Hl2.exe error when starting gmod

  • Processor - AMD Athlon 64 Dual Core
  • RAM - 2GB
  • Graphics Card - Nvidia 8500 GT
  • Operating System - XP 32 bit

When ever I launch gmod, It starts to load but then after a little bit it crashes and gives me an error,

When I look at the error report it holds this as responsible for the crash C:\DOCUME~1\Marine\LOCALS~1\Temp\7138_appcompat.txt

I’ve tried to delete the file, see if another program would replace it but no luck. It just comes back.

Any idea what it could be?

Anybody? :< I could use some help.

You pirated the game. Buy it.

No I didn’t I payed friggin’ 10$ for it from steam, and I dought they sell their own pirated games.
