I recently bought a game off steam, but whenever I try to start the game both through steam or my desktop it instantly comes up with a message saying oops! The game crashed crash report ........ Can be found next to the executable.... Send to the game producer or something like that, it's a pretty old computer running windows xp, but I just can't figure out why it won't work! Help

Hi and welcome to FpcH

We are not gamers here - but we will try to help :)

What is the game that you are trying to play ?

Does your version of XP have SP3 on it ?

Hi, thanks

i bought ksp for about £20 I'm new to PC and this is my first time downloading a game, I'm not sure what sp3 is😥 I've tried launching it on steam and from my computer but it crashes instantly, I've tried changing the compatability and it still won't work, however I installed the same game on my laptop and it works fine ( that's running windows 7) it's not a gaming laptop and the quality of game isn't great, there must be a way to get it working on my pc😕
