I recently purchased the new Master of Orion from Steam and I can't seem to play the game.  When I start the game, I can see an intro movie with music, and then I get a short loading screen, and then a screen with a ringed planet framed by a star in the background, and the version of the game and date of last patch released is displayed in the upper right, but that is all.  I have no menu, nothing I click or key I press does anything, I can't even quit the game, I have to force it to shut down.  I am running Windows 7 and have an NVIDIA GPU (GTX 980 Ti).  I have tried to look online for a solution, and I have seen a couple of what looks like similar problems, and have tried a couple of their solutions, but it hasn't worked.  Here's what I've tried:

 

-Made sure any in game overlays are off

-I've uninstalled and reinstalled the game several times

-I've made sure my latest graphic drivers are up to date, and even tried a couple of older versions to see if that helped (it did not)

-I've checked to make sure I have Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable 2012 installed (I had it installed already, I tried repairing the installation and reinstalling it with no luck)

 

I think that's all I've tried.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much!  That thread fixed the problem (turns out I needed 2013 Visual C++ redistributable).  Thanks again!
