TRA: Failed to find Steam
Hey Guys,
I bought all three TR Games. Only Underworld runs perfect.

TRA got the Error: Failed to find Steam!

Any Solution?

I solved it by adding the tra.exe and trl.exe files to the list of exceptions in DEP (Data Execution Prevention). To do this, open the Control Panel, go to System and click on the Advanced link on the panel. Open the Performance Settings, click on the Data Execution Prevention tab and select the second radio button. Then you can add tra.exe and trl.exe to the list.

Found it in

That fixed it for me, DEP was blocking it.

Already tried that, but DEP does not work for me =(

Hmm, I don't know then. Seems quite a few people are having this problem with various games it seems, I'll look into it some more and post more things up as I find them.

Found this, might be worth a shot to try since it'd be a quick copy/paste.

Navigate to your steam folder (in my case that is G:\Steam\) and copy steam.dll
(right click on steam.dll and choose copy)
now navigate to the games directory
steamapps\common\sid meier's pirates!\
and paste the file here (right click on an empty space and select paste)

It's for Sid Meier's Pirates, but the OP said he/she has had to do it for several games, so it might work if you do it for the TRA and TRL games?

(did a quick edit to give credit to OP)

Several games I had purchase in the past has this problem. If you play a game that doesn't have this error first then switch to a game that does have the error, the error will stop the game from loading. The best thing to do is just restart steam, and problem should fix it self.
