Problem with win7

Postby EnsiferuM on Sun May 02, 2010 1:42 pm

I brought new pc with win7 and I installed css. The problem is that when I try to play, it doesnt launch, there comes only the window "Preparing to launch Counter-Strike: Source..." There wasnt any problems at installing..

Help me! v :scratch:

Do you use a software firewall? Might need to allow access for it.

Also try running as administrator

try putting CSS into windowed mode , see if it launches.

( to launch in windowed mode : Right click - properties on the game in Steam - set launch options (or used to be Advanced options) - add "-windowed" or "-sw" (without the "").)
Sometimes keeping an eye on your stats is not a good thing :P

Some things are painfully obvious, others must be made obvious... painfully

Try this...

Navigate to your steam apps folder...

1) C:\Program Files\Half Life 2 - CSS\SteamApps\ <your account name here> \counter-strike source
2) Find the application called "HL" (will show as application in the file list on windows 7)
3) Right-click and choose "properties"
4) Choose "Compatibility Mode" and select the option for "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and make sure that windows XP SP3 is selected in the drop-down menu
5) Click the option to "Run this program as an administrator" at the bottom of the window as well!

Try the game again...this MIGHT work, but no guarantees (however, it did work for me when I had trouble launching the game!)

Good luck

Are you trying to launch the game from the steam library or from a desktop/start menu shortcut?
