Are you sure you downloaded the demo and not the full version? I've never had the unexpected error issue with the demo at any point. Otherwise the basics apply. Make sure you are running the game as administrator. Then try changing your DEP settings:

1. Right-click on "My Computer"
2. Select "Properties"
3. Click on the "Advanced" Tab.
4. Click on the Performance "Settings" Button
5. Click on the "Data Execution Prevention" Tab
6. Verify that "Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only" is selected. If it is not, select that option and click "APPLY" and then try and run the game.

Note: Even if you see that option checked already, go ahead and uncheck and then recheck it to ensure that its activated!

7. If the problem persists, go back and select the other option "turn on DEP for all windows programs and services EXCEPT those I select" and ADD the following files:

"runservice.exe" Will be found in C:\Windows (full version only)
"FBPB3.exe" Normally found in C:\Program Files\GDS\Fast Break Pro Basketball 3

9. Click APPLY then Reboot and then relaunch the game.

I would also try uninstalling the demo and then re-run the setup file using the run as administrator option by right clicking on the setup file.
