    Same here.
    I installed it for the first time and was able to play 1 1/2 hours, before i quit regularly.
    The next day i startet the launcher and after clicking "Play" the launcher closes, but the game does not start.
    I did not install any mods!

    Now, a couple of days later, the game still does not start. I deactivated my AntiVirus and Firewall and deleted the "Launcher" folder in the "AppData" directory, but still nothing. There is even no crash report in one of the game directories.

    It's a shame, that something that is still in beta state, as the launcher, is the only was to start up the game i spend good money for.

    Update on the issue:

    I brought the game back to live by installing the beta patch 8. We'll see, how long this will last.

    That's what i've done:

    1.) in steam: open the game properties for TTW:Warhammer (right click on the game in the library)
    2.) switched to tab "betas"
    3.) selected patch 8
    4.) killed some time while the 2.4 GB were downloading and installed
    5.) startet the game through the launcher

    At first I actually downloaded patch 7, but that didn't work. If patch 8 doesn't work, try instaling patch 7 first and then patch 8.
