    Thanks I think I have solved the issue, tried everything booting into safe mode, clean boot, installed updates, verified cache files but to no avail...

    The problem I think was when I installed the very latest beta AMD Drivers during setup they gave an error saying windows installer has stopped working msixec.exe something like that but the setup completed successfully (This always happened since a long ago whenever I tried to install drivers) anyway I installed windows 8.1 with update 1 and updated it installed 13.9 AMD drivers as suggested by phone man , installed nvidia physyx, while dotnet and vcredist, flashplayer refused to install as they were already installed in the new OS.. no worry...

    The game ran fine but the again after updating to the latest beta AMD drivers and moving the game folder to another location the same thing started to happen again... then I uninstalled VCREDIST 2008 and 2010 (which may came with new drivers?) and finally set the entire game folder permission to full access by my username ...

    Now Violah... Thanks everyone for help it may come handy to many.... Problem solved....

    Now the problem is back now it says crashed because of msvcr100.dll even though everything is installed. This is the first game which I failed to run in my life. I think it has issues with win8 / amd cards as many ppl are failed to run this.
