Game will not Start in Win 8.1

Game will not Start in Win 8.1
I can not start the game via the play button in Steam or via shortcut on Desktop with my 64 bit Windows 8.1 machine. Is there a remedy or workaround for this?

Please run oalinst.exe where Star Ruler is located. If that doesn't work, copy OpenAL32.dll from Windows/System32 to alongside StarRuler.exe
