    Windows 10

    BFME 2 (and ROTWK) crash on startup Options.ini is not the problem

    Hello, everyone! Let me start out with explaining the problem.

    This does not apply to Battle for middle earth 1 as it works fine on the Laptop.

    When I launch Battle for Middle-earth 2 the program launches the fullscreen window, it is black for about 2 seconds then crashes and displays the error Battle for Middle-Earth 2 has stopped working the program will now close. With BFME 2 Rise of the witch king it's another story, I am able to launch the game no problem everything works fine but when I click on ANY tab it crashes and displays the same message.

    Things I know and have tried:

    1: I have both games installed on a different PC and everything is fine
    2: I have the options.ini file, it crashes otherwise
    3: I have reinstalled both games a few times to see if that would be the problem
    4: The discs are clean
    5: Running in adminstrator mode
    6: I am aware both these games are compatible with windows 10
    7: The game has previously worked on windows 8

    The specs I think are essential:

    OS: windows 10
    Graphics card: Nvidia GeForce 840M
    CPU: i5 4210H @2.90 GHZ

    or just an MSI 2PE leopard Gaming notebook

    You are welcome to ask me for more specs or for me to describe the problem more below.
