Napoleon: Total War Has stopped working Error Message

T1nTeDT1nTeD Junior MemberPosts: 4Registered Users
I just downloaded this game off of steam yesterday, and for some reason i cant launch the game. It is very frustrating after waiting 5 hours for it to download. Everytime i try to launch it, after around 5-10 seconds a Windows error message appears. It says "Napoleon: Total War Has stopped working. Windows is checking for a solution to the problem." [Loading bar - Then crosses over to next part of error message] "Napoleon: Total War has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if the solution is available." It gives me the option to close the program too. I have no idea why this is happening, but it has happened to one of my games before. One of the files was incorrect (By the way i didn't download the game from steam) or something and i had to get a new one. I have a vista, which i know may present a problem.
