July 1st, 2007, 05:01 AM
Hi I have googled and searched and found a few topics regarding my problem...but no answers.
Here is the error i get:
SteamStartup() failed: SteamStartup(0xf,0x0034E064) failed with error 1:
The registry is in use by another process, timeout expired.
I am running Feisty Fawn.

Try reinstalling steam + wine would be my solution (you can backup your *.gcf files beforehand so you don't have to redownload them).

I get this error constantly when using Steam. Reinstalling did not help but I've found a way to get Half-Life 2 based games to work most of the time.
If I run Half-Life 2, Counter Strike: Source, Day of Defeat Source, of Sin Episodes: Emergence (all Half-Life 2 based games), and I get that error, here is what I do
I run the original counter-strike, click new game, let it load up a game so that I am in a map of CS by myself. Loading up a multiplayer game will work too. Then I quit out and try to run the Half-Life 2 based game. 80% of the time, it works.
If it doesn't work, running another Half-Life 2 based game works. I'll load up Sin, load my quicksave, quit out of Sin, and then suddenly Half-Life 2 will work properly.
It's a huge pain and it's been happening for about 6 versions of Wine now.
