Hi and welcome

We need the exact error. go into event viewer. type event viewer in search and go to windows logs>application tab. look for errors (red "X" in left column) that relate to the problem. look for app crash, app hang, etc. find the ones with your game in them. when you have found them note the event ID and source and post them.

To check on your directX status you can type dxdiag in search

You can also try running in compatibility mode. right click the file that launches the app and go to compat tab. Check run as XP

Let us know if you need help with any of this.

HON hangup @ F10 (calls up HON Menu) w/ W7 32-bit

Howdy. I'm getting a HoN hang when I try to access the HoN menu in-game by pressing f10.
I have a NVIDIA GeForce 8200M G updated to latest driver.
I followed same steps you mentioned to OP. Here's the error note:

Log Name: Application
Source: Application Hang

Event ID: 1002
Task Category: (101)

The program hon.exe version stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Action Center control panel.
Process ID: db4
Start Time: 01ca5f18e5f1d730

edit: After trying multiple ways to reproduce the error, i am unable to. Very perplexing, considering I was 100% erroring before I posted.
