So here you are.
You heard about all the accolades this adventure game received, and decided to take advantage of a Steam deal. After downloading all five episodes, you try to check out what all the fuss is about only to discover that the damn game doesn’t launch on your Windows 8 box. Well, here’s how you fix that.
The Walking Dead does not launch on Windows 8.
The Walking Dead does not have controller support running under Windows 8.
Download the “dinput8.dll” file and place it in the following folder:
<Steam directory>\steamapps\common\The Walking Dead\
And that’s it. The game should now launch with controller support.
