Skryrim will not run on Windows 8
Can anyone send a suggestion?
I've exhausted all the stuff found ... kept getting hung at Directx check, deleted the vdf file
Get to the Skyrim start screen: Play/Options/etc.

Can go into options ... only basic video choices there

When I click run ... closes

Any ideas?

thanks in advance

that just isnt true , win8 runs games fine , i really dont like the ui of win8 but it hasnt given me any trouble with games
the op has a problem with dx , op needs to update dx with the webinstaller at microsoft downloads , c++2005,2008 ,2010 ,might need to be updated . .netframework 3.5,4,4.5 maybe need to be updated too , or the op doesnt have a gpu that can run the game,but we dont know because he gives no information reguarding his system

Just because it's new, doesn't mean it's the best...
Microsoft still has a load of bugs to clean out of Win8.

I'm so glad I'm still using XP - I have had friends with 7 & 8 asking me if I have an un-used copy of XP still in my house? I sold the last one in 2012 ... He was grumpy.

W8 was not needed.

Used it the other day, reminds me of when vista first came out.
