Crashlands not launching? Here's the fix!
Hey! We just learned that there was an update to the Steam Beta client on the 18th that is causing Crashlands to be unable to boot. If you can't boot your game, just do the following steps:

1. Go to the "Steam" menu in the top left.
2. Go to "Settings"
3. Under the "Account" tab, look for the "Beta Participation" section.
4. Set your beta participation to be "None - Opt out".

Then, Steam will restart and Crashlands will launch without a hitch!

I am still having the problem of instantly crashing but my steam has always been set to "None - opt out", so not sure how to fix :/ Have tried running as admin, reinstalling, veryfing game cache, nothing works...

Wow, ya, this fixed my startup problem :). Will this be fixed eventually? I would like to stay in the Steam Beta for my Steam controller.

Bycicle: Maybe try this. Go to

C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Crashlands\_CommonRedist\DirectX\Jun2010

And install 'DXSETUP'. Maybe the redist is not installing on your pc. I've had to do this to a number of games that refused to launch.

I don't have the Steam Beta Client, but I'm having this issue as well. I tried r3n4ud's technique, but no joy. Would love to play this game.

It's an incompatibility with the Steam Beta update that came out on January 18, so probably a future update will fix it! Apparently it broke a lot of things...

This fixed my issue.

Love this game by the way! I've been bored with the 100+ games I have right now and couldn't find anything that filled that need for gaming...this one did AND it came out of no where!

I have it on my iPod too...luvz

Hey, again....I'm not part of the Steam Beta and so I cannot opt out. I can't play this game...frustrating!

That "fix" didn't fix anything - are there problems with Windows 10 perhaps?

Is there an ETA on a fix for this? I don't want to have to go through the beta uninstall / reinstall every time I start this game.

Found another workaround if anyone wants to try it. My crashlands fails to launch whether using steam beta or regular client.

Workaround: '+ Add A Game', 'Add non-steam game', browse to your steam/steamapps/common/crashlands/ folder. On a default steam install this would be something like: C:\Program Files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\crashlands\

Once you get there select the crashlands.exe and add a shortcut to it as a non steam game.

Try using this shortcut (not the original crashlands steam shortcut) to see if it fixes your crashing issues, worked fine for me.

Me helps no for this fixes :-(
With Steam Non Beta or 3rd Party shortcut starts the game shortly, i hear music and i see a whitze screen. After a click the games chrashes.

I have Win 10 64bit with a geforce gtx 780 and a 34 Zoll monitor with 2560 x 1080 or 3440 x 1440 Solution. Please fix that!


UPDATE:
The Game runs when:
I go in the steam installation folder and make the compatibilymode "Win7" and start with the .exe in this folder. In Steam (Beta or not or 3rd Party) with shortcut starts not!
But the picture has no fullscreen, i see the taskbar ... not perfect, but he starts ...

UPDATE 2:
I change in "windows mode" Apply with "Back, then i change again of "Fullscreen.
Now i have a fullscreen game ... but on the next start you must take the prcedur again ...

So, adding the game as a non-Steam game seems to work - makes me wonder how much testing was done with the Steam client... Didn't even need to worry about disabling Steam Beta participation.

I was able to do this sucessfully without opting out of beta, thankfully. I'm involved with the Fallout 4 beta which is my primary game. Thanks alot!!!
