Portal 2 Failing to Start
Listen could somebody please have the decency to help the rest of us who can't run the game? I've tried reinstalling the game, checking the cache, deleting the bin and then recovering the missing files, and updating all drivers on my pc but to no avail. All the game does is start the launching program window and then does nothing. Every time I verify the cache it still says a file is missing. So far it's looking like it was a waste to buy Portal 2 on Steam.

have you tried deleting the ClientRegistry.blob file from the steam folder? This has solved a few load errors for me in the past. (maybe move the file to your desktop, with steam closed, the file should auto-regenerte on reload of client)

Didn't work.

have you degfraged the entire machine, run scandisk etc. Maybe you have harddrive fault?

I already defragged my hard drive and all my hardware checks out ok . I got this computer brand new 5 months ago. Every other source game I have runs fine. Portal 2 is the only one I'm having issues with.

Have you tried changing your file system by converting FAT discs to NTFS?

What? I downloaded through Steam.

have exactly the same problem.

Some people have worked out its might be a simple video file problem - i.e., one of the intro videos has become corrupt somehow and crashes you out or freezes. If this is the case, you could probably find another video from another source/game with the same extension (.avi or whatever it uses) and rename it to the P2 file. At least its something to rule out if it doesnt work.
No idea why that one file would corrupt, but meh, some pople think SCRUBS is funny so go figure.

From what I can gather now that forums are back up is that these problems have been on going since the games launch last year. You'd think Valve would have patched it or bothered to post some helpful articles by now.

Have the same problem, waist of money

Was in the spin cycle on this until I went to the library menu on steam (where you can see and launch all your steam games). Right click on the Portal 2 game and select properties. From the pop up window select the Beta tab. Subscribe to the beta and try to launch it again. This is what fixed it for me.
