Can't even play the game
When i want to start the game up, i see the Grid2 logo, than a black screen with Grid2 logo and after that the game crashes. It gives a error saying that the program is already active, which confuses me?? I uninstalled the game and installed it again. I even deleted the appcache folder, which could be the problem. Any solutions??

YE, same, black screen right from the start, and the only way I can quit it is through the task manager. I just want to play a game I've paid for and been waiting for for ages, but no, someone has to put something stupid in to feck it up! Poor show steam/codemasters. (It also says I can play this offline, but it auto-connects to steam if you try running it from disc, lmfao).

I don't need the task manager, as the game shuts down itself after roughly 10 seconds :P

Works perfectly for me, so must be something about your systems. You should post your specs and look for similarities.

ok try this go to the steam directory and find the grid2 exe right click and click on compatability, then make sure the run as administrator box is tisked,then right click on the icon again and select the option to create a desktop icon,,once that is done verify the files and make sure nothing is missing, now do this i know it sounds dumb but it worked for me.
Shut down your computer wait 30 seconds to clear memmory then restart,,,start steam then run the game from the desktop icon than you just created............

Now I would like to understand why this should make a difference. Could you please explain?
Just so I know?

Hi, I have the exact same problem, except, sometimes the error message also complains about not be able to connect to the steam servers. Do not know if these two are related or just a coincidence.

centurie: Thanks for the suggestions, tried it but it did not work.

Also tried to verify the files but no success there either... I'm using Windows 7 on an Acer Aspire TimelineX 3820TG.

Was looking forward to playing this game today when I have some free time... but apparently you can't expect games to work on the release date.
