Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit
i think the steam version has updated, the game crashes with me too, the .exe now appears as a 126.96.36.199 version
no CTD here, possible your AV/security software is intercepting the trainer, but it does work fine. check your Event logs under Admin Tools in the Control Panel, any RED x's in the application log will indicate what crashed and why.
First right click on the trainer and go to properties. In compatibility mode set run as administrator.
Do not start the trainer at this time.
Start Steam, then start the the game. Once the game is started and at the main menu, press alt+tab to go to your desktop. (A folder or another program like a web browser must be open.)
Start the training telling yes/ok when asking if you want to run.
Wait for trainer to say game found.
Click on your game at the bottom of the screen, or press alt+tab until back at the game.
That is how I get it to work.
Running the latest trainer steam version .
windows 7 ultimate 64 bit
Win 7 x64 Ultimate SP1
Latest Patch: #5 (188.8.131.52)
I play offline, not online.
It wouldn't surprise me if the game senses the trainer and forcefully kills itself. I use the activation "fix".
