Will Not Run in Windows 8 - Any Ideas
Hi All, just reloaded this in my new Windows 8 machines and keep getting error messages about no dll files and the program will not run - real bad as this is one of my favorite games.

Anybody got any ideas or is it back to my XP machine?

Thanks in advance

I recommend referring to the egosoft support forum. You may need to register your copy of X3. http://forum.egosoft.com/

Steam hubs is not tech support. I'd love to help, but all I can do is confirm that I can run it flawlessly in Windows 8.

Runs on my win 8 pro 64 bit no problems. Maybe check game integrity and the usual stuff. Windows 8 has lots of firewall blocks and admin stuff.

Try reinstalling game. I run win8 on a laptop and have zero issues.

The OP got it working a week ago. (On the 8th, ironically enough.)
