Steam won't launch game, just says "Performing first time setup" then stops

Recommended Posts

So pretty much summed up in the title I suppose. I bought this game from Steam when I saw it there, after having played the old game and watched the trailer etc. It downloaded fine, but whenever I try to play it, it just comes up with the "Performing firts time setup" and stops. The box goes away, and then it does nothing. I have been trying to fix it now for the last two days, and have tried everything that I can think of/ find on the internet about this sort of problem. I have verifeid the game's intergry multiple times, reset Steam itself, restarted my computer, reinstalled the game at least 3 times now, changed the game's compatibility mode to all of the OS's possible, run as admin, repaired the .NET framework twice, then redownloaded both types, then reset computer. Did nothing at all. I disable the UAP messages from Steam, I updated my computer, and reset, I updated all of my drivers and the graphics card, still nothing. There's probably still a few things I haven't tried yet, but I'm at a loss as to what. Can someone please help me with this? Anyone else using Steam had this problem, or even if not, how do I fix it apart from the things I've already done? If it helps, my computer's specs are below:

Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T6600 @ 2.2GHz

RAM: 4 GB

System type: 64-bit OS

Windows 7 Ultimate N, Service pack 1 is the edition of Windows as well

Can anyone please help? I bought the game, would kind've like to play it after f***ing around with it for the past two days!

Have done so after all of the updates I had to do (On Steam, reinstalling the drivers, updating the computer etc.) and it hasn't done anything. Was the first thing I tried too, turning it off and on again.

That's the thing, it can't be aproblme with with Steam. I've tested all of my other games and they all work fine, it's literally just the one. And yeah, I had tried anyway, but again nothing.

And it can't be a problem with the game because there are hundreds if not thousands of people who purchased the game from Steam and are playing it happily.

Try turning off your PC and leaving it off for a while to clear your RAM.

If the above does not work and your confident your running in Admin - then delete the game out of steam and redownload it - or just do a file check on it and allow it to update/correct any necessary files. It sounds like something in the install just got hosed. File consistency check would by the next step, followed by uninstall/reinstall.

i had the same problem until i went  to C:\Program Filesx86\Steam\steamapps\common\Rust 

look for the  app named RustClient it should have the rust sign on it.After that  right click and then click open it should come up with the rust config menu(Choose you settings)Then click play it should work.

 

I got till there but when i tried to join a server it came up with this

I'm having the same problem

Problem was officially gone, so try to launch steam as admin, maybe that gonna help. If not, try to install all additional software by yourself, it may be just steam server issue.  If none of try to verify game files, reinstall steam (no need to reinstall game).

I may be wrong, but I don't believe it was ever fixed for CCGM. There was a post from Dram regarding a fix being introduced for the same problem in the Take On Mars forum on Steam, but the date of that was later than even the beta of CCGM, and MUCH later than the current non-beta version.

That being said, you should make sure to opt into the CCGM beta. Go to the Library tab in Steam > right click Carrier Command > properties > betas and select "beta version" from the drop down menu, just in case it is fixed in the beta. Failing that, you can try the solution I posted on the other thread and on Steam if you want to try that.

 

Edit: This thread may not be about the same problem gladio is having, as his post on the other thread suggests he has the problem with non-default cluster size, and that is what I don't think has been fixed.

I have figured it out!

Navigate to C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\YOURGAME\_CommonRedist\ Then you have to search through that folder(could be in a few subfolders) and find something called installscript.vdf and delete it.

Your problems will be solved.

@johnnykluinec I did that, I got Hearts of Iron 4 with Steam, and I deleted that file, but it still wont work, it'll try Performing a first time setup, but before it'll ask to be allowed to make changes to my computer, and then it'll do a first time setup, but other than that, it won't run, I've even deleted installscript.vdf

I love playing games and when I have free time then like to play games. Last night I upgrade my windows 7 to Windows 10. But I found steam not opening windows 10. Then i thought may be which games i want to play on windows 10 don't have compatibility but after check the games compatibility which is ok. After internet browsing, i got the multiple solutions. 1st one is Relocating the Steam client. 2nd one Deleting the Appcache and last but not the least Removing the ClientRegistry.blob.
