game will not start and blue screens me.
So I have read through the "Star ruler will not start pin" and have manually installed OA and copied OpenAL32.dll to star ruler and got one in the windows file too. when I start the game i get a black screen and then I get a blue screen of death. It restarts my system.
I am on windows 7 64.

A program should not be able to bluescreen you. That usually means there's some serious conflict or error in your drivers, or some low-level program is doing something wrong. We would be unable to fix this error, and I doubt that I would be able to diagnose it from your logs.

This may help start the process of diagnosing the problem. It is likely a hardware or driver problem.

After this you can get the error message on bsod.

the first thing you always do in this situation is update all your drivers to current version.
if it still happens after that it's probably hardware which is the last thing the luser ever wants to hear but there it is.
