The game crashes quite often with 0x80000003 “A Breakpoint has been reached”
The game hangs for a few seconds, and then it goes straight to the Desktop… no error message dialog.
I view the crash code in Event View->Windows Logs->Applications.
It can happen when I simply start the game and load a level, or hours later, or not at all.
The problem seems to be saved in the save games, because when it crashes, I load up the last auto save, and it crashes again a few seconds later.
It seems like IOI left breakpoints in the code… however I believe breakpoints are only active when in Debug Mode, I doubt the EXE is a debug build so its a bit confusing. Perhaps one of the games DLL files was built in Debug configuration…
I have Visual Studio 2017 installed (but not running), maybe Windows knows VS is installed and is catching the breakpoints to pass it onto VS?
Does anyone else have VS2017 installed, and seeing 0x80000003 crashes?
