    I've updated to the latest version, latest drivers. done a reinstall etc. rFactor crashes as soon as i got to load a track.
    edit: I'm running windows 7 64 bit, 4 gigs of ram, a p55 based motherboard and a 5870.

    it is a downloaded map??
    if tats the case, you probably have not put the folder in proper directory..
    coz if it doesn't follow the structure.. the game will crash..

    I turn uac off soon as i reinstall windows 7. Even with it off i ran as admin and no luck.
    It's installed to: G:\Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor\

    As soon as i hit launch when i chose a track, it just crashes to the desktop. googling has people who have similar issues but so far no fix.

    i suggest you try download a map from rfactorcentral.. place it in game folder exactly as the extracted file..
    i have had this issue, but it was due to UAC and administrator right.. and sometimes if the file structures of the maps are not right, the game just crashes..

    why would it install all of the tracks wrong? installing a Track didn't help either.

    Is it just me being a twit but when did they start doing Rfactor on steam? just thinking that might be what is doing it. have you got the disk and if so try doing a normal install of Rfactor on the c: drive see if that helps

    See that might be what it is mate you should try making an install just as the rfactor game and see if it still does it

    Just been having a look around the net and found this that some said got there's working.

    Try to switch off the AERO in Windows 7.

    See if that helps at all.

    Also look at your rfactor config and have a look at your direct x setting some people are saying there's issetting it self to 7 when it is ment to be 9.

    yeah it's already at dx9, i was hoping i could ini force it, as i've had to do that with some games before. going to windows 7 basic theme doesn't work either.
