Try to verify your game cache integrity (if you don't know how, just ask). Also, try minimizing Steam to the tray, and then use your desktop icon for Beyond Divinity.

Also, try different compatibility modes with the div.exe - like Win 98/Me - and run in administrator mode as well.

If you need help with anything that I have suggested, just ask.

Hi, first thx for answer.
I tried to minimize Steam, tryed all Comp modes and Admin mode and i start the Game from a Virtuell Win XP PC. Nothing happens.
And checking the game cache says, 4 Parts will downloaded new.
But the Game is not starting ....

Check if there are files called debug.lst or error.txt in the 'Beyond Divinity' install folder. If so, the error message(s) may give a clue what the problem is.

If you haven't tried already, run the configuration program and switch the game to Software mode rather than Direct3D.

If you re-check the game cache, is it fine now?

I found no debug or error File in the Folder.
After every Start, 3 Files will found after recheck the Game Files.
Steam downloaded init.cfg, sinfo.000 and config.div new.

In the confi Programm i can´t change Software Mode. Only resolution, Fsaa and Fog.
I tried all configurations with all Resolutions. No Start T_T

Sorry, you are right; I must have been thinking of the disk version configuration program.

In Windows Explorer, you can browse to the '..\Beyond Divinity\Static' folder, and rename the 'intro.mpg' file, if you wish to skip it on startup (though that may not make a difference with the crashing, depending where in the startup process it happens).

When installing the game did you install/update DirectX 9c when prompted (assuming you were asked)?

You could try updating the MS Visual C++ Redistributable files (through Windows Update, or downloaded them here[]).

In the 'Beyond Divinity' folder, try deleting (or moving) the config.div, init.cfg and sinfo.000 files, then run the configuration program (as administrator), set the resolution, test and save, then try starting the game.

With the disk version of the game, a couple people had a problem crashing on startup when creating the configuration files, but if the files already existed the game loaded fine. If you want to try, here is a link to download my configuration files[]. Extract the zip file into the Beyond Divinity folder and try starting the game. You can edit the config.div file in Notepad first to change the resolution (set for 1600x900).

so, i try to start from another PC ( because i´m not at home atm ) and it works.

When i coming Home i will Update MS Visual, maybe this is the reason.
I hope so.
