Hello OCN,
I have this trouble with windows compatibility issues. Under Steam/Properties I unchecked all compatiblity boxes. I even removed it from the registry. I do not want to do a clean install of steam cuz that will take a long time. Can someone suggest another solution as reinstalling will be a last resort for me?

rep for help

A clean install of steam does not take a long time. Just take the steamapps folder out of whichever folder your copy of steam is installed in, uninstall steam, reinstall, move the folder back in, and then do a cache verification on all of your games. About half of them will have a short 30 second download to fix them, everything else will remain intact.

Double check that folder name though, I'm not on my steam computer right now.

So long as you grab the right folder, and verify the cache of each game, yep.

I just did it while moving steam over to my SSD, and that's going from one different file system to the other. Everything works fine.
