[SOLVED] New PC, Windows 8 64bit. Game doesn't launch :-/
Install seemed to go fine (tried manually running the dist files afterwards too)

When attempting to launch the game (or the settings option) all I get is a new dxhr_651_crash_<time>C0.mdmp file created in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Deus Ex - Human Revolution

Does anyone have this game working on Windows 8?
Oh, and files verify fine. Running as administrator and changing compatibility do nothing.

SOLUTION (thanks mattG!):
Disable integrated onboard graphics. Either disable it in BIOS or:
1. Open windows explorer, right click on 'My Computer' and click 'Properties'.
2. Click on 'Device Manager' and look under 'Display Adapters'.
3. Disable the option that isn't your main GPU (for me it was Intel HD Graphics 4600).

It worked fine for me on win 8 x64, also works for me on win 8.1
Did you try to update all drivers, gfx card etc?

pretty sure i did...got this new computer infact 3 days ago updated with all the latest drivers

checking some more tho

Yep, ditto. New computer with all drivers updated.

Thanks for the reply though, icysoft -- good to know that some people have it working.
tntkiller Jul 16, 2013 @ 12:20am 
still not working for me..checked all drivers and stuff but no go

only thing that helped is using a older .exe that i found on the web it will run but crashes sometimes on dialogue wich is annoying... such a good game i want to play it without crashing :(

Mine also works but I bought the game before windows 8 I think. Anyhow I am playing right now running Windows 8 Pro 64 bit. I also don't have any crashes, the game runs fantastically (unlike fallout 3 which I had to do some fixes for), so I wouldn't fear too much, I am sure you'll get it working.

Perhaps it's an issue with new hardware as opposed to new OS, since tnt and me both have new computers too.

I'm running a GTX 660 and i5 4670K on a Z87 board
Maybe a Haswell issue? Maybe multicore issue?

I'm running Geforce 320.49 driver.

I'm running a GTX 770 with 320.49 driver, a Z87 board, an i5 4670K, Windows 8 and the game won't launch for me. I've tried everything suggested and still no luck. Tried contacting Square Enix and their support forms don't even work. I'll update if I manage to find a fix though.

Ok, I found a fix that works for me: disabling integrated onboard graphics.

Disabling the onboard GPU worked for me too :o Thank you very much for that :D Just remember to enable it when you're not playing the game lol

I'm still getting nothing. Drivers updated, files verified, disable Intel HD Graphics etc etc, the window for 'preparing to launch' comes up and then nothing else happens. Has this only happened to the people who got it for 85% off?
MR.XXX-HARDCORE-420-HARDCORE-XXX Jul 16, 2013 @ 9:17pm 
Same here cant play the game. Preparing to launch then nothing happens
