I Know many have this problem and some claimed to solve it. But i've tried everything on this thread so far and even on other forums:
Compatibilty to both .exe files were set to WIN XP SP 2
I tried numerous dll files and it still doesen't work.

It is most likely i'm doing something wrong i guess...

So, can anyone help me please? Thanks.

Your game doesn't appear to have been patched. Do you have the US version?

At my wits end with this game. Tried for years to get it to work. Finally got a job and able to buy it, but it seems not even a legal copy will work. I've followed all the steps and it seems to run just fine, until after the opening scene where it shows the wrecked Ebon Hawk flying towards the station when the gameplay starts. I immediately get error saying that swkotor2.exe has stopped working. I'm running on a Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 32-bit. Here's my hardware scan.

I Reinstalled the whole thing. Patched it (US version - 4cds!) and it still doesen't work.

Same problems: When you choose a new charachter and press play the game crashes after intro.

So, I got mine working! I feel so stupid now, it was there in the instructions.

Prophet_Sage, I don't know if it will work for you or you've tried it, but reread step 9. Particularly the bottom part:

"If the game still crashes right after character creation after completing the installation, try using the the original .exe instead of the one from SecuROM. If that doesn't work, there is a link in Step #6 that will allow you to contact SecuROM and request a new .exe." - Q

I used the original .exe and it's working fine now ^_^

Best of luck

OK, I suspect that your game is not the US version. Reinstall the game from scratch and start over. Sorry about that.

Before patching or anything else, go into your game folder, right-click on swkotor2.exe, select "properties" then "details" and look for "language". I'm pretty sure that this is how you check which version you have.

If it is the UK version, you'll have to apply two patches; 1.0a, then 1.0b.

Q is most likely right, I'm not a computer guru nor a KotOR expert. Far from it. But, I'll fill your request anyways just to eliminate every possible solution

Here is a link to my freshly uploaded .exe

I have an Us version (it says my language is English (USA)). I trued patching it with those two files but it didn't work.
I wrote to SecuRom, but it's seems to be a dead end, since they wont me uninstall deamon tools and simular programs which they claim is interfearing with KOTOR2... bull****.
Well i trued everything and I just think it wont work for me i guess...
I've even tried the cracks on the internet and now i have 5 different exe's in my swkotors2 directory and neither of them works.

I'm giving up i guess.

^^^^ Pay attention and read the thread, or pay the price!!!!

You said you have a US version, yet you went ahead and tried patching with the UK patches....

Nuke your installation. Reinstall according to directions. Actually read them.

The game wasn't properly patched in the first place, so that's probably why the SecuROM-updated .exe wouldn't work. That particular .exe was the only one that I could get to work on my laptop which has an Intel chipset. Others have had success using the original .exe from the patched game and not the SecuROM one. None of the no-cd cracks could get me past the first movie, so the widescreen mod was out of the question. As a matter of fact, I've said as much (in big, bold, red letters) in post #2.

I'll try reinstalling it and patching it again... But I allready did that! Maybe it works this time.

Kotor still locking up w Vista

Found this forum after my Kotor game (Best of PC) locked up. The game loaded and started fine, but when I got the Swoop Platform races in order to free Bastilla, the game locked up when loading the next area (approx 75% load). I have uninstalled and reinstalled, changed the dll file, installed and ran w XP service pack 2 and as an admin, plus did the shortcut to the startup.exe in admin, and it still locks up in the same place. Tried to disable vertex buffer objects, but the file will not let me change or add anything. Think it's time to finally give up, which sucks because Kotor was the game I wanted to play the most in the pack. ANYONE have any other suggestions? Also, when I do a system check, it indicates that drive Q is empty and fails. Odd because as far as I know, there is no drive Q. Help!

^ The file will not let you change anything.

This is because you did not follow the instructions in the post I linked to, directly above and just shortly before yours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You need to have administrator privileges, you need to have made all of the folders as writeable...... Please, please take a look at the link I provided!

^ I followed instructions to the letter w/ admin priveleges and made all of the folders writeable per the instructions in your link(s). Even did it multiple times and still can't do anything w/ the file. BTW, I looked at this entire thread and tried pretty much everything and still end up with the same problem (locking up at Swoop Platform). A problem could be that I have Vista 64-bit. Thanks for assistance, but still think it's not going to work

Did you follow step 8 in post #2?


"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."

Yes I tried step 8 but don't think my link was correct. The game is in a different location on my computer and I'm not sure how to correctly write the link. Here is where it's located now:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic\LaunchKOTOR.exe"

If it is, then the shortcut's target should look like this:
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /C start "SWKOTOR" /D "C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\SWKotOR" /high /affinity 1 "C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\SWKotOR\swkotor.exe"

Tried your new link and it didn't work, so I changed the link to where things were in longhand (why it's on my computer like that I have no idea) and it started the game like it should. Unfortunately, it still locked up in the same spot (about 75% when loading the Swoop platform to rescue Bastilla). Here's the new link:

C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /C start "Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic" /D "C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic" /high /affinity 1 "C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic\swkotor.exe"

Any other suggestions or is it time to give up?

1) Have you tried going back to an earlier save than the one you're using?

2) Is there a folder in your game folder marked "compatibility files"?

Went back to earlier save and it still locks at the same place. there isn't a folder marked compatability files. Think I'm probably out of options

Let me take a look under the hood. Try using the game's configuration utility to post your system specs:

  • If you're using Vista or Windows 7, go into your game folder, find "launcher.exe" and right-click on it. Select "properties", then "compatibility" and check the box beside "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and select "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)". Then check the box next to "Run this program administrator" and hit "OK". (EDIT by Q)
  • Bring up the launcher menu for Kotor 1 or 2 (by running "launcher.exe").
  • Click on "Configure".
  • Click the "Scan Hardware" button on the lower center of the window.
  • Click "Yes" to continue.
  • Click "Details" to view your system specs.
  • Click "Save Report" and save the file to your desktop.
  • Whenever you post your problem, open the file you just saved and copy and paste the contents to your post.
You can leave out the keymapping and everything after that. Also, please specify which version of Windows you are using because the game can't ID anything newer than XP.

Here you go. Hope this helps. I suppose I could delete my saved games and start over, again, but doubt that will change anything. Any ideas on how I can possibly skip ahead of where it locks up?

Still not understanding why it won't let you add entries to the .ini file. Have you tried removing the read-only properties from just that file?

Also, I've noticed that you have ATI graphics. Have you had any graphics-related problems?

Lastly, are you using any mods?

Read only properties have been removed. Still no luck adding entries. Had/have no graphics problems. Everything I've played has worked fine. Don't think I'm using any mods, nor do I know what they are.

Which version are you using? Stand-alone disk? Best of PC? Steam?

Well, that explains the weird installation directory.

This is just bizarre, though. I can't figure out why it's locking up in the middle of loading like that when it's been running fine up until then.

Have you tried installing the game on a different computer and seeing if your save will work on it?

Sorry to have mis-judged your preparations Lando. I was a bit of a chippy jerk, in retrospect.

I can confirm, Q, that that is the normal install directory for BoPC K1, in case you want to amend your guide.

Forgive me for asking if I have missed it, but have you tried going to the most basic graphics for the scene?

Also, please look in your <YourName> main folder on your PC, and also in your C:\ drive for
the "compatibility files"... I seem to recall when I had vista for a moment that an edited .ini can end up in strange places.

Did you try using the original swkotor2.exe from the patch instead of the one that's been updated by SecuROM?

Yes. And still no luck. I'm not sure it's something related to the exe file. I got it to work on an old desktop computer with a 64mb RAM nVidia card, but not on this laptop.
