The Witcher: Enhanced Edition

The Witcher: Enhanced Edition

I've just bought the game and installed it but it's impossible to launch. I've tried many things you guys usually reccomend but they didn't work (checking the game's cache, reboot, trying the no-min requirements stuff, etc...).

I have some other steam games with the same problem but normally they launch when using the .exe icons in the game folder located in the steamapps folder. This one not. Also tried to start the game via the editor, but it doesn't pass the first "loading" screen: the game returns to the main menu.

Running Windows 7 ultimate, btw

Any help would be much appreciated :(

I have a Mac with OS X Mavericks. Doesn't run at all. Click play > blank screen > back to Steam.

+1, MBA Mavericks

For Mac users, this seems to be the solution:

(Haven't tried it myself yet)

Have you tried to run the game in compatability mode? I cant remember how to do it but it fixed Fable-Lost chapters for me.

I've been having this problem too; I go to launch the game and nothing happens. My computer meets the system requirements (as I'm able to play The Witcher 2 perfectly fine), but for some reason it refuses to launch.

Specs (if it helps):
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1045T Processor (6 CPUs), ~2.7GHz
8gb of RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti

I've tried:
- Verifying game cache
- Reinstalling
- Compatibility mode
- Restarting my computer
- Putting "-dontForceMinReqs" into launch options
- Updating my drivers
- Running with admin privileges (both Steam and the .exe)

Does not work. Probably why it was so cheap!

Works for me. :spycon:
@ThePacificNick:I have tried it on Mac OS X 10.9.1 with no luck. The free weekend worked fine, but when I bought it it gives me the same problem as you.
@Friendly Neighborhood Comrade: I hate you so much right now!

I am also having the same problem on Mac OS X 10.9.1. My screen goes black like it is about to start, but then it crashes and goes back to steam. When I try opening it again it says the game is running, but it isn't. Theat keeps repeating every time I try to launch the game.

I didn't say but I'm running windows 7 64 bits
and my minimum specs couldn't be a problem. I'm far ahead.
