Steam always validating files
yet its been over 2 weeks and I have tried another 2 times and still no change.
All the other forums I have seen where people have a missing file doesn't seem to have it affecting their game :/ I have this problem too I do have mods installed but I don't think they are the problem but my additional issue is that steam won't let the game run the launcher opens, I hit play, and nothing happens the launcher just closes I've looked around the internet but it seems no one else is having the same thing happen.
I downloaded & installed Skyrim DG/HF/HD-DLC through Steam and when I try to verify cache, I keep getting an error that 1 file failed to validate.
I've tried the following: - Completely exiting Steam and logging back in - Rebooting my PC, - Verifying the game cache (multiple times) - Completely uninstalling Skyrim (including clearing out the registry entries with CCleaner) , then downloading and installing Skyrim again.
I have 4 other games installed on Steam and all of them are able to successfully validate all files.
I've tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling the offending game to no avail.
Here's what it looks like: After finding only way too many unsatisfactorily answered questions identical to this, I came to the conclusion that Steam sucks and just decided to live with it.
I had the same issue and what I did was uninstall Skyrim, right clicked its grayed out name, went to properties, Local Files, Browse local files and then I deleted everything that was in that file.
I proceeded to delete everything Skyrim related () I then re-installed the vanilla game again and it now runs like it was just this moment bought.
- My install path is C:\Steam I am not running any mods or utilities at this point, it is a completely vanilla install.
Skyrim will start through steam without any obvious issues, but I am worried this invalidated file may cause problems in the future.
