Borderlands 2: Patch v1.1.3 - Windows 8 Fix!

Borderlands 2 - PC

Borderlands 2

Windows 8 has problems running Borderlands 2 -- especially some Skidrow crack copy or Blackbox copy that has been going around (it's a great game -- you should buy it from Steam!). It does occur on retail copies of the game too though for some people.

The game does not launch. It does not open -- the mouse moves and shows the hour glass but fails to boot the game. Normally, you'd have to do a Windows 98 compatible mode setting on the EXE to allow it to run, which makes the game not run as smoothly. However, there is a Windows 8 Fix -- a patch -- that will allow the game to run for you on Windows 8 Consumer preview and Windows 8 RTM. Note this also helps users who have Windows 7 who cannot launch the game.

We will be sure to post the latest Windows 8 Fix for v1.1.4 patch too when available.

Thanks to paperboy666 for letting us know about the new fix!

Make sure to disable the Windows 98/ME compatibility mode on the EXE after patching (if you had enabled it for a previous Windows 8 Borderlands Fix).

    Tried on Windows 8 Pro (retail), doesn't work.
    Apparently only works on Preview and RTM versions, if your game is cracked.
    There should be a patch on Steam which should fix it, but only if you bought it.

    Going back to Windows 7 Ultimate...

    Where should I extract these files?

  • By UpwardGaming, April 15, 2013 @ 1:42 am

    Right click on your Borderlands shortcut and check the path. You put them in the same folder (and overwrite) so make backups of all necessary files.

    These files aren't supported by newer versions of Borderlands though. So be weary unless you are using an old version.
