Harry potter Harry potter and the chambe...

Specs: Windows 10 64-bit, AMD Athlon X4 750k
I recently came across my old copy of "Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets" when browsing through some things, and thought I would try it again for the good memories. The installer worked fine. Once it had installed it simply would not launch.

I found a patch here: http://fdossena.com/?p=hp2/i.frag
I did as the tutorial asked and the launcher worked, it came up as it should. I closed it to tweak the ini, all I changed was the resolution and and set textures and models high. When re-launching the game it would not work, it came up with this error: http://prntscr.com/efpesn

I have looked into it and found no fix. I have tried reinstalling the game a few times, and deleting the registries for it via regedit, no luck. Also no communicability mode fixes the issue. Here are my system specs:

Windows 10 64-bit,
AMD Athlon X4 750k @ 3.40 GHz,
Gigabyte GTX 750 ti (OC Edition),
1x 4GB 1300 MHz DDR3 Corsair Vengeance RAM,
1x 2GB 800 MHz DDR3 Kingston RAM,
120GB SSD, 450GB HDD, 1.5TB HDD.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, this game posses many great childhood memories I was looking forward to reliving. Thank you :)

✔ Best Answer
As that website seems to specialise in issues about this game I wonder if contacting Federico Dossena would be your best bet (just below where it shows the General Protection error).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Didn't see a part in that page that showed my exact issue. I changed the name of the exe and it is now working. Thanks for the help :)
