I recently acquired a level editor program for a video game called The Thing (PC) and whenever I open the exe the file immediately crashes upon clicking it. So I downloaded OllyDBG to try and figure out what the problem is. When I open the exe file for the editor in OllyDBG it immediately jumps to the offset which seems to be causing the crashing.

I can't seem to figure out what any of this stuff really means, so maybe an expert with ASM knowledge can help me out? I provided some screenshots.

Try launching it in compatibility mode and if that doesn't work try to contact the author of the file.

You have landed inside a bunch of zeroes.
This indicates that the application tried to load binary code from some file, failed to do so, and didn't check for error.
Probably you are missing a file, or the path is wrong.
