Do you mean that it crashes when you press a button on the keyboard? Or does it say your key is invalid? If it says your key is invalid please PM me your key so I can check.

Hi. I get this same error when the game tries to create the GUI.

Thanks to Maulet we've been able to figure out what was causing crashes on key presses. As suspected it was the interaction with a hotkey/macro program; for him it came with ASUS motherboard software called AI Suite II / TurboV EVO. After making sure it's no longer running (turbovhelp.exe), Pandora runs normally. I'll take a look if I can make Pandora behave with it, but until then the workaround is to make sure hotkey software, along with any associated processes in the task manager, is not running.

Thanks also go to everyone else chiming in and adding his info.

This thread is getting out of control so if you are still experiencing crashes please make a new thread with logs attached.
