Does anyone have a solution to this. I am expereincing the same thing. Please someone help.
You aren't alone. I'm going through the same issue. One I thing I did notice on the community page at www.thewitcher.com is that they had to take down their registration servers today and they are slowly bringing them back online (the register and login links are greyed out right now too at the top of their home page).
I suspect I'll be needing to drop a line to them via e-mail to get this sussed out. In the meantime I'm removing/reinstalling all of the MS C++ redistributable packages for 2005, 2008 and 2010, to see if that helps, as well as downloading any direct X patches I may have missed. I'll report back here with anything I can figure out.
