Right, I didn't even think about that. Someone on the GOG forums had the same problem and solved it by running the game as admin.

DEP is not the problem it didn't change my sound crash problem and the game still only runs if i disable it in the flux.ini file as for saving it seems to be a odd deal i got everything set on XP compatibility but it still does the same thing where it boots up as admin goes basic theme i get a black screen flash for a half second watched my process manager i see loader.exe and then it disappears a half second later going back to my normal windows theme with the same flux error report every single time where it errors on the sound and force closes the game.

Note that i have set every single exe ran as admin and XP just to make sure the game is installed on my D games drive windows 7 is installed on C with only my hardware related software and work programs.

Where exactly did you install the game? Normally, it would be placed in c:/GOG Games.

The games saves are in a folder called "saves" in the game directory.

Other people are popping up on Steam and GOG with this issue now:

I really think this is a problem with a third-party program, because I can confirm that the game saves fine on Windows 7.
