I am running 64-Bit Windows 7 on a XPS 17 laptop. Until today, I had no troubles running the game although I was experiencing some strange video issues (e.g. map and unit pics would not appear) that typically corrected itself after a battle. I opted to reset the settings back to the defaults by hitting the "Default" button. Now, I cannot load the game - it crashes shortly after starting it up and here is what is shown in the log file:
PROGRAM IS CRASHED!!!

I have updated my video drivers, uninstalled/reinstalled the game, followed the Steam Support instructions and to no avail. I have been pounding my head for two hours on this with no results. Am I the only one or is someone else experiencing this issue?
Thanks for your time and assistance. I did not find anything already posted - if there is, my apologies.
Look for my in the padded room in the provided white dress coat... LOL
