Ksp will no longer open?

Question

I've been playing on the 1.2 beta recently, but now that the update is fully out I find that the game will no longer open. When I press play game the curser pops up but thats it, all I see is my desktop, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times and I've also reset my computer, nothing seems to work. I have a Lenovo laptop with Windows 8.1, If anyone knows how to fix this please tell me because I would really like to play this game more. 

 

Also I'm using full stock ksp

If it is Steam,

Then copy the save folder contents other than the scenario and training folder to another folder,

Then copy the mods to another folder as well.

Then delete everything within the Kerbal Space Program folder.

Then change it from prerelease to 'opt out of all beta programs' in the kerbal space program steam properties.

Then it should download the latest version without the risk of leaving something from a previous install that could cause issues

Then see if the game runs without mods

Then see if the game runs with mod

 

Hope that helps

I'm playing on Linux and have found that I can no longer launch the game from Steam, but launching from the command line works fine for some reason.  Have you tried launching it directly instead of through Steam?
