Hello guys and gals,
I would like to suggest a solution for this dreaded problem.
After trying out several suggestions found on forum and the internet, the game could start in German language, since I do not speak German, that was a no go to me.
I got quite frustrated, tried rebooting and waiting like crazy for the game to verify files...
Little fast forward, I tried changing formatting settings since game worked in German but not English and viola, success, tho I still have troubles running game in 64bit mode, that's another thing.
**NOTE: I am using Win
