I am getting the same thing. It started as just saying unable to load steam.dll, but I got that file from the steam directory, copied it into the game directory, and now it gets further, but I am still unable to play te game.

It works perfectly fine on Windows 7, so i dunno what the problem is. Compatibility doesnt do Shiznit though

OmegaEdge, this discussion is about Windows 10 not windows 7.

Are we likely to get a fix or are those with Windows 10 now screwed?

Boxed copy user, getting the same issue you guys have. And since PopCap is now owned by EA and, learning that EA is unwilling to help, we're screwed.
My game isn't screwed though. I'm on Windows 10 and Bejeweled Twist works like a jewel!

Not wishing anyone ill, but glad to know others are having this issue too. If I find out anything, I will post it.

Having the same problem.
It worked at first but had no fancy graphics and couldn't enable 3D accelaration for some reason. Tried a compatibility test through windows 10 and now it won't even run :(

Just found a solution!
Still doesn't fix the fancy 3D acceleration but the game at least runs!

Go into the BejeweledTwist.exe file properties and under compatibilty enable:
Run in compatibility mode for: Windows Vista
Run in 640x480 Res
Disable display scaling

Hope that works for you guys!

This problem only appears in the 64bits version of win8, 8.1 and 10; in 32bits version of win8, 8.1 and 10, BT runs normally. In win7 64bits and 32bits version runs normally too.

Is this why Steam won't even show it available for sale for me? I've owned Bejeweled Twist for years, one of my favorite go-to game for mindless distraction. But it won't work on Windows 10 so when I saw it in the store here, I thought maybe it would be a newer version that would work in it, but apparently not according to what I read here. Still, I find it odd that there is no buy button, no price listed when I open the store page - yes store page, not community hub. even in my wishlist there was no price showing. I also noticed this on a couple of other games in my wishlist - why are they not showing up as purchasable? Any ideas?

I tried the compatibility mode before, but tried it on Win 7 and it still didn't run. Maybe I'll hunt it down and reinstall again. Anyone else having luck on that?

I have had no luck getting it to run under W10, at all. Fortunately, I have enough disk space that I set up a dual boot with W7 and W10 when I upgraded to W10. Then I don't have to worry about it.

I have had the problem for a while. I checked back on the discussions for this game and saw others have had same problem.
I saw that Clankrocks said that teh following worked for him...

Go into the BejeweledTwist.exe file properties and under compatibilty enable:
Run in compatibility mode for: Windows Vista
Run in 640x480 Res
Disable display scaling

I just did the same and it worked.
ever the investigator and not actually liking the res... I tried without the disable display scaling and it working.. i then tried different compats .. and eventually i ended up where even above set didnt work.
I note that when it downloads again there is a compat.cfg file created...
i wonder if that isnt right in some way for 64bit?
So my env - 64 bit win 10... it was working when we first moved me to win 10 (fresh install and not upgrade) then I think there was a steam change (dont remember exactly when..) and then it didnt work anymore...
but as i i dont play that often .. the periods and therefore changes may not actually be correct:-)
since win 10 is having more frequent patches too.

now when i install it again it came back wth same problem...i also just noted taht 2 files didnt get removed.. so i renamed teh dir. when I went back to launch it it still didnt work and so I checked the compat settings... this time the settings were still there.
so this time i am settig the compat settings back to default before downloading it again...
fingers crossed.

so having gone round in circles a few times... it wont work again... sometimes its the steam.dll that it complains about and sometimes that it wont unpack.
strange since i also have bejeweled 3 and that is fine. and it doesnt need compat mode at all.
inote that the pop cap page that the readme points to doesnt mention this twist at all:-(
I have the feeling that they ditched it:-(
