Well, there is a fix, but my computer didn't like it so much. If you would of continued reading some of the complaint threads about the game not starting you've seen one that mentions, going into your device manager accessing display adapters and disabling the secondary display adapter

something like intel etc or in any case it won't be listed as ati/nvidia whatever it will be the computer generic display device, I've noticed this mostly with the laptops..Unless of course you built your computer and have more than one.

Could you try the following -

C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\stronghold3\bin\confi g.xml
(Depends on if you installed steam in default location or have a x64 OS)

At the end of the resolution put "windowed=1"

So for example my one looks like this -
<resolution width=1920 height=1200 windowed=1/>
