I had this issue and solved it just now after about 4 hours of trial and error. Problem was also the graphic card for me, reinstalling its driver fixed the problem. I did not tought it was the GPU in the begining since i did not update it recently or anything it was already up to date that would result in a change i was not able to play games which i could before such as Monster Hunter World and some other older games like dark souls or diablo 2 were working fine.

I still do not know what coused the problem no windows update, or any significant change on PC but this was the fix for me. Last edited by Haginkaz ; 3 Jul, pm. I have a similar problem. However, all the games i have installed currently work fine but any new game i try to install just opens and then closes straight away. I have updated windows, graphics card drivers, i have ran the game in compatability mode and steam, verified cache, integrity so im very stuck at this point Its really weird because its only new games i download all the one i have previously downloaded are fine Any help is much appreciated.

Also, for example only, programs like CCleaner can be possibly conflicting with the games launching. Yea, those are definitely suspect to your problem, especially the Super AntiSpyware but also maybe Avast.

Every security process on your computer needs to be leaving Steam and games alone in real time scanning. Make exceptions in such programs for Steam and all the games. After you make the exceptions, you might need to verify the game files for all games that were affected, before testing the games. You should also make sure to remove those compatibility changes that you made depending on the game in question, as for most games, that should not be needed.

Older games for a newer operating system, maybe so, but not so much for newer games at all. Last edited by The Giving One ; 27 Nov, am. Per page: 15 30 Date Posted: 15 Jun, pm. Posts: Start a New Discussion. Discussions Rules and Guidelines.

Not sure if this will work, but I think I found a way, open the games local files and run it from there, then very quickly after the game hopefully opens, stop it learn more here steam and I think that works. Make a copy the file and name it copy. Last edited by Haginkaz ; 3 Jul, pm. When attempting to launch a Steam game, I am presented with the error message "Failed to start game app already running. Update drivers for your computer Make sure you have the nto drivers for the various components of your machine.

If you are currently participating in the Steam beta, try opting out and testing the issue again. Sometimes, the game may already be running under a different user account within your operating system. Change language. If a game won't launch, this is often caused by corruption in your extracted game files.
