Hi guys! How's it going? I am not able to get COD BO2 to run
. I have done some digging online and it seems that quite a few people are having this issue and have not found a solution. I am hoping some of you gurus on here will come up with a solution like you usually do. The following is a summary of the problem which I will copy and paste from my post on the Steam forum.
Add me to the list of people that cannot get my COD BO 2 to launch. I got the game for Christmas, but just installed it a couple days ago. When I go to start the game my screen goes all black and my mouse pointer becomes the spinning circle showing that it's loading. However, nothing happens. This happens with the campaign, MP, and Zombies. I have waited as long as 15 minutes and have not been able to get any of the BO2 games to launch. When I go to Task Manager to stop the COD BO2 Process, it says the game is not responding and I will get a message saying "Error During Initialization. Unhandled Exception Caught." All of my other COD games on Steam work just fine.
This is not a hardware problem. I'm on Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit SP2. I have an Intel Core i5 2500K @ 3.30GHz, EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX570 with 1280MB GDDR5, ASRock P67Extreme4 Gen3 mobo, and 8GB of DDR3.
I have tried the following various suggestions I have found online and still cannot get it to launch.
Updated my NVIDIA Drivers. Currently have 310.90.
Updated my Bios.
Windows is up to date.
Install and uninstalled the game numerous times, both from the disk and Steam download.
Verified game cache file for single player, mp, and zombies.
Run steam as an Administrator.
Disabled Steam Cloud Sync for all three games.
Run ...\Steamapps\Common\Call of Duty Black Ops II\redist\vcredist_x86.exe
Run ...\Steamapps\Common\Call of Duty Black Ops II\redist\DirectX\dxsetup.exe
I have never had this issue with any previous COD game or other game on Steam where I have not been able to get the game to even run. This is frustrating and a complete waste of $60 if I can't get the game to run.
If anyone has any other suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks
