What exactly is happening? Can you provide a dxdiag? Do other games/applications fail to work on your system?

Try this. Go to the games properties and click on the local files tab. click verify integrity of game cashe. If there is any corrupted files it will re-download them. I hope this helps!

Alright once I do that how would would I go about re-downloading them ?

Not working for me either. I've uninstalled/reinstalled like 20 times, tried running it in compatibility mode, etc. etc. Anyone find a fix for this yet?
Synackk Dec 27, 2012 @ 10:23pm 
Haine, how do these games specifically fail? Do they give an error message? Just exit without error? Blue screen of death?

same error for me .. even disabling the triple buffering would not even work

I switched vertical sync to "Adaptiv" or "Off" in my nvidia control panel. Works for me. Hope this helps :/

I can confirm that this is the fix that worked for me (x86 version, even though I run windows 7 x64). I remember cleaning up my installed programs a week ago and may have removed the Visual C++ redisrtibutable package from my computer.

The problem I had was cave story would not even open, I would click 'play', it would look like its about to open and then I would be bought back to the steam application. No error messages or indication of what went wrong. Seems like Cave Story requires this package installed.

Thanks jim150.
