Possible fix to launch issue
So, here are the steps:

1. Click "Computer", then properties.

2. Click Advanced system settings.

3. Under Performance (top selection in the advanced tab), click Settings.

4. Click the Data Execution Prevention tab (on the right), and then click Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select.

5. Click "Turn on DEP for all programs and services except"

6. Click ADD and then navigate to your Steam folder. goto Steamapps, Common, Port Royale 2

7. Add all the executible files other than the uninstalls.

8. set compatibility mode to 98/ME

Relaunch Port Royale 2 and rejoice!

Duh. I have to say that I did not. and I do feel more than a little sheepish about it. My apologies to you. You had every right to bring me up short. Just as I earned it.

Sadly this fix did not work for me. SPECS: Win 8.1, 64 bit, integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics adapter.
1. Disabled DEP for the 3 .exe files in the Steam folder, reboot laptop,
2. Set compatibility to Win 98/Me for the same 3 exe files,
3. Ran as admin (tried with this setting on and off)

Symptom is the process starts but no game screen displays.

These steps have helped others so if you're struggling you should try them. But if they don't work you're not alone. C'est la vie.
