Ok when it launch may take 5 min max, otherwise re-launch and they said to update video card? did you do it through steam? next to update video card also that mean you launched game if you changed graphics?

try opening STEAM as administrator as well...
Right click icon > Run As ..
I have had some success with this with other titles with startup issues. Dont know why ANY game would need admin access, but whatever..

@OP
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common

Find the game folder, find the executable for the game > right click > properties > compatibility > XP SP3 + Run as admin (if needed)

Also right click > run steam as admin for it (if needed).

Also try updating graphic card drivers and run:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/e...a-9b6652cd92a3

-

"Dont know why ANY game would need admin access, but whatever.. "

Seems logical to me.

I know it's a little late but I just came across this post and remembered I got a "Cannot open Graphics" message a while back. I remember going into the Game Controller in the control panel and hit "Default" and the game loaded with no problem. Just a thought.
