Unable to load KSP

Go to solution Solved by James Kerman,



I've just purchased ksp via Steam and downloaded it, but the program won't load. (64-bit Windows, ver 1.10.1, build id = 02939, unmodded)

The program window itself opens, but only shows a black screen. All of the system requirements seem ok.

I've tried uninstalling / file check. I'm running it on my admin account as well.

What should I do?

https://imgur.com/a/YMstwu8 this is what the screen looks like.


Also, I can't change the 'read only' of the file. The dialogue says it's done, but when I open I it again the

setting 'read only' doesn't change. Can this be the problem?

 The dxdiag is pasted below.

Just a random guess but maybe your problem is with the game's/monitor's resolution, here are two posts THAT might help, but its a total guess from my side



or this Add -popupwindow to the start up Properties>Stet launch options

Again its just a random google search , hopefully thats your problem

Hmm, If you could link to copies of your output.log and player.log as described in the first post in this thread it will assist our friendly and knowledgeable members in narrowing down the problem.

Added them in the first thread. I am not sure how I can include the ksp_log file, though. The link shown in that link doesn't work.
