The trainer 1.42 didn't work, I always get a error :
the General protection fault!
History: GThread::OnExit() Address = 0x1487b75 (filename not found) [in c:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\borderlands\Binaries\Borderlands.exe]
GThread::OnExit() Address = 0x1486f87 (filename not found) [in c:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\borderlands\Binaries\Borderlands.exe]
I try everything, ch.dll, stats tracking is off, etc, new cache data, reboot computer, reboot steam...
The game works perfectly without the trailer, but not with... Plz hepl fast (I'm of course on STEAM legit version).
1. Check program compatibility issues with Clean Boot.
2. Check your trainer version with the program version (Version number must match).
The version of my trainer is 1.42 and the game is 1.42...
I'm on windows 7 64 bits
I've tested it by running Borderlands with the trainer, but not activating it until I've played for a little bit. Every time I activate it, the game shuts down with a GPF.
I've checked the version, and it's 1.42.0
Now, WoogieMonster is correct in that a patch was released today (9/14/2011) at 11AM CST on Steam. I actually saw it download and install, and as soon as it finished, I started running into these problems.
It's a little curious, however, that Gearbox didn't change the revision number at all. It seems like this patch is the 1.42.0 patch they wanted to release in the first place, and maybe they decided to keep the rev number the same.
Just to cover my bases, I also uninstalled the game, rebooted, reinstalled it, deleted and re-downloaded the trainer, turned off data checking, etc. Same problems.
I just wanted to report this to the powers-that-be to let them know what I've experienced and the trouble-shooting steps I took.
Thanks for listening!
1. Uninstall and reinstall nVidia's PhysX (Even if you do not have an nVidia card).
Remember to run Microsoft Update after installing these three things so that these are properly patched against malware.
3. Make sure Microsoft DirectX is fully up-to-date
4. Make sure your video card drivers are up-to-date
5. You may need to reinstall Borderlands.
Just wanted to post more results from troubleshooting. Neo7, I took your instructions and did exactly what you posted. I did the following:
1.) Uninstalled nVidia's PhysX
2.) Uninstalled all Microsoft C++ Runtimes (I had 2008 and 2005 installed)
3.) Uninstalled Borderlands
4.) Deleted my copy of the trainer.
5.) Reinstalled Microsoft C++ Runtimes 2005, 2008, and 2010
6.) Ran Windows Update to patch all of them.
8.) Reinstalled the latest version of my video driver, which includes nVidia PhysX
10.) Reinstalled Borderlands
12.) Re-downloaded and extracted the newest trainer
After doing all this, Borderlands STILL manages to crash out with a GPF error when I activate the trainer. It doesn't matter if I activate it right away, or play for 30 minutes and then activate it. The same result ensues.
Also, this happens when I create a character from scratch. Activate the trainer right away, or 30 minutes later, it doesn't make a difference. As soon as I activate it, boom.....GPF.
Unless someone else has any suggestions, I'm really thinking that Gearbox changed some stuff when they patched it.
I hope this gets resolved quickly.
