I don't know if this is specifically a Windows 10 issue, but Artemis crashes every time I switch focus away from the window/game or press a button on the keyboard. Using the mouse works fine, and I can start a game that way, but that's about all I can do.

I've tried just about everything I can think of to solve this issue, but nothing works. I've tried every compatibility mode, updated graphics drivers, disabled my second monitor, tried installing and reinstalling just about every 2.0 version, including the demo, I've shut down every process that's not necessary, but still the same result. I don't have any anti-virus software.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this. I was hoping to run a full crew game tonight, but if I can't get it working on my computer, we won't have enough computers.

For fun, I decided to debug Artemis and the exception referenced IMETIP.dll. It seems Artemis does not play well with IMEs in Windows. I switched back to the default English language input and everything is working now. Just a heads up in case anyone else runs into this issue!

I found a work around in Windows 10 , Uninstall the game and delete the game folder for Artemis, Install version 2.4 ( the last stable version of the exe )
 If you want the TNG mod, get version 2.4, the later one where all you do is extract it into the Artemis folder and you DO NOT have to run the batch file
I fired up my bridge loaded up a game and flew the ship solo with no game crashes and all my PCs are different
 Give this a try , Maybe the creators of the game can use this to debug the newer versions

I don't actually have access to the source code, but even without that you can see the stack trace, and the exception was happening with the Windows IME enabled. An IME basically allows you to input foreign characters (Japanese, Chinese, etc.) using a standard QWERTY keyboard. I'm not quite sure what the problem within Artemis is. With just the foreign language IME enabled but not active, that is still outputting regular English characters, the game will crash when you press any button. You have to completely disable the IME to be able to play the game.

OK could you instruct us as to how to do a stack trace in the Windows OS , Looks like we would have to tweak the OS and that can be touch and go for some folks
 It would be interesting to try and learn something new , For now the simple way is to go back to a known good version that worked
 Time for some R and D

Sure, but you have something like Visual Studio installed. Once the game crashes, it will give you an option to debug it instead of closing the program. Without symbols or source code, the only thing you'll really see is the stack trace. It might help you narrow down an issue, or it might not. It should at least give you the name of the offending dll.

I have what seems to be random crashes with my Microsoft Surface Pro 4. 

It almost always allows me to start the game but will crash randomly while in play. 

I also do not have any secondary language input within my list of languages (IME).

 

My Machine:
- Windows 10 version 1703 build 15063.540 (64-bit)
- Microsoft Surface Pro 4
- Intel Core i7-6650U 2.2 GHz
- 8 GB RAM

When I check Event viewer this is what I get:

Faulting application name: Artemis.exe, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x5908b3ed
