I am able to start the game up and select the first tutorial and the loading bar goes to about 70-80% then I get a crash(every time without deviation).
My system idles at around 22% memory use. When I start DOW3 up it sits at 76%, this is just idling in the main game menu. Windows performance shows that the game is using just over 5Gb of ram, idle in the main game menu. I have taken all graphics to their lowest setting, the resolution on the floor, everything in the game environment down to base. I have tried the recommended "virtual memory settings back to the suggested default" process, this did not help. I have installed the latest recommended NVidia v381.89. I have done a reg clean and a restart.
