Windows 7: Application has stopped working...Win7 HP x64

Application has stopped working...Win7 HP x64

Hello all,

I have been attempting to load Future Pinball (Future Pinball) and also visual pinball for about 2 months now. I've submitted forum questions in 5 different places (my first one on this forum) asking for recommendations. I have updated graphics drivers, uninstalled and re-installed so many times I cannot count. Future Pinball takes 5 minutes to download, install and get working on an XP-SP2 machine (my older laptop). I have a Dell Zino HD with ATI Radeon HD 3200 Mobility driver. I am running this software in XP-SP3 / admin compatibility mode. I've spent 40+ hours trying things to get this software to work and ZERO.

I have turned off UAC (once I learned about it). I have 2GB RAM on the cpu.

The error I get is "Future Pinball has stopped working...". The software loads and runs fine, but when I click "PLAY" to play a table, I get this error.

Does anyone have ANY ideas that I could try to get this to work? Even any "duh BIFF" things I could be doing wrong. I'm new to Windows 7 - love it - except for getting this game to work is a nightmare. I have toyed with the idea of going back to XP, but Dell has no XP drivers for this machine.

Win7/HP/x64, ATI Radeon HD3200 Mobility, Dell Zino HD 400, 2GB RAM, Athlon 2650e 1.6GHz.

Thank you for any help,

Correction - Win7 does not crash...the app just stops working with NO explanation. Is there any way to find out WHY the app crashed?
