Vista and Steam COD4 = No Go

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Ok, I just reinstalled Vista, all the updates, patches and drivers.

I load up Steam, transfer over COD4, and BAM it never launches the game!

Anyone have any fix for this?

I had the same problem with Steam games before. I uninstalled it and never used it again, until recently it magically worked.

Steam is like that. Works great sometimes, and doesn't work at all other times.

I am having the same issue. I loaded Vista and I can't even get Steam to download files without locking up. Otherwise Vista works great. Good thing I setup dual-boot so I can still run my games on XP until I figure out what is wrong...

Try deleting the clientreg.blob file in your steam folder then restart steam.

that fixes 99% of steam problems

You need to set the option to run as administrator in the compatibility menu or disable UAC...

Umm... it says NOT to do that on the Steam support site...

EDIT: I can run COD4 just fine w/out Steam BTW.
