icon_question NFS Carbon + vista = problems.. :\

Hello

I just bought NFS Carbon (in other words, it's a legit copy with serial and all..). Instalation completes fine, no problems yet. Im running vista home premium, and when I trie to start Carbon I only reach the EA intro at the very beginning before the error "NFSC.exe has stopped working" and I have to close the program.

I have tried to run it in compability mode for WinXP SP2 as well as run as admin, but this doesn't help..

My computer is brand new with c2d 2GHZ, go7600 and 1GB ram, so it fullfils the requirements perfectly.. And I really looked foreward to this game, so please.. Please help me out!

EDIT: Got this error while reinstaling the game. "Instalation cannot continue because this game requires DirectX o or higher to be installed on your system." HELP!

And on a more general note...an EA game having problems with anything slightly out of the ordinary (ordinary being Windows XP, obviously)? NEVER!!!

I installed Dx on it, and now I could complete the instalation. And trying to start the game returned me to the problems I faced the first time, "NFSC.exe has stopped working" ... Argh! Any other suggestions?

i dont know anything about vista but does it have a run in compatibilty mode? if so set it to XP. And the thing is these games were made for XP as it says on the back, so not all are going to work on Vista.

Now you can see why I'm reluctant to buy Vista. IN a few Months, when it's compatible with most of my Games, I'll pick it up.
