Windows 7: Medal of Honor: Allied Assault crashes to the desktop

It works perfectly fine on an older computer that has XP on it, so it's not the disk.

Those all work fine on my machine. Have you looked in the error log to see if there is a specific cause ?

From the desktop, right click the Computer icon and select Manage from the dropdown menu.
The management console should arrive, there are icons in the left pane, one is Event viewer,
left click the icon, after a short wait the Summary of Admin events will arrive.
You will see the following ,critical; error; warning with a clickable + sign next to it. Now look at the right of the box there are columns to indicate when the event happened. You don't need to read them all, look for a time when you know the problem occured, say in the last hour, or several times in the previous day, go back to the left and click to expand a log to see what happened, usually there will be an error number and a faulting program or module name.

Post a snip of this back here and I'll see what we can do.

This is quite common and is called an access violation and it's critical in so far as the application in not allowed executable memory space.
usually the most frequent cause is a Ram problem, so you should test your memory first.
Also there can be a problem with DEP on older .exe's Data Execution Prevention is both a hard and software method of preventing programs running if needed.
You can stop it from running by editing the boot.ini file, but this should be a last measure, not a first.

The screen will go black and simply say "Medal of Honor Allied Assault(TM) has stopped working." I have to use ctrl alt delete to close the error message. I've experimented with all the compatibility modes with no luck. I've installed all the patches as well- again, no luck. Its expansion packs will not work either, and all do the same crash and give the same error message. I've done two clean uninstallations and wiped its presence from the registry with no success. When I access the files, everything is normal. There are no missing paks.

Like I said, all other games from this time and even MoH Airborne work perfectly. Only Allied Assault crashes.

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

I had exact same issue with MOHAA. I have same OS. Tried all solutions above including disabling DEP for MOHAA in Performance options in advanced tab of system properties, but no difference.

Solution was my Nvidia Graphics driver, downloaded latest from Nvidia site Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers and installed.

I already had MOHAA installed but had not played in couple of months. It was working beforehand, eventually remembered windows action centre had asked me to download new nvidia drivers, these drivers caused issue and are different from manual download. Will ignore action centre in future.

Hope this helps somebody.

Hello And How Are You.....My Name Is Alton And Have Recently Replaced My Toshiba Satellite L455D-S5976 (Laptop) Running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit (Computer Died) Which Ran MOHAA Warchest With No Problems.

I Recently Purchased A Toshiba Satellite L745-S4110 (Laptop) Which Is Running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit A Friend Of Mine Suggested A Website That You Can Go To And Check Your System For Many Games And Applications And That Seemed To Indicate My Video Card Is Not What It Should Be. I'm Putting The Web Address Here And Hopefully It Will Help You Can You RUN It | Can I run that game | Game system requirements


Thaniks For Your Time And I Hope That I Have Helped Since Toshiba Can't Be Counted On For That Kind Of Stuff. In My Way Of Thinking......If You Are Making A New Product (Whatever It Is) It Should Be To Improve What You Already Have...Not Make Things Worse. If An OLDER Computer Could Do Things That A NEWER Computer Can't......Something Is Wrong With The Product And Possibly Even The Company!!!!

Hey all,

I have found an answer to the problem, may not work with everyone, but generally people who are playing on a laptop.

Switchable graphics controllers.

Basically, if you have switchable graphics, as many laptops nowerdays do to save battery power, the system will run using your CPU, and when you play a game or something that requires more than standard graphics, it switches to GPU on startup of that game/program.

I stumbled across this after running the configure.exe files for all 3 MOHAA games, and it was telling me that I will be running the game in Intel HD graphics, but I ran a quick check through systemrequirementslab dot com, and it said that I couldn't run it due to the fact I had Intel HD graphics, although it was reading 4gb vRAM. Intel HD with 4gig vram? that would be amazing, but probably not in our lifetimes. Truth is, it was picking up the fact I have a Radeon HD 6633M wacked in my laptop but the info was coming through the cpu. In comes the Catalyst controller!

Open your catalyst controller (or equivalent graphics controller) and change the switchable graphics to manual (this willl make your screen go funny, but don't worry), click on the Power option, switchable graphics, select high performance GPU, funny screen again, run configure.exe again on the MOHAA games you have installed, and voila, Medal of Honor in all its glory!

I hope this helps whoever is still looking for answers! And I am sure there will be an option for this for nVidia Switchable graphics systems

Happy gaming!

EDIT: Still needs to be run in XP sp2 or 3 compatability mode, and don't worry about the desktop dooburywhatsit checkbox

Would that be with the current cpu's with graphics native to them on their die?
