I just purchased this game. After the download it will never run. The EXE just keeps crashing. I figured it was a bad download but after deleting the local content and downloading again it is still not working. Any ideas? I also tried turning off all firewalls and AV. Thanks for any help!

for those who has crashing game - install MSVC 2010 redist (I thought Steam installs that automatically, but I guess somehow it doesn't for SS:BR).

The issue with owning something that hasn't been bought is fixed, or so I was reported by Steam.

I have a later version of MSVC 2010 installed but the game crashes instantly when I try and run it. Any suggestions?

It doesn't need to be "latest", because when I compiled game's binary I might not have the latest MSVC installed. Please try installing what comes with the game.

There was one case in the history of the game when someone couldn't get the game running no matter what.

Also maybe antivirus software blocks the game. Maybe video driver has something to do with the crash.

I installed the game through Steam so I assume the MSVC wa installed alongside the rest of the game files. But because of the comments in the post of Sept 2013 above, I sought to install manually only to get the message that I already have a leter version of MSVC 2010 installed. I have the latest drivers for my GPU, and it works fine with other older games. No evidence of interference with antivirus, indeed scans do not flag up the game, and the logs do not show any blockages.

I have wiped out the version of MSVC on my machine, and installed the version that came with the game. Still crashes instantly.
I have readed online that steel storm chapter 1 is free, and burning steel is chapter 2, do burning steel have chapter 1 in it? or I need to play the freeware ?

Burning Retribution has all content from the free release.
