Thats why I am staying away from Windows 8. Windows 7 is rock hard for games.

Hi,

Not sure If you fixed the problem, But I have just installed Windows 8 Pro 32-bit and I was having the same problem. If I was clean install follow this

Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable which can easily be downloaded on the Microsoft website as x86 or x64 edition:

32 bit: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=55...

64 bit: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=14...

Usually the application misses the dll

Hope It Helps - It Worked For Me :)

Can you provide more information about where the game stops running and your specs? I run the same OS (8 enterprise x64) and haven't had any issues other than having to disable 2 of the 6 cores on my phenom II x6.

Ha, I think your PC is just board. The title probably isn't demanding enough so its looking for something else to do and forgets to run the game.

The problem is likely that the application won't accept the offload features of the Killer, so you may need to bypass it. You can do that by making sure that you're running the latest version of the drivers (from http://www.killergaming.com/support/Downloads) and do the following:

First, ensure hidden files and folders are being shown in Windows Explorer, then navigate to

C:\ProgramData\Bigfoot Networks

Right-click the GameDetect.xml file and click "Edit"

From here, you'll see a section at the top that looks like this:

<GameDetectSettings>
<ByPassSection>
<ByPass>mozybackup.exe</ByPass>
<ByPass>mozystat.exe</ByPass>
<ByPass>mozyconfig.exe</ByPass>

All you need to do is add a new line right under the mozy stuff and replace it with your application .exe. So, it should look something like this:

<ByPass>yourapp.exe</ByPass>

Then save the file and exit, then you'll need to reboot. You may then be able to connect to your game.

Problem : COD Black Ops 2 Doesn't Work in Windows 8 Fix

Possible Solution: if you are using Windows 8 Consumer Preview, then it will not run and I have a simple solution to make it working, just right click the game.exe, Properties, go to compatibility tab, and check the option “Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3)”.

Thanks

for blackops 2 m8 compatibility windows xp will not works because blackops 2 uses the dx11 api, if the game will not run then check your hardware is fully compatible and free from bugs
