I recently installed KOTOR on my Laptop (Vista Business 32 Bit), when I try to start the game, it always ends up saying: Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has stopped working.

When I look at the error details, it says this (PS. I tried updating the game to the latest version and ran the game and setup in XP compatability):

KotOR and vista don't really get along well. I'm not sure if there is a way to fix it, but my KotORII does it, and I just keep trying to run it; eventually it works.

Correction to above poster: NOTHING works on Vista. I'd suggest right clicking the shortcut, then selecting "Run as Administrator".

For KotOR I, I set it to Compatibility Mode for XP Service Pack 2 and Run as Administrator and I haven't had a single problem with it since. KotOR 2 is trickier... I had to install a hacked .dll to get it to work every time. You can make it work on Vista... It's just more of a pain in the rear than it should be.
