Myst: Masterpiece Edition Wont Start At All
I bought this around Christmas on gift card, and just got around to trying it out. However when I try and launch it, nothing happens whatsoever! No error messages or anything, I checked the task manager and all that happens is that it just stops running. Please help! I also have tried uninstalling and re-downloading, I run windows 7.

Not sure if you have found a solution to this yet, but I hope I can help.

Try running it in compatibility mode. Go into your documents and find the game. I think the pathway is: [whatever drive you have it on] -> Program Files [It might be Program Files (x86)] - Steam -> steamapps -> common -> Myst. That could be entirely wrong depending on where you installed it to, but basically you have to find the Myst folder. Within that folder, find the application. It should end in .exe. Right-click it and tell it to troubleshoot compatibility. If you can set it manually, try setting it to Win 98 or earlier.

I know it sounds like a bit of a pain, but it's worth it! Hopefully that will help it start up. If not, I'm not sure how to fix it. However, this is a pretty old game, so most computers nowadays need help to know how to even open it, let alone run it.

Hope this helps! Happy travels through Myst!

Try contacting Cyan support they may not know about this problem;

Disable DEP for Myst and it will run in Windows 7.
