Exclamation PR Launcher doesn't open on Win 8.1

Hi, i start saying that my english it's not good . Anyway i have just downloaded V 1.3.5 Standalone. When i double click the icon of PR the pc starts to load the launcher but later a few seconds nothing happen and it stops to load it. I have tried too much things that i have read in the forums but nothing is helping me. I tried too to start it from the folder by clicking on PRB2.exe, at that time it starts but say that i must run it from the launcher and i can only exit, if i start from PRB2launcher, happen the same thing of ever: it starts to load but nothing. I tried too with changing the compatibility. Please help me im new and i like too much this game, i'd like too much to play it

Go to Documents/projectreality/profiles/default/video check resolution is the same as your system.

Launcher is here on mine you can maybe remove the Games bit it auto installs in Program files iirc:

C:\Games\PR\mods\pr\bin\PRLauncher.exe run as admin

Check and rerun the installer for the three stooges, C++, directX and .Net

What OS are you, what CPU, RAM and GPU?

The project reality folder in my dox will get recreated when you launch PR for the first time.

Operating System - win10 or 8.1 or 7

GPU Graphics Processing unit or Graphics Card

Will the launcher launch? - the first window with PLAY manual options etc.

Have you set run as admin, have you done DX .Net? and .NET in that order try after each one.

They are windows programs needed to run games amongst other things fairly often if they aren't installed PR won't start

Direct X first
