    Richard - no idea with mini dumps and what they mean, I have had them, we all have had mini dumps...

    If you get one after installing a new mod or skins or tracks then they are usually the culprit and removing them generally sorts things out.

    Also you could try finding your Steam blob files.

    Program files - Steam - find the Client regisrty.blob AND AppUpdateStats.blob

    files - and delete (perhaps you may prefer to CUT them and paste, say on your desktop) the important thing is to remove them from the Steam folder. When you open Steam these will be recreated and can cause problems if they get corroupted.

    If the problems not solved yet, you can try verifying your games files in Steam - log onto Steam and find this option (can't remember which menu in Steam it is under at the moment.

    If that all fails you could try uninstalling any mods/tracks.

    Richard, there is no point in sending minidumps to developers near you as they don't do anything with it. Its for development purposes only I believe.

    Obviously there is something wrong seeing that log you posted. Please try the following:

    1) Close Steam
    2) Go to your X:\YourGamesFolder\Steam\steamapps\YourName folder and delete the entire RACE 07 folder
    3) Restart Steam
    4) Click to start RACE 07

    All files will now decompress and you have a pure 100% clean game installation without having to download all the content again from Steam.

    Try to repeat the same steps you did when you received the error the last time. If the error is still there its not the game but most likely your PC or Steam account or one of 20000 other things that can be wrong that are at fault :D
