My Witcher game won't Run, Start, or Open. The only thing that will open
is the register, or the launcher program. When i click on launch game or try to start it from the Excutable its self it doesn't do anything. It acts like its about to load by showing the thinking mouse icon. then after 5 secs nothing. Do you have any idea why this could be, im stumped. i have tried everything i can. if you have any ideas or simular problems it would be nice to get anyones Thoughts, Comments, or Suggestions on this. Thank you all

I, too, have had this exact same problem and am unable to find any advice anywhere else on the net.

My specs:
Vista 32 bit (first sign of failure, I know)
Intel Core 2 Quad, 2.4ghz
3326mb RAM
DX10
GeForce 8800 GTS

I meet, and exceed, the recommended specs... I have a feeling it has something to do with the 32 bit vista, but at this point, I'm open to any suggestion.

My System


Hi everyone, welcome to TSF. With the game installed, try this:
  1. Update directx here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en
  2. Donwload and install this hotpatch: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en
  3. Update patches for the game here: ftp://ftp.download-center.com/intern...Patch_1.2a.exe
  4. Restart.
  5. Right click on game icon, go to properties, compatiability and run as administrator.

try the game again. If it still doesnt work download PC Wizard from my sig and install it. Open it and go to FILE, SAVE AS and click ok. Then save the text file and copy that text into this thread.

Strychnine and nicoleannec please start your own threads. good luck.
