Angry GRID Has Stopped Working / Windows 7 64bit


I bought GRID from a retail store since it was released "somewhere in 2008", I finished the game and I was really in love with it!
Anyway..after a couple of months I bought the game via Steam in 7/2008, because I like how Steam works and all my games now are purchased via Steam
I was able to play GRID since, but now with my new "computers" I can't even get it to start up!

It shows GRID logo then it stopped working
Any ideas how to fix this annoying issue? I want to play this game since the first of 2010 but I can't!
tried to google this issue, and tried to use these commands "-safemode" "-novirtual" but still the same problem..

My current system:
Intel Core i7-980X
3x GTX580 (3-Way SLI)

My other computer:
Intel Core i7-930
AMD 5970 2GB

All running Windows 7 64bit, same problem with all computers
Thanks in advance.

i had the same problim, grid splash sceeen then store page for game would popup after the grid splash screen closed.

grid running all max settings:

sli 460 gtx sc (2x768mb ram)
12 gig ram

first: fix was logon to windows live and download windows live games.
second: turn hyper threading off in bios. (could not get the 8 core ini tweek to work)
third: open game ports in fire wall and router

small tweeks was to turn on v-sync. game was trying to run the gfx cards maxed out. avg 280 fps+. i'm still looking for some trusted ini tweeks. game is useing less then 1 third of the gfx ram and hardly useing any pc ram

My game crashed in the Windows 7 64-bit too, and my audio Drivers are from Realtek, so i entered in the Realtek panel, turned it from "Stereo" to "5.1" and the game worked perfectly!

I just wanted to say that I also have been very dissappointed with the launch error, because no solution worked. I even tried to reinstall Windows 7 and install GRID first. No better. However, today I decided to try the Windows Consumer Preview. And first thing that I installed after all the drivers was GRID. And guess what – so far it works just fine. Relaunched it several times and so far no errors (knock on wood). I imagine few of you would install the new Windows beta just to launch GRID, but it helped me.

I had a hard time installing GRID on Win7 64-bit: "GRID has stopped working"

Turns out the problem was with install path.
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Codemasters\GRID" folder is no good for this game and causes crashes.

Once i installed to "C:\Program Files\Codemasters\GRID", all works fine.

I have Win7-64 and I installed Grid about three weeks ago ... 0 problems at all. runs absolutely fine.

Granted, I haven't installed any of the patches ... those might be game-breakers. Not sure.

juliuspbennett : Probably the worst solution I've ever heard.
