    Hi.
    I've just Update from Windows 8 to 8.1 Preview
    OS is amazing, but there are ONE game that doesn't work for me, its MOHW.
    It's a little weird because game work in Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 is only UPDATE/Service Pack for it so why is it not working?

    Other games, and apps work great, e.g (Crysis 3, Blackops 2, Bioshock)

    Advise me something please :)

    Edit:
    Another games doesn't work (America's Army Proving Grounds BETA, L.A Noire )

    In which way it's not working?
    It gives you an error? Or crashes after some time?
    I would first backup the folder MOHW in My Doccuments, then delete it and try again the game again. It contains the hardware configuration and can sometimes lead to troubles.

    It's giving error, about DirectX. This new WDDM1.3 and new DirectX stuff isn't compatible with MOH, probably BF3 will don't work too, but I don't have it.
    All games are original and Verified/Repair in Steam/Origin.
    So I don't know that the hell... It supposed to work.

    Windows 8.1 is just not 'only an update/Service Pack'. The kernel version changes, so there's a lot more to it:
    6.0 - Windows Vista
    6.1 - Windows 7
    6.2 - Windows 8
    6.3 - Windows 8.1


    Good to see that repairing/reinstalling MOHW worked for you. I'd try the same with the other games which don't run.
