So apparently this problem has been around for years, but I have never seen anyone post that they have found a solution. When attempting to launch Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, nothing happens other than it appearing as a background process in Windows Taskmanager. I have tried launching from the Dev exe and the exe, with no luck. I attempted "the purge" as shown on the troubleshooting page, which did not work either. I even went so far as to update my drivers as much as I could, with no luck once again. I tried reinstalling the latest version of the correct DirectX for the game, didn't work. It seems no matter what I try, Sins refuses to work. I'm absolutely stuck. Is there anyone who has encountered this problem before willing to share their solution? Please do.
