Starcraft will not start WIN 10

When I hit “play”, the game looks like it will open up. Goes to dark screen, then returns to the main page. No error codes. Windows 10, problem started last week.

Same problem, installed and uninstalled starcraft same for Battle.net, I bought remartered, nothing opens…

Try this to open game

Close already open starcraft games that are not shown in the Task manager than try again.

This WORKS… It’s pretty bad that you’d have to do this in order to launch the game, but hey… whatever.

Key notes form the video…

Make a shortcut of StarCraft.EXE in the install folder, copy the shortcut to the desktop.
Edit Properties of the new shortcut…
add -Launch to the end of the target destination.

Badabing, badaboom, more Pylons constructed…

Update… the fixes play for one day. The game crashes the following day persisting with bad game data errors. must uninstall and reinstall to fix. frustrating…
