When I bought Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box yesterday for $5 I downloaded it and it kept crashing when launching the game, I'm going to list 3 simple steps to get your game working, which worked for me.

1. Go to C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\burnout(tm) paradise the ultimate box and right click BurnoutParadise.exe and go to Compatibility and tick Run this program in compatibility mod for: and select Windows XP (Service Pack 3), if Service Pack 3 is not there, choose Windows XP (Service Pack 2)

2. If the above does not work, go to Steam -> Properties -> Launch Options and when copy and paste this text into it.
And then press Ok

3. If the above fails, go to Steam and go to Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box in your library and click Play, then you will get 3 options to choose from, select Configuration and then for Webcam select None.

If none of the above works, be sure to post here. :cool:

2. should be add only -multithread to the Burnout Launch Options.
The one I posted is for the Reatil ver of the game and it only needs mod short cut for it to work.
