How to Fix
Call of Duty: Black Ops II

With such a new operating system as Windows 8 (or consumer preview), you would think it could handle all games pretty well. Unfortunately, it doesn't. It works great on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 though.

CoD: Black Ops 2 is a perfect example. The game may crash with an error dump, fail to launch, freeze, show a black screen, or simply not run after launching the game EXE (or through Steam / Origin).

There are some ways to fix it so that the game WILL run. So if you want to play Call of Duty: Black Ops II on Windows 8, you're in luck!

Running Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on Windows 8

Okay. It's not too difficult to get this game to run at the moment, though the success rate depends entirely on your setup.
-- Install the included DirectX package included with the game
-- Next, get the latest version of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable (32-bit, 64-bit) -- as you may in fact not have these missing files and thus your game is not working
-- Run the game in Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode (you can try Windows 98 compatibility mode too, but it will lag if it works)
-- Install the latest NVIDIA, ATI / AMD, Intel graphics card or video card drivers (they include hotfixes for situations such as this where bugs or glitches prevent the game from running or cause it to lag or freeze)

A patch or update will be available soon to solve this officially, but you must wait until then. Many have no problems running the game, but end up encountering errors after Windows be careful! I'd recommend updating anyway, as you may have already been affected by the update error and a solution is around the corner.
