Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 Discussion
What do you mean you "Internet Explorer isn't installed"? IE's underlying DLL's are critical components of Windows and do more than just display a web browser. IE is a dependency for trainer authentication and your OS would be crippled in administrative functionality.
If you meant turning it off through Add/Remove Features, this does not uninstall IE. Microsoft's documentation even states this during the prompt it gives you when applying the changes. Any programs that are dependent on IE (such as trainer authentication) will continue to use IE's core files (and if you have version 10 or above installed, this is the reason why it fails).
What makes the whole issue so confusing for me is that the Magic 2012 trainer is the only one I have tried which crashes at start-up. Recently I've played Skyrim again and the Magic successors 2014 and 2015, and their respective trainers worked perfectly well, as did all those others I tried over the last few years.

I just downloaded the trainer and ran it. it has already been updated to run on windows 8.
it ran fine here
I am not sure what could be blocking your trainer but it seems to function just fine here.
