Launcher.exe has stopped working...
When I attempt to start the gaem from steam library I receive the above error. I went into the directory and attempted to start the game there, same error. I originally had my steam in c:\progam Files (x86). Deleted steam (along with all my games) and redownloaded the steam client to C:\ steam, redownloaded the game, same error. I have tried starting as admin, gone through steam and verified cashe (countless times) and now I am just plain getting frustrated. I spent 20 bucks on this game and I cant even play it, and thanks to steams no refund policy I feel jipped. Please help if anyone can. I have done everything I can think of. I cannot even access the game to verify in game settings or anything.

I have also gone to my documents and deleted the amnesia folder there and retried to start the game, same error. I have looked all over online (which is where I found the idea to remove steam from my (x86) and reinstall on just c:

Any other ideas? Please help. Latest drives, ect are installed.

Any mod want to look into this? It seems like A LOT of people are having this issue and nothing is being done about it. VALVE should probably remove this off STEAM since a lot of people are having this issue. 30 dollars paid and I can't even play the damn game. Wasted money. I don't care if it's a steam issue as a game designer if you're going to advertise and sell your game on a platform you should maybe look into the problems or at least put up a sticky post on the forums to warn people of the current STEAM bugs. I have latest drivers (even rechecked them tonight) and I still cannot run this game. TY for taking my money and offering zero support except for the typical "Make sure you drivers are up to date" even though I already said they were and offered the specs from my PC to proove it and nothing has yet to be done. Terribl support.

Thanks for stealing my money.

Why don't you visit the REAL Amnesia/Frictional Games forum instead of hating against Steam and the game itself. Ask the support team and the original developers or SEARCH BY YOURSELF. Hating is easy. I'm not part of the support, I just try my best helping people with problems, because otherwise most Laptop-Intel-Integrated-Card-Users wouldn't be able to play. I don't know every issue and not even every solution to problems, but frictional themself can guess it better. Not Valve/Steam should be support for this game. They are not publishing it, they are providing a download-platform and a discussion-system which are both free to use for everyone.

Ask here:

To note I post it on steam becauseFrictional Games as stated this is a steam issue and that's pretty much all they will say about it and are no willing to support in finding a fix.

Have you tried to start the game by itself and not using the launcher?
