I have the same problem and I didn't get a single view on my thread let alone a reply so I will join forces with you here and see if we can get some help.

From my Thread:
"I thought this looked interesting and I decided to try the demo. When I start it up I get the developer logos and what not. Then I see a candle and hear about 3 music notes. Then, crash to desktop instantly with no Error message. I tried running as admin to no avail.

Here are my specs.
Windows 7 64 bit
AMD Phenom II X4 940 3.0 GHz
4 gigs DDR2 Memory
AMD Radeon 5870 1 Gig"

lucky there is a demo or i would have raged if i payed 9 euro for a game that does not work. Maybe the future will bring an update with fix.

Yeah me too. Hopefully updates will fix this; it looks really fun. I have also tried running it in compatibility mode for several other OS's with no luck. Would you mind posting your specs? Perhaps we can find some greatest common denominator.

Intel q9450

Nothing is overclocked by me

Perhaps its related to 64-bit windows.

Playing on windows 7 64 bit here with no issues at all. Not windows 7 64 related.

Win 7 64-bit here and having this issue. Glad there's a demo.

Update - Go into the Magicka demo folder and run the dxwebsetup.exe file and let that download. Worked for me
