[RESOLVED] I can't start AVWW on steam......Why?
« on: April 25, 2012, 02:28:32 AM »
Hi. I just bought AVWW on steam today and completed download.
But when I launched, it always showed error massage related to AVWW.exe.
I changed compatibility about .exe file, but it couldn't work......
How can I solve this problem?

The standard first thing to try is to verify the downloaded files by right-clicking the game in Steam and going to Properties -> Local Files -> Verify integrity of local cache. If any files are corrupt or missing, it will fetch them.

Welcome to the forums :)

Yes, the error message itself may help a lot.

Another thing you can try to help figure out what the problem could be is to try running the non-steam version of the game (you can download it from a link on this page: http://arcengames.com/w/index.php/avww-downloads ); your license key will work with both the steam and non-steam versions (and from anywhere else, for that matter).

Anyway, if the non-steam version works, that means the problem you're running into is probably related to the game's interaction with steam or (more likely) your particular installation from steam.  If it doesn't work, then it's probably not steam-related at all.
