I recently got a new PC, which came with Windows 7. I installed Crysis on it and worked just fine. A few days later, Windows 8 was released and I had the option to update - which I did.
I re-installed all of my games, and they run without any glitches as far as I can tell, all except Crysis. The errors I am getting range from
an error has occurred... (with a long error code and message that makes no sense to me) to a black window that opens up for a few seconds and then crashes. Similar issues have been reported on the Steam forums and on the MyCrisis forums here and here.
I tried running it in compatibility mode with all the older operating system options as suggested in this post, but no luck, I get the same results.
I also tried patching the game with the latest 1.2 and 1.2.1 patches, it doesn't work either.
How can I get Crysis to work under Windows 8?
