Same problem here but with Windows 7, I was just about to make my own thread when I saw yours. I tried various compatibility modes, I tried running as administrator, I reinstalled it, I redownloaded the installer and reinstalled it again, I installed it to a different directory... I'm out of ideas.
Having the same problem in XP. Tried the fix here:

but no luck.

For me, it may be an incompatibility issue as I am on a netbook turned desktop. The readme file warns that note/netbooks may not be compatible and that integrated graphics are not supported.

Thanks, I only had to do the first part.... seems like some kind of issue with automatic configuration not working. +rep for helping us, and here's hoping you find a solution for your computer. =)
I tried that fix also, but it didn't help me. :( I've wrestled this for hours and I can't figure it out. It should work.
ok, I just read the part of the readme file where it says it isn't compatible with laptop computers... Nice to find that out now. There isn't anything that says that on the storefront page. Good thing I only spent $2 on it.

I suspect it depends on the laptop. It runs just fine on my laptop.
Yeah, I'm using a laptop too. But I have an ATI Radeon graphics card, whereas most laptops have integrated ones. That's likely the problem.

We are now in 2017 and the issue is still here, googling the issue and found this thread, doesnt give me much hope on the game , also shows an extremely low survival for long term.
I am using macbookm pro, high sierra also radeon pro 460 4 Gb

I had the very same problem with King's Bounty: Crossworlds GOTY (the screen flickered a few times and nothing more happened).
(using a laptop with a Nvidia GPU, and games uses that Nvidia GPU by default setting)

and I found a fix for this: (it worked at least for me - my game launches and I can play just fine)

- go to %UserProfile%\Documents\My Games\Kings Bounty Crossworlds
- open the file game.ini with an editor
- the first two lines were:
setf ~screenresoultionx 0
setf ~screenresoultiony 0
- change that 0 values to your actual screen resolution and save the file. After this action my game launches just fine :)

in my case (1920*1080 screen resolution - I have an external screen connected to my laptop)
that two lines look like this:
setf ~screenresoultionx 1920
setf ~screenresoultiony 1080
