press PLAY button and nothing happen

Technical Support
Just purchase SC remastered, after install and press PLAY button and nothing happen. please help
If you haven't tried this, I remember a fix from the older StarCraft games where you need to set it in compatibility mode for Windows 95. Navigate to your StarCraft game (most likely in C Drive), right click the StarCraft(dot)exe, click on properties, open the Compatibility tab, check the box that enables you to run the compatibility, and select Windows 95. Good luck.
Starcraft needs to be run as administrator, are you playing on an office computer?
HI! I have the same problem. I selected windows 95 but nothing. please help me. Yesterday I was updated and it's gone
Same problem with me after update to version in OS Window 10, Window reporting StarCraft.exe fail to run. ever run "scan and repair" or "compatibility" still not working.
Everything was fine for me until yesterday. Now, I press play and it says "Launching....." then "Playing Now" for a second then nothing. Just goes right back to tab. Tried "scan & repair" and it says nothing found. Using Windows 10.
