    Had the same problem, except it only crashes at one spot. When the game starts, it crashes at startup just before the main menu and goes straight to desktop with no error messages.

    After a bit of digging on the forums, someone called Leak had suggested a possible cause. And it turned out to be what was causing mine as well as others who tried it.

    Cause: Data Execution Prevention
    Solution: Turn off DEP for trl.exe

    You do this by going to 'System Properties' in 'Control Panel'. Then click the 'Advanced' tab, and under 'Performance' click 'Settings'.

    Now click the 'Data Execution Prevention' tab, click 'Help protect all programs except', and click 'Add'.

    Now find 'trl.exe' in the directory that you installed the game, and click open.

    Now apply everything and close everything and the game should work now.

    You called?

    Well, I'm glad it worked for you too...
