everyone, we have a hitherto unknown Error. Sounds like a missing soundcard, but this is pretty unlikely in a modern laptop (see below) anyway, shouldn't such a thing be intercepted?
So, does anyone have any idea what is happening here?

Exception: FMOD error:A call to a standard soundcard driver failed, which could possibly mean a bug in the driver or resources were missing or exhausted.
StackTrace:
   bei AudioSystem.FmodGameComponent.Verify(RESULT result) in C:\Users\Jasin\Documents\Xenocide SVN\XenoXNA\Dependancies\FMOD\FMOD\FmodGameComponent.cs:Zeile 319.

Of course I have gone mad with power! It would be completely ridiculous to go mad without power!
And no, this is not a quote from the Simpson's movie, I want it on paper, that I actually wrote that quite some time before the movie came out.

Trivial but important questions: Does the user have the latest sound drivers? And if yes, are they installed correctly?

pretty unlikely in a modern laptop

Why unlikely? It could be an unsupported onboard sound card, or indeed a very new one that needs to be explicitly supported.

Yes, I know, but I'm still waiting for the users response.

The user sent me a dxdiag output with no apparent problems. But he told me he did not use our installer, but the zip. Interestingly enough an installation with the installer resolved the problem.

edit: So this seems to be one more error we can get without proper runtime environment

I'm not sure what kind of videocard this is, bu anyway, if its not SM 2.0 compatible the game would intercept the error...
any ideas (besides the sondcard driver question)?

The weird Video Card name is probably the name of the Unified Driver for all these cards. Keep in mind that these chipsets are IGPs, that is, graphics-on-board :P. So, it's safe to premuse (in addition to the above links) that his graphics card is just too weak. :(

He could try installing the latest drivers for maximum(?) compatibility and improvements, but it almost surely is a hardware problem.

yea, well, I assumed the same thing, but then again, the game should intercept such problems and give an error like "f*** you you won't get in with this gfx card" ;) We discussed this a while ago, and this mechanism used to work pretty well.
So I'm guessing it can't just be the gfx hardware.
