I am sorry to open a continuation to this thread but the first time I ran BGII after fixing the issue was also the only one (and I had it running for just a few minutes, since all previous crashes appeared about 4 seconds after launching the game): such crashes are now occurring.

    Check your anti-virus. The P2P update process of the launcher can be flagged as suspicious behavior and shut down or deleted - I needed to add an exception into my AV.

    Sorry to hear that @Lurtz there are some other things you can try mentioned at

    n.b. the config file has changed from an "ini" to a "lua" but the same principle applies

    In the end I resolved the situation by installing the game on a different PC and importing the whole folder with settings and saves: it all worked out and I managed to complete the game; you can close this thread. Thank you for the timely support!
