Reboot on Windows 8
 
I had some trouble running SR2: Reboot on Windows 8. It ran but there was no video. What I did to fix it was to find the program's sub-folder in the Program Files folder, change the permissions on the "cfg.txt" file so that I could write it and then change the line that says "Window=No" to "Window=True". This runs the program in window mode, which works perfectly. You may also have to change the permissions on the folder it resides in.

Does this mean the game is out in russia? If so is it any good (relative to the original) ?

He is speaking about SR2: Reboot that is available for many years, not the upcoming SR HD: A War Apart.

I gave full access to the shortcut & entire folder of the game. / compatible Xp/sp3 to that shortcut... still it does nothing.. every so often i can get the In-game Curser to appear and is anima, but nothing after that and it close's/crashes.. Win8 Pro.

Solution
 
I don't know if it helps for everyone but for me it worked.

I have windows 8.1 and when I started game in compatibility mode with Windows 98/Windows ME option it worked good when using full screen.

Step by step instruction

Go to place where you've got your game installed and find Ranger.exe, mostly common used
C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\Space Rangers\Ranger.exe
It can be somewhere else if you changed destination folder when installing Steam or your game.
Left click Ranger.exe -> Properties -> Compatibility -> Check box for Compatibility mode -> Choose Windows 98/Windows ME
Start game and enjoy.

You can try other compatibility modes but this worked for me.

One last information it works for Space Rangers 1 and 2 Reboot in my case.
