actually i am having the same problem.. and I didnt launch the trainer at all. this is the well known crash on start problem that has plagued this game since inception. I had to do some sort of rube goldberg process last time to get the game to launch.
At any rate, for those of you able to run the damn game, the trainer might still work for it.
for those of you who are like me and the game suddenly wont launch any more after the last patch, feel free to post solutions. i already tried the openAl installation twice, which hasn't done crap to help me launch the game.
you would think the developers would have done something about this by now, especially since they remastered the game. this problem occurred in the first iteration of this title.
