I have found an article which could help you here. Maybe try out some of these solutions. I think that there should be something wrong with your system if you are experiencing the same problem with other games as well.
It still never did anything :/ new laptop as well now, same thing happens. Just closes when it starts. So far no other issues with other games but this one on this new laptop.
I had the opportunity to test the game on a win 10 machine now (usually I am using win 7). Unfortunately it seems to not be running on win 10 for some reason. Maybe compatibility mode will help, I haven't tried it.
