View Full Version : Steam Updater Disappears...

April 1st, 2008, 02:42 AM
I was wondering if anyone could give me a hand with this... I installed Steam and everything seemed to go fine, however, when I went to run Steam the update got to 26% then closed then opened back up again and finished. But when I go to run Steam again it opens the updater for a second and closes again and nothing happens.... Any help would be much appreciated :)

You know how there's that comment at the top of this forum about checking the Wine Applications Database if you have problems, first?

Let's see what it says about Steam...

26% Bug Workaround:

Run this from the directory you installed Steam to:

nice -n 19 wine Steam.exe

If that doesn't work try this:

wine steamTmp.exe SelfUpdate "Steam.exe" 14

If all fails try this before the previous command:

rm ClientRegistry.blob

Does that work?

I've already tried that but it didn't work :/
