous post, I haven't been able to start the game at all at any point.

that is the answer to your problem :) download it, take all of the files and put it into a folder that you can remember (I used Desktop), look for an app that is called "DXSETUP"... run it, follow the prompts and your good to go :)

Installing the June 2008 DirectX didn't help, I still receive the same error at the game´s startup. In any case, I appreciate your help, EugeneyouDunse.

have you tried verifying the integrity of the files? Sometimes Steam forgets 1 file to download, and thats what causes the crash. If it still hasn't worked by then, i'm afraid the help ends here :/

I've tried reinstalling the game as well as verifying the integrity of the game cache. The underlying problem seems to be something beyond any traditional tricks and fixes.

I can only hope that I'll some day manage to stumble upon the correct solution, whatever that might be.

What about changing Windows Explorer to basic?

I get the same problem. However, the Alexandria expansion works. Isn't that bizarre?
