Rebellion won't launch, no error message

Published on Sunday, February 10, 2019 By caswallonwatkins In Sins of a Solar Empire

So Sins has been one of my favorite games for years, however when I got a new computer recently. A MSI GV62 virtually every game I have on Steam, Origin & those downloaded from GOG work except for my favorite! 

I have Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion on Steam and every time I try and launch the game it does not freeze the computer or provide an error message. Steam says the game is running, however the computer appears to do nothing, simply remaining on the desktop. Thinking it could be a timing issue I've waited up to 10 minutes to no avail.

If I verify the integrity of the files one file always needs replacing. If I purge the game from the machine and download it again it seems to have the same issue again. I'm at a loss what to do. 

Conquering galaxies I can do, fixing complex software issues not so much. Has anyone else run into this particular issue? It would be a shame if I couldn't ever play Sins ever again.
