Steam Failed to Start game Unkown Error

posted by Xaladen on - Viewed by 641 users

I keep getting "failed to start game unkown error" on steam. I have tried everything from reinstalling to verifying files, to deleting the cache and everything in between.

Here is my download link to the diagnostic.

Thank you.

    I apologize for the inconvenience. Below are a few possible solutions:

    1) Ensure you have the latest drivers

    2) Restart your system

    3) Unplug your gamepad and all other USB devices other than keyboard/mouse (If you have USB speakers plugged in, please unplug them and plug headphones into the audio out jack)

    4) Verify your cache if you purchased through Steam (

    5) Run the game as admin

    6) Run the game in compatibility mode (We recommend Windows 98/ME)

    7) Reinstall the game

    8) Make sure that the Steam application is not set to a compatibility mode (right click on steam and click properties, then check compatibility, and make sure that it is not checked to play in a different OS)
