Only black screen after start
After the start, I only see a small black window. I tried all combinations of settings in the AoWSMSetup.exe, but no change at all. For some reason the display mode is always "Window".
I tried the Compatibility mode too.

I have Windows 8 64bit and a NVidia GTX680 with the newest drivers.

Any ideas?

I have the same problem... black screen immediately after startup, spins the CPU, but nothing happens. I tried disabling D3D among myriads of other suggestions I could find online. Nothing changes. Help?

Did you ever fix this? I'm getting the same problem.

I had a similar problem with Windows 10, I ran registry cleaner with Ccleaner program and it began to work just fine.
