Hi all.

Bought the game last week and it ran fine, now it just wont start up. it says preparing to launch and the borderlands splash logo appears but then nothing happens. Tried deleting local content and restoring from back up but it's still not right.

Any ideas?

Thanks :)

I had this issue. Game launched fine for me on April the 3rd but on the morning of April the 4th it wouldn't launch anymore.

Issue "Failed to load module Map splash" or something like that.

I defragged the files, checked the integrity and even tried running as Admin or even in compatibility mode.

None of that worked so I tried a reinstall. Still wouldn't launch

Then I decided to look at my windows update history.

On April 4th a security update:

Security Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (KB973924)

Was installed, I simply uninstalled that rebooted and the game started working again.

You can find the file if it's installed under Programs and Features in Control Panel.

(I am using Windows 7 64bit)

Hope that helps!
