Black Screen
If you have problem with starting game (black screen for few minutes) please try to install media feature pack:

If that's not issue try to install video codec pack, for example:

Found the issue (might be applicable for others).
My screen resolution is 1920x1080, which seems to cause the problem.
I changed it to 800x600 (resolution "safe mode") and everything works.
In the game settings, I unchecked the full screen option, and selected 1280x720 in the game and it works (also after returning to my original 1920x1080 resolution).
Then in the windows game, I set in game settings to 1920x1080 (still windowed) and it works!
I am just guessing but maybe it comes up by default in a resolution not compatible with the 1920x1080 so nothing is shown.
I tested it now with full screen and without a frame and it works.
I hope this helps others...

Output log file would be also very helpful:

Hi! I have the same problem with the black screen. The mediafeaturepack installation doesn't work on my system. (Win 8.1)
Have you any ideas to fix the problem?

Probablby the reason of that bug is video codeck problem, Could you try installing codecks pack? For example: https://www.codecguide.com/download_k-lite_codec_pack_basic.htm ?
