Do this for me if you will.

Go to your registry
(Start, Run, type Regedit)
And go to HKEY_Current_User > Software > Valve > Source > mm
Right click on mm and export to the desktop or somewhere where you can access it quickly. Open it with notepad, and paste whats in there here for me. Thanks.

I had problems with it running with the early Vista drivers but once the 16x.xx series drivers came out it has run without problems.

I also had this problem when playing DM on Vista. I really want to play this game. I hope developers' working on new patch...

I need to play STALKER but I'm too busy with other things. Heh.

I installed the 162.15 yesterday so I tried it with those. Ran just fine. Ran great, actually. I still get the "mm.exe has stopped working" dialog when I quit, but it runs just fine until I exit the game.

You can find those drivers here:

I'm using an Intel chipset (965) and onboard sound (Realtek) with an 8800GTS. Not sure if that makes a difference but it seems that most people with the NVIDIA chipsets are having problems running this on Vista.
