Okay so the game is crashing because it can't get a list of resolutions from your graphics card. That may be tough to fix quickly so I'm glad you have a workaround.
As a side note, are you playing the game at 1366x768? If so I don't think you'll be able to see the whole station menu: the buttons to repair your ship and sell your cargo will be cut off. If your computer doesn't support a higher resolution I'll have to figure out how to make the station menu smaller so you can see all of the options. This may take me a day or two.
Thank you for your patience and for buying the game!
