Call of Duty 5 : World at war Error (Unhandled exception caught)
Hi guys

My CoDWaW starts up fine but then it gives me the popular:

Error during initialization:
Unhandled exception caught

error. I have already fixed the missing .dll problem that's also common, but I'm struggling with this one. I have already set my Speakers' Properties to 24 bit, 48000Hz (Studio quality) as others requested, but that didn't work either. I have reinstalled DirectX as well. I am running this system:

Asus P5P43TD Motherboard
Intel Dual Core 2.93Ghz
500gb Hdd
GeForce 9600GT 1 Gb graphics card
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit build 7600

This is the error CoD gives me:
----- Initializing Renderer ----

----- Client Initialization Complete -----

Often it can be fixed by uninstalling then reinstalling the game

Is this is single on multi player? There are known issues with online play- may be the problem.
