Crashing on Launch..

A Forum Thread for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Okay, so I had a shit ton of mods, some working and some not, so I decided to reinstall Oblivion, something that I have done many times before without any issues. Not this time.. Okay, So I uninstalled oblivion, and deleted all the mod files and such from the Bethesda Softworks folder and reinstalled Oblivion. When I clicked on the "play" button, it launched, and then immediately crashed. Okay.. So that pissed me off extremely, because I have had this happen before, but then reinstalled again, and it worked. Again, not this time.. I have now reinstalled the game upwards of 20+ times, and every time, the same thing happens. It crashes when it launches. It is really really starting to piss me off.. If you have any ideas as to what the hell is wrong, and how to fix it, they would be greatly appreciated. Edit: Something happened with the last install, now every time I run the setup.exe it asks me if I want to remove Oblivion completely. Well.. It is already removed.. I haven't tried restarting my computer yet, Because I don't want to right now. I would rather get a solution to the crashing problem before installing it again.

    Oh man. Thats not a rare thing. You'd better ask it here: Bethesda Forums They will help you the same like they helped me. I got no CTD oversince.

    By the sounds of it, their are probably still files on your computer associated with oblivion, you need to find these and delete them, it is making your computer think it is still installed and are causing the problems.

  • Have you deleted the files in the My Documents\My Games\Oblivion path? Sometimes they don't get deleted with the game.

    Okay, I will try there.. What does CTD stand for? I have seen it somewhere before when reading about the game crashing. EDIT: Nevermind about what ctd means.. I'm stupid, and figured it out on my own just while thinking about it. EDIT: Fucking epic, thanks a shit ton for that link, found a thread on there that solved my problem. I love you.
