) This happened when I was trying to make Portal 2 and Stanley pabs together and I deleted some files accidentally.So I clicked the Verify thing and I could play Stanley pabs again! Seems like if Verify checks against the files I downloaded during installation, then it should have picked up on the executable [email protected] Sounds like it was missing the proper directory structure, or that a file got corrupted somehow.
I was wrong, though, since the validation found no problems with the installation and the game continued to not launch from the same error.
This is just merely one way to fix the issue at hand.
It's the most direct way to solve the issue and I hope that you're as successful as I was. I can't get past my opening menu on Skyrim no matter what I do, I have tried uninstalling Skyrim and steam and have deleted all mods and files remaining, I disable UAC permissions, and I have verified game cache several times where it says: 1 file failed verification, it will be reacquired.
Does anyone know how I can find out which file Steam is referring to (the message does not inform me), and how to get Steam to correctly validate this file?
Some other info I forgot to mention in case it is relevant: - During the first download, Steam hard froze on me and I needed to reboot my PC - After reboot, download continued but 3 files were not validated. I find the right option, run it and it says 1 file failed to validate and will be reaquired. I've tried any combination of reloading and restarting with no luck.
