Default The longest Journey from the Shop Problems Crashing. I bough the longest journey from the shop (downloaded it and installed it) Vista Home premium video card is nvidia geforce 8600M gt

I am at the point in the academy and it goes into the movie of her painting. When it finishes it kicks me out and tells me Windows is trying to find a fix for the problem then it just says it can't and I have to close the program. I went out to find a patch and found them for the 2 disc and 4 disc versions but this was the online version from the shop so I didn't think they would help. There isn't a patch listed in the shop so I went ahead and tried the 2 disc version but it didn't help. Please help me figure this out. I'd hate to have bought something that I don't get to play

This game is known for it's crashes...
I didn't find a solution myself... I just used savegames.
Don't remember where I found them.

Default Longest Journey Crash

I've just bought and downloaded the longest journey and it's crashing in the exact same spot.

Same OS and Video card. Did you find an answer?

Try hitting the ESC key during the movie sequences before they end. That should do the trick.

I just had this problem the other day and found a solution in the Longest Journey website forums.
Here is the link to the post on that forum - you will need to download a replacement file for the painting cutscene (the file is damaged, I guess).

(You can use the escape option but then you lose a conversation right after the cut scene with April's best friend.)
