[GUIDE] - How to fix black screen followed by crash. [Updated]
Firstly virify the integrity of your game cache.
Open Steam, open your games library, right-click Toy Soldiers, select 'Properties.'
Select the 'Local Files' tab then click 'Verify Integrity of Game Cache.'


Navigate to
32-Bit Windows <Drive>:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\toy soldiers\support
64-Bit Windows <Drive>:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\toy soldiers\support

( <Drive> is the harddrive on which you installed steam. )

Right-click and run these files as Administrator:
2010_vcredist_x86 - Select 'Repair' if prompted.
Gfwlivesetup
Open the 'DirectX' folder and run 'DXSETUP.'


Right-click 'GameSW' in "...\Steam\SteamApps\common\toy soldiers" select 'Properties.'
Now select 'Compatibility' and tick 'Run as Administrator.'
Do the same with 'Game.'
Then do this with 'Steam' located in the "...\Steam\" folder.


If using Windows XP:
Press the Windows Key + R
Type 'Regedit' without quotes.
Navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Valve"
Right-click the 'Valve' folder and select 'Permissions.'
Check that 'Administrator' and 'SYSTEM' have 'Full Control Ticked.'


YOU MUST RESTART YOUR COMPUTER AFTER.


You should now be able to run and enjoy the game.

Happy playing.

This usually means you need to install the game.

OK, had a bit of a time finding it, but after adding yet more info about my WL account, it then let me activate the key and then it dowloaded and installed yet more updates.. but now the game is working!! Thanks, Zoreslav, very much. I guess no one else here knew how to do that? There was no info on Steam about it either. This is something that needs to be fixed, or at least, pointed out to people trying to install the game.. maybe a sticky about itActivate the key need through the site Windows Live https://live.xbox.com/

Strange... it says it's not a valid code.

I want to get this game but I am afraid this will happen to me.

Happened to me as well, Have had this game for a while now and still cant get it to work

Had this issue as well. Decided to upgrade my laptop's video drivers (Intel HD 3000). That, and likely a reboot after having manually tried to run the support installs, seemed to do the trick. See if your video drivers need updating. May not work, but couldn't hurt.
