★★★★ Newbie

Hello, I recently bought populous the beginning on origin and when I try to start it, the "program Has stopped working" message keeps coming up.  I've tried running recommended compatibility settings, but that didn't work.

Populous The Beginning

I've just purchased this game while running windows 10 and it wont work at all. I've tried running it on every compatibility mode available.

All I get is D3Ddpop3w has stopped working. I've tried repairing, checking for updates and re-installing. It's not an expensive game but it's ashame to buy something that is broken.

@VThe_TitanV Hi,

 

Which operating system are you using?

Does the game crash at the start or at a later point?

 

Cheers,

Nils

Hi I am having the same issue you have asked for specs above your post. I'm running Windows 10 home and the game crashes at launch so the game won't even start.

 

Below is the error log for the last attempt I made with suggested fixes and compatibility.
