HKShip not responding (FIXED)
Windows 7 64-bit (should work on 32bit windows 7 too)
After google'ing the crap out of this error and finding half fixes all over the place I thought I would share my fix with you

go to:
windows instal drive (C:):\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\SleepingDogs
and right-click HKShip.exe
left click properties and select 'Compatibility' tab
now check the box for 'Run this program in compatability mode' and use the drop down to select Windows 7
then check the box in 'Privilege Level' to Run this program as an administrator

I hope this has helped you play this otherwise great game and lets hope for a fix soon

This is for the error freezing the ingame action, not menu's or boot

fyi my specs are:-
quad core i5 3.40GHz
Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti
Windows 7 64bit Home premium

oh.. perhaps its the version of win7. I am using Windows 7 Home premium are you on the same? does the right click give you a context menu with run as administrator and does that solve your issue if its done?

oh noes! It seems the only person this fix has helped is myself :/

Have you tried deleting the local data, re-downloading & installing it, then aplying the fix?

I just created a desktop short cut and that fixed it for me.

I've tried everything I have found on the internet to fix this issue, but still no such luck. I'm 100% sure though my problem is linked with a fellow Steam users message. Please let me know if you have any suggestions!

"Okay, well I REALLY wanted this game right? well uhm I got it.. one download did no problem but now there is this one download (D3D11Insall) to be exact, that PISSES ME OFF. Like really its says exactly this "Please Install latest service Pack. For instructions on how to install the latest service pack, see Microsoft knowledge article KB935791 (" thats all. LITERALLY. I run windows 7 and this is a Vista/Xp problem? rage. I posted this same thing on the steam support site right? welll no response. LITERALLY so I'm forced to come to you, the hopefully helpfull people here. If you help. Your ♥♥♥♥ing jesus. okay I'm out thanks!"

This game is nothing but a $50 brick. Can't play for more than 2 minutes without getting crashes. DO NOT BUY untill they fix this crap.

It is a great game. It's just unfortunate that you have to manually fix it before you can play it
