Game not Working?
So I bought this game from the Halloween sale, and after it installed I clicked play. It came up "Preparing to launch Trapped Dead" for a second, then disappeared, and nothing happens after that. Any advice?

First, try to launch another game from steam (if you cant, its probly your anti-virus or some other things)

Then, try using the .exe in ur Steam/SteamApps/common/TrappedDead (ur have more information on why its not working)

If everything fail, try reinstalling... if it doesnt work, I have no idea :) Hope this help!!
(have the same problem on my laptop right now, currently reinstalling...)

Okay, reinstalling didnt work, so i remembered when i clicked on the .exe, it gave me the following error: ''X3DAudio1_7,dll cannot be found'' . If you also get this error when lauching from the .exe, this means your DirectX is out of date and you have to update it!

Here's the link I used to update my DirectX: http://pcsupport.about.com/gi/o.htm?zi=1/XJ&zTi=1&sdn=pcsupport&cdn=compute&tm=19&f=10&su=p504.6.342.ip_&tt=7&bt=0&bts=1&zu=http%3A//www.microsoft.com/download/en/search.aspx%3Fq%3Ddirectx

Once I updated, the game worked like a charm. Hoped this helped! ;) Have fun in game.

Ive gone a month without any thing running. Then I turned all antivirus off and that seem to help.
