Hello all,

I am just wondering if anyone has had any issues with opening the new XCOM demo. When trying to launch the game from Steam I get the message "Preparing to launch XCOM Enemy Unknown" and then it goes away after about 2 seconds then nothing happens.... I am not even sure what to try, but the normal stuff like reboot the PC and restart Steam. Neither of these things worked. I was wondering if anyone has had a similar issue and what they did to resolve it if so.....

Thank you

Are you using Windows XP, because that operating system is not supported by the game.
