WillowTree# causes blue screen of death


  • Anonymous

    Whenever I attempt to start willowtree#, a blue screen of death is caused. I have a report on the crash:

    I don't know what happened. I had tried this on an alternate computer and wanted to transfer to my laptop to do a little modding and it caused the error. Any help would be appreciated.

    Applications cannot cause blue screen errors.  They are caused by incorrect or corrupt hardware drivers, buggy hardware drivers, or hardware failures.  WillowTree# does not install any new drivers on your system so it should not be the source of the issue, but it may be revealing a driver or hardware issue that you were not previously aware of.

    Any time you have blue screen errors I would advise you to start with a RAM test to make sure your RAM isn't bad.

    Fastfat.sys is the file system driver to access the FAT filesystem.  That is the filesystem used on USB flash drives or floppy drives, but probably not on your hard drive since all versions of Windows made in the last ten years use NTFS by default for the filesystem instead of FAT.  You may try to copy your savegame from the USB drive to the hard drive of your laptop before running WillowTree# and see if that can work around the problem.

    If you are trying to open an Xbox 360 savegame directly from the USB drive, be aware that you cannot do that.  The filesystem that the Xbox 360 uses is different from Windows, so you need to use a program like Horizon, Modio, USB XTAF Explorer, or Le Fluffie to extract the savegame file (Save0001.sav) from the USB drive and to put it back onto the USB drive afterwards.
