FIX: Borderlands Fails to Launch - Nothing Happens

Borderlands 2 Game Launcher

Edit: Great news! A new Borderlands 2 Windows 8 fix is now available for patching your game! Check out Borderlands 2: Patch v1.1.3 - Windows 8 Fix!

Whether you bought the Steam copy of Borderlands 2 or the CD / DVD copy, you may have encountered this annoying error. You try to launch the game via the launcher, and nothing happens.

Basically. the mouse cursor moves like it's loading, stop, and it failed to launch.

This happens on Windows 8 Consumer Preview and even Windows 7.

It doesn't matter if you have 32bit / x86, or 64bit / x64 either. It can even happen on Vista.

Luckily, there is an easy solution.

How to Fix Borderlands 2 Not Opening

If your Borderlands 2 Doesn't Open, then click this Google Search link (or type "Borderlands 2 Windows 8 Fix").

Locate the patch and use it.

Though it is called "Windows 8 Fix", it actually works on the other mentioned operating systems I talked about earlier too.

Hope that was able to help you troubleshoot and solve your problem!

If it still is not launching for you still, then I suggest taking a look at our other guide Guide: How to Get Borderlands 2 to Run on Windows 8 ! (And Windows 7). It has several additional solutions that can help you get the game to run correctly.
