Game crashing often

Does anyone know what could be the reason for Mahjong to keep crashing all the time.
Sometimes when I boot it up, sometimes I can play one level of Motion then after i beat it it crashes, I cannot even start any other mode because it crashes.
I don't play it full screen.

If someone could give any suggestions, because I don't wanna deal with Microsoft support.

Start the game from the Games for Windows Live Launcher and not by its own exe! And as you already said, don't play it fullscreen. That were the two reason for me, why it crashed. Doesn't crash anymore now.

I never played fullscreen, as I read about the issue.
I'll try your advice tomorrow, I'll report back with the result.
Thank you.

Well, that didn't work.
I tried uninstalling, deleting saves, reloading directx and net framework, it just crashes.
It loads up:
- I choose Infinity - crashes right away
- I choose tales - starts a story about a boy then crashes
- I choose Motion - lets me beat one level, then crashes, when I restart I get the same level again

Well, that was a waste of my money, but you learn as long as you live.

I'm just pissed that I got 1 achievement, so I can't delete the game from my profile.

I was having the same problem with the game crashing after start up and I found a way to fix it but it's kinda extreme.

I recently had a bad virus on my computer, ended up have to do an entire recovery of the computer using the recovery disks. I did the recovery and re-downloaded all the games I had for Windows Live. Like most of you I had set the Mahjong Wisdom options to full screen and the game was freezing from that.

Anyways re-downloaded the games and can play it now. Earned my first achievement in it today. By doing the recovery I am guessing somehow it fixed whatever settings on my computer that needed to be fixed?

I don't know why this worked or if it will work for you but it's an idea. I also noticed that whenever I have something else running in the background, weather its an open internet browser or whatever the game crashes more often. Anybody else have that problem?

Good luck
