  4. I got a different error after enabling Compatibility Mode, something to do with "Can't create iFS Filesystem" or something like that. Then in the same Compatibility Dialog Box, I also checked "Run this program as an administrator" and Voila! Running fine now.
    Also, if you have nosteam, you'll need to add the switches -steam -console after the shortcut path in the shortcut properties. e.g. "C:\Half-Life 2\hl2.exe" -steam -console

  7. At Anonymous, the reason is because you are launching from the Desktop, it needs to be launched from the Steam environment.
