Left4Dead 2 crashing to desktop in Windows 8
So bought L4D2 at the weekend 75% off, played it for about 2 hours last night but tonight no matter what I do it just drops me to the desktop after the opening movie. Anyone else having this problem and more importantly how do you fix it?

PROBLEM: windows 8 /UNISTALL

I had that problem - ended up having to verify my cache for the game and it re-installed one part of the game - works fine now. Maybe try the same? (Properties -> Local Files -> Verify Integrity of Game Cache)

I'm using the latest Catalyst Drivers. Also forgot to mention that Windows Defender didn't like the .exe and asked me to send it to Microsoft to see if it was malicious.

Thanks Vettieboo that seems to have done it. Verification failed and Steam had to reacquire one of the files.

Trying this... Windows 8 has been working fine with Left 4 Dead 2 until today. It's pretty annoying having it quit soon after launching with no error message.

Seems to be working fine now, thanks.

Get you any Error-Message promt?

If not, look at your Windows App Log ( [WIN]+[R] -> eventvwr.msc )
Under Windows-Protokoll -> Applications (or System)
If there is nothing to see, you should do 2 things:

1.) Verify your Game-Installation: (Steam-Game -> right-click -> Properties/Settings -> Local Data -> Verify Game)

2.) If the games Chrashed again, verify your driver for your Graphik are stable and all needed parts are installed correctly


If none of this helps: Now begin the real research: Any other programm you installed or driver make an cross-direction-problem (like a Sound-Programm have an unknown effect to a other Software, etc.) - I know, thats dont sounds helpfull, but its the only way to find the critical point.

If it doesn't help, the Valve-Support-Team can help you too.
