Key points

In Windows 7 and earlier, attempting to access Display settings (i.e. to change the resolution) causes the game to crash on video cards with more than approximately 1gb of VRAM.[1] Windows 8 may or may not crash. Windows 10 appears to be able to access the Display settings without crashing.
