Painkiller CD Fix

When attempting to launch Painkiller, some users might encounter a problem with the CD not being read properly. If the program is generating an error message similar to "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc00000142). Click on OK to terminate the application" or if the CD spins in the drive and does not launch the game, please download this file.

To install the Painkiller CD Fix, please unzip the file to a known location on your computer (i.e. Desktop, My Documents, etc.) and run the executable. This file will update the Painkiller launcher and should correct or better identify the problem that you are experiencing.

In addition, please ensure that there are no virtual drives mounted/emulated, debuggers and/or auto-update applications running.

Turn off the emulated virtual drives and close all other non-essential processes running in the background. If you do not know how to do this, please consult the Help documentation with your program or contact the program's support.

NOTE: These programs do not need to be uninstalled, but have the emulation option disabled or have their process ended before launching the game.
