Does anyone know what I should do when I get this bug? I haven't had problems with the game until now (except two random crashes). I haven't played it for a week or so and I was in Act 3 just about to finish the gargoyle quest and then the game, but now when I try to launch it, the following message appears: "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click ok to close the application" Will a reinstall fix this?
I've been having trouble with every menu, or everything with a scroll. sliding to the right or down.

Same here but in every direction, I was playing and until today I had no problems. Now I can't navigate through the inventory nor choose a sign or an item to throw in the circle menu...

The cursor moves but it goes immediately back, even if I keep pulling the stick (I am playing on pc with a xbox360 pad), so the game shows that catches the input but it resets.

Actually since then I've found the same problem with other games. It has something to do with using the touchpad to scroll down instead of pressing the buttons, which is what I do now.

ManuelHatzl: Hallo i`ve been playing the Witcher 2 since two days and i have the problem, that the game kicks me to the desktop and i don`t know why.
I have searched in so many forums and there are many people with the same problem, but nobody knows really what to do.
I've been getting the same problem. For whatever reason, I'm suddenly dumped onto the desktop.

bitbutcher: I ran into this, but after some head scratching I realized the game wanted me to assign an unused mutagen.

Lifthrasil: I have the same problem. I tried restarting and I tried leveling up different skills and the problem still persists. The game is stuck at the 'press c to spend all talent points' instruction. The game also mentioned something about mutagens before, but I can't use any, because I don't have any (there was none in the chest and there are no enemy bodies to loot).
Another thing I noticed: when meditating before entering the arena, the screen shows that Geralt is level one. After the fights when leveling up, the level is shown as 8, but one has only one talent point to spend. Perhaps that is the problem? That the game expects you to spend several talent points when you have only one?

Well, whatever the problem is, please fix it!

bitbutcher:
You should have had a mutagen drop from the enemies immediately before this tutorial page. If you search the bodies you should have one. I broke this myself by applying the mutagen (or was it upgrading the character using the talent?) out of sequence, meaning that after doing the other one I didn't have the required component left.

(i.e. it is pick up mutagen>(tutorial:mutagen)>apply mutagen, and level up>(tutorial:level)>use talent... and if you do it so that the current tutorial item is active while the later one is 'done' it will never complete... seems to have been my fault though so I didn't grumble... I also figured that I "got" the process and no longer needed the tutorials at that point ;) )
I know it is not a bug, but the Kayran tentacle QTE is a common source of frustration for players, CD PROJEKT should fix that soon.
Finally played this game for the first time, but when it started up, the audio had a bit of static during the opening with all the company names on screen. After that, the following cutscene's audio with the archer seems to not be in sync with the video as the sound effects are heard before the targets are being launched and hit with the arrows.

EDIT: Okay, changed the screen resolution settings to about half of what it was by default and both sound problems were fixed, though when I did change them at first the launcher wouldn't start the game and I had to relaunch the launcher and try again to get it to work.

New glitch, does the background get replaced by an ugly bright blue sky for anyone else if you save at the beginning of At the Fore and load that save? (the middle choice Geralt gets at the beginning of the game)

I had the same issue and got help from support. The official Witcher pages have a hotfix for this problem, which seems to be an issue with .NET Framework 4. You can find it and other solutions here:

I'm not sure if this counts as a "bug", but I've noticed that on harder difficulty settings, the fist fights suddenly becoming so long! Just in the first one by the scaffold in Flotsam, it took a good 10 full minutes to get through it! Now I know there would be a lot of questions and suggestions about 'hitting the keys in time' or 'turning off hard QTE's' etc. But I'm not struggling to win these things - in fact it's blindingly easy, my only complaint is that it is taking TOO DAMN LONG!!!
Is there anyway to fix this?? A mod, and edit a cheat? Something!!! I don't want to change the difficulty level, because I find the lower settings a bit boring as far as combat goes and I also don't want to lose my Dark armors and weapons.
