  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.

You wrote something that people could understand and made the subject intriguing for everyone. Really, great blog you have got here.
