Hey TimTom, which version are you playing the Steam version or the non-Steam version?

Make sure you have the latest updater if you are using non-Steam and haven't played since a long time ago, the older update might not work any more:
http://skynations.net/?page=download

If you are on Windows Vista or higher. Try running it, clicking the the Start button. In the search type in "Event Viewer", and click it. Once open, click "Windows Logs" on the right hand side bar then "Application" beneath it. Find the latest crash in this list related to SkyNations.exe or possibly SkyNationsLauncher which will have ".NET" in its name and paste the error here. It'll give me something a bit better to go on.

I did what you've told me but there is no crash to find and I'm using the Steam version. I already had problems with starting Sky Nations but the things you've told me the last time are not working anymore. I already un- and re-installed it but it didnt work. Maybe there could be something else.

It not starting up through Steam with no crash log in Windows Event viewer is quite strange, it can't end abruptly without at least something in the Event Viewer. The only thing I can think it could be is an Anti-Virus or similar program removing or blocking the executable. You'll need to check this yourself with your given antivirus. You can find the Sky Nations executable in "[Your Steam Install]\SteamApps\common\Sky Nations" called "SkyNations.exe" if you need to add it to an allow list or something similar.

In the other thread you posted some time ago you were missing the runtimes(which in theory should already be installed on your PC). They should leave a crash log in event viewer if they're missing but you could try installing them just in case from here:
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... x?id=40784
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... x?id=20914
http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download ... aspx?id=35

Though the nature of the crash does seem like an external program deleting or blocking the executable.

I've allowed it to the list from my anti virus but its still not working. Since the last time I had a problem with starting you have added programms to the file which I already repaired or reinstalled maybe I should clean the folder again and reinstall Sky Nations.

The only other thing I can recommend is right clicking the game in the Steam game's list and clicking "Properties". Then in the properties window go to the "Local Files" tab and click "Verify Integrity of Game Cache" which will force steam to go through each file and make sure they're correct and redownload corrupted or missing ones. If the antivirus or something else is still removing the files somehow, I'm not sure what I can suggest.
