Try and start the game using the shortcut to the launcher or through the launch game button on Steam.

Additional Information

There is nothing. No loader. I press the button on steam then it goes into a light colour and I cant press it. Then after a few moments it goes back to green then I can press it again. When I click the shortcut its as though I have not clicked it at all.

Your new Windows is probably missing some software needed to launch the game.
Make sure you have installed all drivers (GPU, etc.), DirectX and VC++ 2013 Redist package.

If that doesn't help, follow the instructions on this page:

Thanks.
But I didn't see anything on that page that can help.
The launcher does not even start.
Where could I find a list of all the required drivers?

I didn't see anything on that page that can help.

So did you make sure you have installed DirectX 11 and VC++ 2013 Redist packages, and verified the game data via Steam?

Where could I find a list of all the required drivers?

You just need the normal drivers needed for running a game. The GPU and Audio drivers are probably all you need.

Thanks again. Here are my results.

  1. Installed DirectX11

  1. Already had VC++ 2013 Redist packages aparrently

  1. Verifying game data;

All files validated

I'll check to see if I can update the drivers. Do Bohemia still support this game?
