BmGame has stopped working

My Batman: Arkahm Asylum game kept crashing on my Windows 7 64-bit operating system. It would show the BmGame has stopped working window when I launch it from Steam.

For me, the fix was to make sure that the Windows LiveID Service is running since the game depends on it.

Enabling and starting the service

PHP package dependencies for Drupal and Nginx:

Drupal, simpleSAMLphp, and InCommon Federation

Download simpleSAMLphp from their website. I am using simpleSAMLphp 1.10.

Extract it somewhere (e.g. /var/www/simplesamlphp)

My Hostigation Review

Disclaimer: I am a current and satisfied Linode customer.


I was on the hostigation $10/month plan running CentOS6. I got a virtual machine up and running fast, but things were not working smoothly like they were with Linode, and I felt uncomfortable about the security practice of emailing usernames and passwords in clear text. I got my refund within a few hours.

Outlook 2010: Cannot delete this folder. Right-click the folder, and then click Properties to check your permissions for the folder.

Make sure that the folder you are trying to delete exists nowhere else. In my case, I noticed that a folder existed in my TRASH folder. Strangely Outlook allows you to create folders with the same name, but when you go to delete it, then some name conflict or confusion happens.

VMware Workstation 8 and Unable to process CD-ROM, Insufficient permission to access the file

In my case, I could not use Remote Desktop to open VMware Workstation 8, and then try to access its virtual machine's virtual CD-ROM drive that is connected to the physical CD-ROM. I would get the error "Unable to process the CD-ROM device 'D:': Insufficient permission to access the file. Please ensure that your configuration is correct. Failed to connect virtual device scsi1:0."

Once I went to the physical machine, everything worked fine.
