Any errors or messages? What happens?
Try the basic steps like restarting your computer, updating your DirectX and drivers.

And post your specs.

The happens to me. It does all the updates and then just quit. When you re-launch the game, it will look for updates, find none, and quit.

LOL wtf apparently it is something to do with rockstar DRM. I cant believe that the pirates can play the game but we can't :-((((.

Im installing the game again to see if it was an faulty install yesterday.

Hi just had a crash that kept happening on start-up I found this link that told me to disable all but 2 core for your machine so just alt tab when you start the game go to task manager and -> processes - > max payne-> right click -> set affinity(0,1) and alt tab back

I managed to get it to work by following this "Hey guys I JUST did this and I swear down it worked. I tried everything from the .net, through to reinstalling it 5 times... 6 hours wasted.

But follow these steps and hopefully it works for you!

Go to your Max Payne folder located here:

c:\steam\steamapps\common\maxpayne3\

Or for retail

C:\Program Files (x86)\Rockstar Games\

CUT and move the Max Payne 3 folder and paste it to C:

You should now have C:\Max Payne 3\all of your Max Payne files here.

RENAME the folder to MaxPayne3 (no spaces)

so you should now have

C:\MaxPayne3\all of your Max Payne files here.

Now go to start and go to run, then run regedit and go to this key.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Rockstar Games\Max Payne 3

Click the key on the right called InstallFolder and change it to C:\MaxPayne3

Now run /click on on PlayMaxPayne3.exe in the c:MaxPayne3 folder.

It launched for me! "

What worked for me was starting the game up, hit ALT+TAB, go to task manager Processes and right click the base game and set the affinity to 1 core...my system runs on 4 cores and it was causing the game to crash
