I just installed Patch 1.10 and now when I click on the GRAW icon short cut the game does not start up. I tried going directly to the GRAW exe and starting it there ... still no joy.

Is anyone else having this problem?

I don't wish to offend, but you did download the correct version didn't you?

Download version is for people who got the game via Direct to Drive (Fileplanet etc)

Retail version is for the CD/DVD version.

Found the problem and fixed it !

Seems that graw patch 1.10 does not like SB audigy 2, made couple of

google search of ctdproxy.dll . And it's SB audigy 2 related.

-Disabled my SB audigy 2 card

-Turned on my onboard sound card in bios

Then my game started ...

I assume you updated your sound-drivers first, right?

When your screen goes black and nothing happens, or back to desktop, your firewall is most likely blocking the GRAW.exe again. Lucky me, my firewall pops up visible in the game and asked if I wanted to allow the game access to the internet after I installed the patches. You should give it a try. :grin1:

Edit: Nah overread that part with GRAW.exe has encounted a problem, sorry. Ignore my post. :P

Edit2: I also have the Audigy 2 (ZS) and have no problems.

i have an onboard card and have the problem. But i found a very interesting error when i tried to uninstall the game.

"The setup has detected that version 1.10.000 of GRAW is already installed.

This setup installs and earlier version of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter (1.06.000).

You will have to uninstall the previous version before installing this version"

Keep in mind this is going through add/remove programs and start/ubisoft/graw/uninstall. In other words..it wont even let me uninstall the game..

I also had the crash at start after installing patch 1.10 and I also found that if I disabled my Sound Blaster Live card (even though I was using the onboard sound anyway) the game would start. So maybe disabling you SB card is a fix for some people.

is there any fix for this yet?

I've got an audigy 2 ZS. Game works fine unpatched, but as soon as I apply any one of the patches it gets stuck on a black screen, just before the vendor/dev logos start.

It's a pretty big problem. It means I can't use any of the patches. :(
