I just installed the three modules go get me up to Legends. I have not played the game on this PC before. The autostart runs but the game does not start. I have set both to run in Admin mode. I am running .Net 4.5

Thanks

Anthony

as an additional question, will "Legends" support Windows 8.1 ?

I just bought a brand new computer, has Windows 8 on it, and am having the same problem with Legends; game crashes at startup. The last computer I bought also had Windows 8 and the same thing happened with that one. I tried all the recommended fixes and then some on the last machine. Frankly, I don't want to spend hours going through the same stuff all over again. I'd love to buy Shadows, but I don't see the point at this point.

Not a Window 8 user, not yet anyway, but does Windows 8 have compatibility mode settings like previous versions of Windows have had that you could try running DW under?

Yes, Windows 8 does have a compatibility mode like other versions of Windows. F/Y/I, I installed Distant Worlds Shadows on my laptop using Windows 8 without using a compatibility mode. It runs just fine. Sorry to hear the other guys are having a problem.

Got it to work! Guess I'll be getting shadows. I think my issue was sound card-related.

Distant Worlds: Shadows works fine for us on our Windows 8 and 8.1 test systems.
