Europa Universalis: Rome - Gold Edition

"Fails To Start Game" as it says
Whenever I try to start playing Europa Universalis Rome, it says that there is an unknown error, and it won't start. I recently bought this game today, and it's expansion, both for $10.00 in a Gold Edition. Please Help. The website for support does nothing at all.

Hey Silent, I found out. In another discussion, there are 2 links to a microsoft enhancerm helping you run the game. Go downlaod them.

Enhancer*. Go to the "Don't start the game" discussion, and there will be 2 links to downloadable content to run the game. Go download them.

Same problem here. Purchased EU Rome and Vae Victis start of march 2013 and it worked once. Now I get the "Steam error" box with the nonsence message "Failed to start game (unknown error)"

Thanks for the tip - will try when I have time. I must admit that I gave up on steam and got the game from other "channels" - a true local installation - that worked, just like ye olde days :)

I too have been blighted by this error. I tried installing the Ms C++ packs recommended. I tried reinstalling. I tried verifying the cache. Nothing works. I will try the demo jink as a last resort. Why don't Steam/Paradox fix this?

There has been some glitches with Windows 7. The game kept on giving me "Failed to Start" until I downloaded the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86) from
