Lunch install prompt
I don't know how to be more specific but does anyone know a way or why everytime i lunch Doom 3 BFG edition that i get the steam install prompt.

It should be a one time thing, it always had been and was for all my other games except this one. Everytime i lunch it i get the popup window asking me to install, what gives.

Checked the file intergraty and all is well.

If game runs fine after installation for you then you can fix that install prompt by yourself.
You need to run "regedit.exe" and open this path:
For 32bit OS
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Valve\Steam\Apps\208200
For 64bit OS
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WOW6432NODE\Valve\Steam\Apps\208200
And create DWORD value keys and set them to 1, so they will look like this:
directx
MSVC
Close regedit and start the game.
