Windows 7: Lord of The Rings: Battle For Middle-Earth II has problems starting

Lord of The Rings: Battle For Middle-Earth II has problems starting

Hey Windows 7 users and gamers, I was wondering if you could help me out with a problem I'm having with LOTR:BFME2.

When I click on the icon in the computer window it starts to launch the game. It gives me the window with all the options for BFME2 (like "PLAY" or "CHECK FOR UPDATE") but when I click play, it works and works but it comes back with a window saying "The Battle for Middle-Earth 2 has stopped working." Then when I click cancel, another window pops up saying this:

"Runtime Error!

Program: C:\PROGRA~2\ELECTR~1\THEBAT~1\game.dat


This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information."

I am not running this program in any compatibility mode or as an administrator program. I have a Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit computer, 4GB of RAM, an AMD Athlon II X2 255 Processor at 3.1GHz. I also have the latest patch for this game.

If anyone can provide any help, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Hi there Heatmaster78, welcome to Seven Forums!

Ok I have this game too and this never really happens so do the following:

1. Download and install Revo Uninstaller Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems (Check out this tutorial Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Uninstall Programs on how to uninstall with it).

2. (Make sure your DVD is clean) Insert the disk into your computer and install LOTR:BFME2 again.

3. Update to the latest version BFME 2 1.06 Patch English Download, Lord of the Rings Patches.

4. Make sure the disk is inserted and run the game. Report back your success with this here...

Try using a vanilla game, no mods, trainers, cheats ect. But first start over from Step 1 in my previous post again.

Vanilla game means a game without any mods, trainers, ect. or in other words, an unmodified game (except from updates and DLC of course).

Did u uninstall with Revo and then re-install?

I recently purchased BFME 2 and it will not start up. After I click on the application icon the program begins to boot up and the initial game window (the one seen below) pops up. But then nothing else happens. That screen will stay up for a little while and then crash itself.

Ive look all over and it seems that only the 32bit Win7 will run this? I dont have the expansion pack (BfME2) installed yet. All i get are the two splash screens and the 2nd core of my CPU goes to 100% and it just hangs until i stop it.
