Exclamation NBA 2K13 (PC Download) wont launch.

Or: If I hear PSA by Jay-Z one more time with no basketball after it, I might punch my computer....

After waiting thru a two week postponement, myself and a few other users of this game found that it stops working immediately after the aforementioned concert video plays. If we try to start the game early, it also stops working. We have tried various combinations of the following:

*Reinstalling the game.
*Running as administrator.
*updating service packs, C++ and Direct X.
*Not running it through Steam.
*Checking and adjusting settings on Steam
*Various compatibility checks.
*Griping REEEAALY hard on chatboards.

I will say, that the game does occasionally work, but while I have enjoyed about 5 hours of outstanding gaming in the 2 times Ive gotten the game to boot up, it has also pooped out on me close to 45 times....

Advice?

I had the problem last week. I solved it by turning off the windows firewall entirely.

However, today I wake up to find out that that solution no longer works. Wonder if a patch went out last night.

....So im talking to an actual 2k rep. He mentioned that there is a ".dll" error in my reg that may be crashing the game. I am barely computer literate, but about to give a go at a fix. If you know how to lookit all that code-ish stuff, might wanna take a look at yer registry and see if you have something similar going on...my error is called "ntdll.dll" and the supposed fix is here....

They seriously need to be kidding if they think the average person can do any of the non-basic things in that guide. I wouldn't bother attempting it.

Not particularly interested in getting in a professional to 'fix' my computer (which works fine with everything else).

Did any of those fixes work for you?

go to \steam and change compatibility to Windows 7 and tick run as administrator check box

I have seen and tried your solution before, sadly it does not work for me.
Did anyone find a way to fix this problem? I'm hoping I didn't waste my money on this game, if I knew this would have happen I would have torrented it/bought a console version which would have given me more content.
