Is the game crashing in Windows 7 64bit Quadcore for anyone?

The game keeps crashing when I go to car selection or when the road starts loading. I have changed the graphical settings to lower spec just to see if it works and it doesn't. It keeps giving me the "Windows encountered an error" message after crash.

I have tried everything. I saw in some websites that the crashes were happening due to a problem with Quadcore and they told to change the process affinity from 4 to primary 2. I tried that. Some said to change the compatibility to Windows XP SP3. I did that. I updated both my Nvidia driver and DirectX 11 to the latest.

Any advice?

No, seriously, it does. i7 + Windows 7 x64 user.

I have only played a handful of races but i can confirm that i have not had any ctd's, freezes or whatsoever when playing the game.

I cannot guarantee anything, but it's well worth the try. Good luck mate.

I have Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, an AMD 940 quad core (which is overclocked to 3.5ghz), and haven't had any problems.

The problem has been mentioned for Quadcore. Specifically Core 2 quad q6600 2.4Ghz. i7 don't seem to have any problems with this.

@Jieman1: The link you have shared has a person called "JINKSM" who has almost the same machine as me (different graphic card versions and my OS is x64) and has the exact same problem. I guess I have to wait for a patch. So annoying to have a game pre-ordered and not able to play. Should wait from buying early next time around.
