ghost recon.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close
Posted 31 March 2012 - 02:07 PM
First it did not allowed me to install it, so I followed the instructions in this topic: http://www.ghostreco...?showtopic=5564 .
Finally managed to install it with Island Thunder, but when I try to start it, I get this error: "ghost recon.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close"
And that's it, have no idea what to do...

Sometimes it can be caused by the intro videos of the game.
If you have an options.xml in:
Program Files\Red Storm Entertainment\Ghost Recon
go to this line:
and change TRUE to FALSE.
Sometimes there will be no options.xml because it is only written on successful launch the first time the game is played.
In this case download:
My options.xml link (goes in Program Files\Red Storm Entertainment\Ghost Recon)
and see if that allows the game to start.
Here's another stickied link on:

EDIT: Just tried what you suggested, downloaded and placed the options.xml, nothing worked, it's in FALSE, still receive the same error when I start the game.

The game is setting the options back to default which means ShowIntro is Reverted back to TRUE rather than FALSE

About the latest install of Ghost Recon:
-Is the expansion pack Desert Siege installed along with the Island Thunder expansion?
-What patches have been applied?
-Is this a download version for example from Steam. If not Is it being installed with a Gold Pack containing all the expansions. Or three separate discs; one for GR, Desert Siege, and Island Thunder?

Maybe the issue is something to do with just IT installed and not DS? I've never tried that.

Looks like you are missing desert siege. This contains patch 1.3 content. If you do not have this, then you must install patch 1.3 before patch 1.4.
Looks like you will need to do a clean uninstall, and start again. Pls let us know it is the problem.
