I recently installed Anno 1503, Mafia, and Praetorians on my PC. After installing each one, not one of them will work leading me to believe these are not individual issues relating to each but one.
I have Steam installed but haven't used it for any of the aforementioned games.
Upon installing each one, I went into the properties of each and set them to run as admin but to no avail. When I try to launch, I'm asked to allow the program to run but nothing else happens... no error msg, nothing.
I have also
- Restarted my PC
- Tested other games. Fallout 3 and Morrowind still run. Rome Total War, which used to run fine, no longer works either
- Uninstalled/Reinstalled Notepad++ as a test, and that launches fine still
Any ideas? Feel free to ask for any further info.
My PC specs:
- Vista Home Premium (SP2) 64-bit
- Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33GHz
- 8GB Ram
- NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT
- DirectX 11
