View Full Version : Won't even start

I have had UT2003 for quite a while but only recently has it stopped working. I put the CD in the drive, press play and then a message appears saying an error has occured in UT2003.exe and needs to close. I have tried re-installing the game and have the latest patch and graphics cards drivers.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

I have the same exact problem except I've never played the game, I just bought it today, installed it and as soon as I launch it I get those error reports.
I have a decent system too.

The strange thing is, it used to be fine on Windows ME, but when I try to run it in compatibility mode, it has the same error. G4Xtreme, you even tried re installing Windows? And it still didn't work?!:eek: It looks as if it is only a small problem though as no one else has said anything
I have contacted the tech support line via email and they have tried numerous things but nothing has helped
Has anyone else had this problem and found out a way to fix it?

At last! after a week of trying I found out that the problem was all down to a stupid virus called PE PARITE . B
or PE PARITE . A
If you have the same probelm I sugest doing a virus scan with some sort of software. A good site is
This is a free antivirus program and is pretty good

I find it hard to believe that the problem is related to a virus for most of us, as I have just formatted my pc and I get this problem.
I have found a semi-fix. I install the new patch before I want to play (after every reboot) then run it in safe mode. Then quit safe mode and start it up normall. This has a 60% success rate for me.
