Wow Crashing
Posted 2007-05-06 03:11
Ok, to start, I'm fairly new to this and looking for some help.  I installed Ubuntu today and got Crossover to run WoW.  When I launch it, it gives me the Launch Window and when I click Play, it crashes.  I've been looking through the forums, but can't pinpoint what's causing the issue.  I get the following error:

This application has encountered a critical error:

ERROR #132 (0x85100084) Fatal Exception
Program: C:\World of Warcraft\WoW.exe
Exception: 0xC0000005 (ACCESS_VIOLATION) at 0023:0040E000

The instruction at "0x0040E000" referenced memory at "0x00000000".
The memory could not be "read".

WoWBuild: 6080

I'm running on an AMD dual 64 bit process.  Any help on pinpointing this would be great.  If you need any more information, please ask.  Thanks.

Well, actually, I figured out what was going on with it.  I found that it couldn't access for some reason the update request after installing Burning Crusade.  If you install WoW first, update it, then install BC, it works.  Now, just trying to figure out how to window it.  So, I guess that's my next request for assistance.

Edit: Ok, got it windowed out, but the performance is horrible, any thoughts on this?

Performance in windowed mode should not be drastically different from full screen mode unless you are running Compiz or Beryl.
