Tropico 3 Crash on Start – Fix

A fix for all the people who can’t find a solution to the terribly picky game Tropico 3. I love the game, but had a terrible time getting it to work after a crash. The solution you’re looking for with a Tropico 3 that crashes on start is in the registry. Even one corrupt registry entry in windows (particularly 7, and vista) is enough to derail Tropico 3’s load routine. You need a registry cleaner. I grabbed one from cnet downloads for free. Use the uninstall program from windows instead of from kalypso (the makers of Tropico 3). Then rune the registry cleaner. Reinstall Tropico 3.

btw Still play the original occasionally. Great game.
