    it said it met all the requirements for it but the trouble shooting guide said wht could be wrong but nothing about how to fix any of the problems it could be

    You omitted your graphics card and power supply. Sometimes, though not always, PC specs and the OS have a bearing on what we might suggest is the problem. Also, sometimes people are sure their PCs meet the minimum requirements of a given game but sometimes are wrong so it never hurts to confirm it.

    Try changing the game compatibility mode to an older operating system. This game came out before Windows 7 (or Vista for that matter) existed.

    I would recommend not playing this on your system, it has been known to cause many 'issues' with system stability, especially torrent rips.

    I also have a similar problem I installed the game fine and i can configure it from the auto run menu but when i try to press game and run it an error message pops up n says,

    Runtime Error!
    Program: C:\Program Files\LucasArts\SWKotOR2\swkotor2.exe
    abnormal program termination

    I tried removing then reinstalling but the same problem occurs

    Problem fixed just needed to manual update
