"TOWER has stopped working" message on Vista


Recommended Posts

Recently installed and uninstalled TOWER 2011 on Windows Vista several times to only get the message constantly when I attempt to start the program.  I attempt to run the program as an administrator but it does not help.  The message says "Tower has stopped working".

Here are my system specifics requested and the tower.log file information.

It is located on your graphics card is too weak for the game.

Mine is an NVIDIA graphics card with 2048 MB of RAM. Since it runs without any problems not with 128MB which is too weak and therefore can not work also.
