I get the same error after the current patch and installing in compatibility mode. Also am running XP I am running the game in compatibility mode and i have the visual whats its disabled. So i dont get it ive tryied looking around but i can't seem to find the fix. I also have this installed on my laptop i didnt do the patch or anything and it works fine which annoys me more as its on vista.
right click your short cut do properties then compatibility then check disable visual themes worked for me same problem.
