I'm also getting a GPF error when running the latest trainer.
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.
i got another update this morning, and now the new trainer doesn't work......was working yesterday......i freaking hate these idiots......had a perfectly working 1.41 game without issues.....Flawlesswidescreen was running perfectly fine too.....now it studders when on, and the trainer doesn't work.....nothing but crashes......instead of adding multi-monitor support, and maybe AA option, they came out with this crap that contributes zero to all who play.....or should i say "not playing now" this game
Hey all! 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. 7.) Rebooted 8.) Reinstalled the latest version of my video driver, which includes nVidia PhysX 9.) Rebooted 10.) Reinstalled Borderlands 11.) Rebooted 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.
