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.

WIN 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Intel q9450
MSI P45 Neo 2 (motherboard)
Corsair XMS2 800MHz DDR II (4 gb ram)
Asus GTX 285 TOP

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.

Thank you.

Well there goes that lead.

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
