It looks like you may be missing the OpenAL install that is described on the "Getting Started" page you referenced. I think it is listed in the Requirements section.

I have this same problem, same setup except I am running a 7900GS. I have OpenAL installed, but I receive almost exactly the same dump file. Any ideas?

I had the same problem. The solution i found on the internet:

----------------------------------
(...)

I have checked, and there is not OpenGL Threading option in the cavernous
nvidia control panel.

However, based on the clues you gave, I added the following reg key and
(cross my fingers) the thing hasn't crashed in the last 5 mins...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\{1714F987-8B2B-498D-A45A-FB2AE3436429}\0000\_Croquet.exe:Ogl_ThreadControl=dword:00000002

(For others, just swap the GUID {...} above with the one in your registry,
no need reboot)

I will report back if this is an overzealous post, but things do look
promising.

If I understand the issue properly, the new Nvidia drivers are optimized for
duo core systems (when present), but the application Croquet is not, so
there is a need to force the app to use the Ogl as if there was a single
core processor on the computer.

Heh...

Sincerely,
Jeff McNeill
