    make sure you follow the minimum specs

    "GameSalad Creator for Windows is currently supported on Windows 7 and Windows Vista. 2GB of RAM required and 4GB of RAM is recommended. Does not support windows xp"

    If you do, I suggest contacting support..

    I currently have the same problem as hollowed92.
    I am running Windows 8 in Beta test mode via parallels on a MacBookPro, and have also tried opening in both Vista and Windows 7 (compatibility mode) with no success.
    I will persevere and report back.

    I've tired everything I could to get it to run but no luck hopefully an update will arrive soon I am pretty anxious to try it out and don't want to format back to windows 7. I just got my key a few hours ago keeping my fingers crossed for some good news :)

    Hi, I don't think running windsors 7 (compatibility mode) will work, as I think, a full windows 7 or vista system is needed.. not sure,,

    I'm having the same issues, so I doubt it's a specific Windows 8 issue. I'm running windows 7 with 8 GB of ram, and an i7 quad processor.

    Trying to open the application results in nothing happening(visually). Looking at the task manager shows the gamesalad.exe application opens, but is immediately closed
