Did you find a solution for your problem?

I bought the game a few weeks ago and it worked fine then, I wanted to play it again today and I get the same error.

In the cm2.log was an error until I changed the language of the game from german to english but the game still crashes on startup.

Yes of course, the problem was a faulty physx driver. Comepletely remove your PhyysX driver and reinstall the newest version.

Thanks for the quick answer.

I tried your solution, it doesn't help, I still get the same error.

Thats bad, i only did some reinstallments of visual c++ redistributables. But you could try to install an older verson of physx. Or try to start it without physx.

I have installed Physx version 8.09.04 and it worked. It still crashed later, but I could play for a while.
Thanks for the tips.

Having the same problem. Uninstalled latest Physx (initially it would not uninstall so I had to download latest Physx driver, right click and choose Uninstall, then it would really uninstall) then installed 8.09.04. Still crashed. Uninstalled CM2 and reinstalled. Then game ran but got in loop with activemovie window. Closed app. Re-ran it, and crashed with original crash at CM2.exe. The build complains about my redist is newer than what is expected. Of course it doesn't tell you what redist you SHOULD have. So, in general this app is completely non-functional. Sure would be nice if they could fix.

If any of you still cannot get the game to start, I recently found a solution to my crashing problem that I have not seen anywhere else, perhaps it could help you too. Check out my posts #53 and #54 in the pinned thread "Statement regarding compatibility...", link:

Where is the game crashing at ?

I had checked our game folder for the Phys X Resdistributable file and noticed it was an old version. This old version may not be installing on Windows 8.1 for some reason. I would remove the one our game installed from the Control Panel and install the one here:

Additionally, I would remove the Visual C Runtime from the Control Panel, and then manually run the install file from the VC Redist folder within the game folder and reboot your computer and try again.
