BG Will not start
I just purchased this game today (Never played the original or it's sequel) and it will not start. I click on the play button and it does nothing, some when I press it, it says (as usual when you start a game) preparing to launch and then that screen closes and nothing happens.

Had the same problem. Maybe try adding BG to the DEP exception list, worked for me.
How to (for Sims 3, but works the same way for BG):

I've had the same problem for about 3 months. Tried all kinds of fixes. Was hoping someone could do something. Kind of ♥♥♥♥♥♥ I spent money on this thing and can't even play it.

Agreed. If there isn't some sort of fix within a month I'm going to Steam support to ask for a refund.

I've had the same issue with other games, and found out that they needed a more recent OS such as Vista or Seven.

For Baldur's Gate however, only Win 98 is supported :D

Hey guys, I had the same problem and found a solution. I clicked on the BGEE executable through the Steam folder and got an error about a missing .dll file. I used this link to download an exe, ran it, and it runs just fine now. I can even launch it through Steam. Hope this works for you guys, here's the link.

Neither this nor BG2 will start for me.

WHAT THE F*CK IS GOING ON, DEVS??

Game won't launch for me. I have a feeling I'm going to have to play a puzzle game with the files on my computer just to get it to start.

Caused by DEP for me but I wasn't able to get it to work via exceptions I had to disable it entirely. I probably won't be playing much of this game unless they patch it to work with DEP.
