Game will not start
Greetings.

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?

*bump*

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.
Do not have an answer for you, but i AM running windows 8 and I'm able to play the game :)

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.
