    What's "Access Violation" Mean? - Game Problem

    Hi there,

    For roughly 3 days now, I've been struggling to get an old game to work on my PC called "Army Men RTS". The issue I am having is that whenever I try to launch the game, nine out of ten times it normally results in me getting an error message like "Pandemic Studios error: ACCESS Violation 00b26030h". Now, the error code itself has a tendency to change numbers, so I am not sure if the code is really relevant, considering the fact it doesn't even give me any search results if you try to search it.

    If you want to try to run the game yourself, here is our community forum page:


    As far as system specifications are considered, I should definitely be able to run it. My specs are the following:

    OS: Windows 10
    Ram: 10 gigs
    CPU - AMD FX(tm)-8350 Eight core processor
    System Type: 64 bit operating system
    Graphics Card Sapphire HD 7970

    Now, I've had other people in my gaming community install and run this game, and they have been able to play with no problem while running on win 7 & win 10 and using hardware from AMD to Nvidia.

    The solutions I've tried so far are the following:

    Ran the main exe as admin: [Failed]
    Ran the game in every compatibility mode: [Failed]
    Made an Exception in Data Execution Prevention For Army Men RTS: [Failed]
    Tried Running in Both Windows 7 & Windows 10: [Failed]
    Tried installing 3do folder to program files x86 and standard program files: [Failed]

    I understand that this is an old game, and it's unlikely that it'll run on new technology, but if I can run Age of Empires 1 from 1997 and Fallout 4, then there is no excuse why I shouldn't be able to run this game. I don't know who else to look to, and I'm willing to provide videos, screenshots, and even skype with anyone if you can help me resolve this issue.

    Please help me if you can!
