Steam not starting up.

Postby Dr C on Mon Jul 06, 2009 7:48 pm

I am having a problem getting on to steam. I keep getting this error message. steam.exe (main exeception): Unable to load library Steam.dll

I have restarted my comp deleted blob files and did a fresh reinstall of steam as well. Nothing seems to have fixed it.

Any ideas how i can get it up and running again.

Thanks

Hi,

i just left it a day and it corrected itself. just some random steam stuff.

thats if my memory servers me correctly.

otherwise you already done everything i would have suggested you try.

I have the exact same problem, see my thread for suggestions people have made that didn't work for me but they might for you.
