As a nice guy wrote on another forum:

Check your installed programs under "Control Panel" -> "Programs and Features". Search for the "Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable", and CHECK THE VERSION. If your version is 8.0.59193, the program will just not work as I describe.

Solution: Update it to 8.0.61001
Step 1. Get the program from the following microsoft download page:

Remember to select "x86" no matter what version your OS is (x86 or x64).

Step 2. Install it and try to run the game again.

I figure out this is a VC dist problems by study the Windows logs and the error messages. And I just do a lot try-and-error from microsoft download. It's very difficult to find the "latest" version VC++2005 dist on the Microsoft website. At least this solution is work for me.

The main problem is the VC dist come with the Steam package is the old version (8.0.59193) but the program is require the new version (8.0.61001). Maybe it changed with version update, but I guess Steam never update their install bundle.

I'll reply to the Steam support with what I found. The reply from Steam Support is just look like copy-and-paste answer. I almost want to ask him is he used to be a player like me before he took a arrow in the knee.

Try this solution, some said it worked. Others said just manually installing the vcredist, DirectX and nVidia Phisyx solved the issue (these can be found in the game's directory, e.g. C:\Steam\SteamApps\common\Ship simulator extremes\Resources\redist). In my case, neither these helped :-( so I'd be grateful for any other possible solution.

write faq for chinese
1. 安裝最新的顯卡 driver 跟 physys .(非最重要)
2. 下載最新的 MS Visual C++(重要)
3. 我的文件夾中若沒有 "ShipSimExtremes Userdata" 存在(??)
4.保持 steam 遊戲的更新(勾自動更新)

@gary, did you try the solution I wrote 2 posts above? Installing a new verison of VC2005 runtime might help. You should also download and install the latest nVidia Physics instead of the one that comes with this.
