    I think I’m also having a similar problem…

    PROBLEM: In the launcher I click “Play” and the Play button remains “clicked” but the game doesn’t start. When I go to the mod manager the game remains thinking always.

    I try to delate all mods, check the integrity of files, and I uninstalled the game, but the problem remains.

    I attached the images of the crash, and the DxDiag, preferences and modified.log files.

    I hope somebody could help me, thank you!

    The new launcher is the problem.

    I revert to the old launcher in the beta section of warhammer II (right click--> Properties-->Betas-->Launcher release candidate, and the game starts :)

    I got it to work.. had to change the compatibility

    Open Steam
    right click your game
    choose properties
    click the Local Files tab
    click the Browse local Files
    right click your games EXE
    choose properties
    click Compatibility tab
    Click "Run compatibility troubleshooter"

    Mine was changed to Windows 8 now the game launches normally.

    if you have different users than make sure you click the "Change settings for all users" at the bottom

    There is this other problem that I HAD FOR YEARS without realizing since I thought that cant be it since it asks me for permission (admin) every time before starting BUT MANY MANY of you will be unable to launch under windows 10 because you don't start the steam app UNDER ADMINISTRATOR (The steam app NOT the Game!!!). I had this problem FOR YEARS and tried everything from now and then again to get it to run but it never went beyond the LAUNCHER-.-. Then i admined steam icon and it all worked I was SO SO angry...

    >CLOSE STEAM (completely)
    >Go to the desktop or window start icon
    >RIGHT CLICK on it
    >Go Compatibility on the top (6 little tabs)
    >click change settings for all users
    >then click run this program as admin and apply then ok and close
    >start steam
    > And start the Game.

    I had this problem NO OTHERS NO Driver things ALL OTHER GAMES even Warhammer 1 WORKED NORMAL...EXCEPT Warhammer 2 NO PROBLEMs...it would go to launcher but then NOT start although asking me for Permission before starting and everything I would click OK then it would just go back to Play from Running in the steam library. And I really tried EVERYTHING but nothing worked...It's THIS since I changed this EVERYTHING runs perfectly.
