Game will not start

I have played this (Steam version) before on an older PC, but on this one it will not even start. New PC with 'all the latest and best' hardware installed.

I am running Windows 8. Maybe that is the issue?

Love this game so hope I will be able to play it again.

Any tips, please?

Would be nice with a confirmation that the game does not support Win 8 64-bit, then I could let it rest in peace. Otherwise, a solution would be great :)

Thanks, that was good news.

Now hoping for a solution to why it won't start on my PC :)

My system specs are about the same as my previous PC, only higher: Intel CPU (6-core at 3,2 GHz), 32 GB memory, nVidia card (GeForce GTX 690 dual core, 4 GB memory).

Only the operating system is different: I used to have Vista 32-bit, and now I have Win 8 64-bit, so that was why I suspected the OS.

But gloany's comment indicates that's not the problem, so any tips appreciated! :)

I'm having the same problem, the game not starting, on Windows 7 x64. I launch the game. I get a black window that looks somehwat like Command Prompt. It goes away and then nothing else happens. I'ver verified the game and it verified sucessfully. Any ideas?

Launching it from "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\scratches.exe" yields the same result.

Launching it a handful of times eventually I got this error in a steam pop-up window: "Scratches: Director's Cut failed to start (error code 83)".

I know I l;aunched another game recently that had an installer that referenced "OpenAL32". Could this be the issue? I'm pretty sure it was Damnation.

I had the same problem. I figured out a fix for mine tho. Apparently AVG decided to block it as a virus so i had to allow it through that before i was able to play it. Not sure if it had something to do with the CMD prompt or what but seemed to fix the issue for me.

I launched it the next day and it started working to my suprise. My only thought is that possibly a defrag was affecting my ability to launch last time.
