Won't start in windows 8
When launching the game I get the error: failed to start game(unknown error)
I have installed the correct vc++ and even tried compatibility mode and it just wont start.
If anyone has a workaround short of dual booting I would appreciate it.

nevermind apparently the 64bit os still requires the 32bit vc++

Bought the game the moment it came out. Finally installed it this morning and it won't start for me either on Windows 7 64 bit. Steam thinks the game is running and the play timer is going up, but there is nothing. I don't even get the launcher.

Yes it sucks ♥♥♥ because its basically a lighter more secure version Windows7, runs 99% of software 7 can and has better FPS in most games....just sayin'
