I have a problem in Steam, and after posting several times there with no help, I thought I would try here.
When I try to launch certain games, I get a message next to the title (in Steam) that says "running", then "syncing", then nothing happens. All in a few seconds.
No game in task manager. This is happening on 3 different titles, 2 of which I was playing fine before, 1 is brand new.
To complicate things, I upgraded my gpu from an AMD hd5870 to the Nvidia GTX 970 and the games were working great on the older card (besides the brand new title, of coarse)
I have uninstalled all my Amd drivers as far as I can tell. I have up dated Windows, and my Nvidia drivers.
So, I had this problem before the new gpu, with one game, and I could launch it from the .exe file. I tried this with the new problem games and I get this message;
Then it says the program either cant run on windows or is corrupted (sorry I couldnt copy it)
This is the only error mssg I can find, and it only pops when I try to run what I think is the games exe file, as there is no file that ends in exe in there.
Sorry if this is a jumbled mess of info, Thanks in advance to all that wish to spend any time on this!
Heres my rig
Windows 10 home x64
AMD A-10 5800k APU
GTX 970 GPU-(MSI)
8g DDR 3 ram
When I added the new gpu, it installed; MSI Gaming app, MSI Live Update 6, GeForce Experience and some Google stuff.
Found a fix---
Had to open the Commonredist folder in game file and repair the x86 and x64 vcredist file.
