    Can't get Alpha Centauri to run. AT WIT'S END. Windows 7 x64

    I've been trying to get SMAC/X to run on my machine. It's not working and I am getting quite agitated.

    I have the Planetary Pack.
    I've tried the complete installation.
    Tried running terran.exe without the compatibility patch.
    Tried running terran.exe with the compatibility patch.
    Tried running terranx.exe without the compatibility patch.
    Tried running terranx.exe with the compatibility patch.
    Tried running the game off the latest unofficial patch. And tried original.
    Comparability modes Win9x/ME & XP
    ForceOldVoxelAlgorithm= to 0 and 1.
    DirectDraw= to 0 and 1.
    ds3d= to 0 and 1.
    eax= to 0 and 1.

    They ALL end with "terranx.exe has stopped working" crash when I try to launch.

    This problem is maddening, what can I do to make the game work?

    Event viewer error log:

    Fault bucket , type 0
    EventID 1001
    Event Name: APPCRASH
    Response: Not available
    Cab Id: 0

    Problem signature:
    P1: terranx.exe
    P3: 31313931
    P4: StackHash_5bd0
    P6: 00000000
    P7: c0000005
    P8: 02580b16

    Have you tried this : link ? I know it's for vista 32 bit, but it's not clear if you have tried it.
