Just Cause 2 wont start on Windows 8
Hi guys

I really love JC2 and also multiplayer but it doesn't work..
When I start the game Steam says I'm playing it for 2 seconds and then it shutsdown and nothing really happened... Do anyone know how to fix that?

1. Right click on the program's shortcut (LNK file), .EXE file, BAT file, CMD file, or MSI file.

2. Click on Properties.

3. Click on the Compatibility: Run in Windows XP

Getting error (0xc000007b)...

every time i try to play just cause 2, it says Direct X fatal error, idk how to fix it

0xc000007b error usually comes from mixing up 32bit environment with 64bit one. For example 32bit application loads a 64bit dll causing 0xc000007b error.

In most cases it's .NET framework causing issues. This can easily fixed by re-installing latest .NET framework from http://www.microsoft.com/net

It's a windows 8 error with nvidia optimus (on laptops).

Here's the solution:
