Game will not start.

Postby GDOG4448 » Tue 17 Jun 2014 00:31

Every time I open up Steam, it gives me the activation code (which I copy to clipboard) but fails to actually open up the game. What's the problem?

So, you don't even see the intro video, right?

Can you navigate to [...]\Steam\SteamApps\common\Wargame Red Dragon and launch the game via the wargame3.exe - what error message do you get?

I have the same issue. The error message I get after starting it from the wargame3.exe is:

"The program can't start because MSVCP110.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."

I just spent hours and hours downloading the game on steam, so I really don't want to delete the local content and download it again, only to have the same error..... Help?

What is wrong with you?? I answered this thread because the OP did not mention what the error is / was. And 99.99% chance that it is that... Besides, the other threads I read about this did not offer a proper solution. So please, don't flame or troll me for no reason...

SOLUTION: Well it's actually the game which is missing this DLL file so somehow the installation file must have gotten corrupted. I reinstalled the VC++ package but that did not help... So I uninstalled the game and proceeded to download it again from Steam. After this fresh installation, the game launched and is now working fine. So your best bet is to try this first as it worked for me and it was not anything else.
