Clicking play in the launcher results in the game crashing without any error report
Basically what the title says: I have installed Skyrim, I can launch it via steam, the Launcher pops up, hardware diagnosis runs and then, on clicking play the Launcher silently crashes without so much as an error report.
I have not installed any mods whatsoever. Any suggestions? I''m re-installing right now.

I'm having the same issue...
Some people fixed it by changing shadow graphics to low. For me it didn't work though.

Try re-installing game drivers and your video card's drivers.

Delete the 2 .ini files in Documents\My Games\Skyrim and try again

Isn't this the old stereo settings issue from way back when the game released?

14. Crash right after loading Skyrim: This is another sound issue. To fix it, try setting your audio quality to 16 bit, 44100 hz.

Nothing has worked for me so far. But I do appreciate your input!

Same here. Any other suggestions? Skyrim suddenly stopped working although I didn't change anything, neither on my pc nor the game itself!

I've now tried several different things, including moving the Steam Files and re-installing Steam itself. Unless there are any other suggestions I'm going to re-install Windows tomorrow.

Now it works. I'm still curious why it didn't work properly in the first place though.
