this is very strange...
You meet the minimum requirements.

Try this: when you launch the game, open immedialty the Task Manager, click on "show all process" in bottom-left, then search the process of the game, right click on it, go to "set affinity". A window will open, now leave selectet only "CPU 0". Then close the process and restart the game. In this way the program will use only 1 core of your CPU, and this could solve this issue.
I used this tweak several times to solve some applications loading issues...

Another way to solve this could be creating a virtual machine and installing Windows XP on it...

Try also to turn off anti-virus programs and to defrag your Hard Drive.

Just gave that a go as well no luck.
Also tried it under repair or maintain.

I use to play this game awhile back on my old laptop but the laptop no longer works was an old model had windows xp on it.

Do you think it may have something to do with my internet connection or ISP.
According there game support they think it maybe the reason.
Game requires internet connection to run.

Ok.
Turned of firewall.
turned of Antivirus
Also did a disk frag.
Tried running it again all the compatibility settings no joy (
I am still getting this error coming up "s-shot" only on one of the compatibility setting and that is the standard settings also comes up in run as administration.
I talked to a few others what play the game via there forums who have the similar set up as i do windows 7 they have had no issue`s just download click on the icon and play so this is very strange. I thought there may have been a corrupted file , but the download comes with a repair option in case that happens downloaded the game a few times. tried repairing option under compatibility. I am using the same connection as i use to use with that game only difference beaning different computer.

Also the last few times I have tried starting the game i have had task manger open CPU for the game goes from 0 to 25.
