I have the Steam version of Saints Row 3. After the AMD logo shows up, I get a crash to desktop on both DX9 and DX10/11 versions. I also had the same problems with the character creator released earlier. I was able to solve that by copying the folder from my G drive, where Steam was intalled, to my C drive (main drive, ssd, limited space), but that did not work this time.
Here is my 32-bit dxdiag (before beta drivers): pastebin.com/rEFLfnmY
I just tried the latest posted beta drivers from nvidia as well and that didn't help either.
This is the output from the 64-bit dxdiag: pastebin.com/XkCvKBNN
I hope this issue can be resolved soon, I've really been looking forward to playing this game and now that it's out I can't.

Bump: I wanted to post an important update. I found a small work around for now:
- I replicated the entire Steam directory from my G: drive to my C: drive.
- I set compatiblity mode on Steam to require Administrator. You have to permanently ignore the check recommending against comaptiblity mode.
- I run game_launcher.exe from the C: drive and choose the version (DX 10/11 in my case)
- The UAC dialog pops up for Steam.exe: choose No. If you choose Yes, it still crashes.
I've not tested the game yet, but I wanted to post this in hopes someone from the dev team can read it and work out the problem.

Tries this but no luck for me.. still crashes after intro movies before getting to main menu.

I finally got past the video screens by forcing the DX11 executable in the game folder to compatibility mode with Vista or Windows 7, but now I can't start a campaign; it returns to the main menu after I've chosen difficulty.

i7 2600 + GTX 560 here.
Single 1080p display (projector).
Win 7 64 Bit. Latest Nvidia driver.
The game process ends immediately after starting.
This happens with both DX9 and DX10/11 versions.
I have tried using older drivers as well as the latest beta driver.
Trying the above workaround I can get the DX11 client to display an empty window for half a second before shutting down.
The DX9 version manages to bring up a black full screen before crashing immediately.
Very disappointing to see THQ ship a product that simply does not work on essential PC hardware.

Sorry to hear that this didn't work for others who had the same issues. So far everything works except for Saving for me now. I can't save/load the game due to some error with not enough space on the storage device. I've read a few people who also had that error.
Based on what I played so far though, all these pains of trying to play is definitly worth the wait. I was just amazed how much fun the game is starting out and really liked it. I hope these problems can be fixed so they don't take away from what otherwise might be one of the best games of the year.

I've confirmed my current problem was as I originally thougt.
First, I disabled UAC completely (requires reset, also make sure DEP is disabled).
Second, I copied Steam and SR3 to my C drive again, but this time I ran Steam from the C drive (I left my G Steam installed as normal). Upon running Steam and SR3, it updated Steam as well as SR3.
Now, I can run the game normally through Steam and Save Game works fine.
Everything seems to be working now, but this is a less than preferred solution since I have to now have Steam on two drives. My other Steam install works fine, which is good since my other games take up more space than I have avaliable on my SSD.
Arg, this was so frustrating, I hope it is fixed soon.

shouldnt have to do any of this. They just need to fix the game. Crap it is.

Yep same issue here, strangely I was able to run the game upon unlock at midnight no problem. But upon closing the game and then launching it again later once I had made a cuppa the game refuses to get to the main menu. Everytime I verify the .exes have problems. So I can only assume that there is a dodgy .exe change causing the problems.

I had this problem from the very beginning, then steam decided to download a 2GB patch which solved it.
But now, it's back again.
