When I try to run Guitar Hero 3 for PC, GH3.exe will show up in the Task Manager, but the game does not launch. Until about 3 days ago, it was working fine. What's going on?
After enjoying playing Guitar Hero 3 for months on my PC (the lag issues eventually settled down), the game no longer works. GH: Aerosmith still works perfectly.
Clicking on the shortcut, opening it from it's actual location, and trying to get it to auto-launch by reinserting the DVD all result in the same thing: GH3.exe will show in the task manager, but the game itself will not launch.
I have gone through about 6 uninstall/reinstalls, with the same result each time. Another interesting piece of information: I downloaded the 1.3 patch from Aspyr and when I run it it tells me that GH3 is not installed on my machine.
I have a Dell XPS420 straight out of the retail box that was purchased last November. It's running Vista; I'm assuming the 32 bit version. Up until I got this machine, I was a Mac person, so I don't know much about how to get other specs - if you need them to help, I will gladly oblige if you tell me how to find them.
The only thing I could find on this issue online was at AMD Game Forums
but it didn't seem to be resolved.
Any help you can provide would be awesome. Thanks much.
