DLC Not Showing
After searching for what seems like hours i'm still unable to have my DLC shown on the launcher this is after having to battle the game not starting.

Things I have tried

Re-install
Downloading the patch
Verify local files

I'm only trying to have the create your own ruler DLC to show but nothing is working. Any ideas?

so when you right click on your CK2 in your Steam Library, and go to Properties, and then the DLC tab, what do you see?

If you purchased the DLC outside of Steam, you have to add the key to your Steam library. Other than that, I wouldn't know why something isn't showing up in your CK2 launcher.

You say its not showing, but is it actually working (are you able to change/edit a ruler before starting?)

Either way i think you best open up a ticket with steam about that one, particularly if it isnt showing nor working.

I see the DLC name, I bought it from Steam and it says I have it when I return to the steam dlc page.

And no i'm afraid i'm not it says I need the DLC to do that. And I'm new to the community how do a open up a ticket?

Thankyou for both the quick replies

I've not contacted steam for support for ages, i believe that this is there present support page.

https://support.steampowered.com/

I think it was different to that in the past though.

Also didn't show up here when i started the game for the first time. It has shown up for me as soon as i started the game for the second time, though.

This may sound silly but have you tried turning steam off and on again?

Then: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35
And then check if you can run the game after that.

Installed everything you listed here just to get the game working. Still no DLC on the list.

OK, now find ck2.exe and ck2game.exe under Steam. Right-click on both and set them to run as Admin user and (unless on win8) to disable desktop composition.

Also visit the Windows Update site and let it apply all .NET updates it wants to, for all .NET versions.

It now shows the DLC in the launcher but even when ticked it says "you need ruler DLC" when I go to edit an existing one.
