Ok, so when I built this box and put XP Pro on it, patched up everything, and all my stuff ran fine. Still runs fine. I have a ton of games on it, no issues but this…
Installed steam, dl HL2, fire it up and HL2.exe shows in the task list, but no visible indication it’s doing anything. So it loads up and instantly hangs. I gave up on it after about 3 days of trying - because hey, everything else works.
Last night, I decided to try Fate from wildtangent. Same deal. Fate.exe loads into the process list, and nothing further happens. So I downloaded Mojo Master because it was another game of theirs, and behold! It too loads and hangs.
I ran msconfig, disabled all my startup processes and services, and had no change. I’ve had zero instability from the machine, so no clue what’s going on. Is there some way I can follow what these executables are doing when they hang so I can trace the issue they’re having?
