[SOLVED] Game Crashes Immediatelly after the Launch

I run Windows 8 x64.
Game crashes immediately after start. Screen goes black like something loads up, but then game crashes.
First season and 400 days work perfectly fine! Only season two is flawed.

Please, help to resolve this issue. Thank you.

    Problem signature:
    P1: TheWalkingDead2.exe
    P4: DINPUT8.dll

    On Windows 8 the game crashes if joysticks/gamepads are connected. That bug is fixed in Windows 8.1, available for free in the Windows 8 Store.
    If you don't want to upgrade yet, you can try an unofficial workaround. In short, by downloading and extracting this zip file, and copying the dinput8.dll next to the games .exe, you should be able to use the controller normally. Make sure you delete that dinput8.dll after updating to Windows 8.1, to avoid possible problems in the future.
