Running Skyrim with Windows 8.1

Skyrim is NOT compatible with Windows 8.1. In order to get it to run correctly, you need to run it in Windows 7 or Windows 8 compatibility mode. It launches in windowed mode, but it works.

You can also make sure your video drivers are up-to-date. I updated my Intel HD Graphics 4000 driver (the default that Skyrim goes to), but I still get a blinking screen.

Gotta love Microsoft's idea of getting people "updated." Sigh
