Can't Launch Grid? Try this solution.
If you've had similar issue where Grid doesn't launch, maybe try doing this:

1. Find where your Steam folder is. From the Steam folder > SteamApps > Common > Grid > openal
2. Run the application "oalinst" and install.

I have the non-Steam game and don't know if this applies, but have you tried the < -novirtual> mod (from disc readme):

" ii) The game does not launch

If you find that the game fails to start and does not display the GRID logo, we recommend altering the properties of the GRID application shortcut and adding the argument –novirtual to the end of the “Target:” box. For example:

"C:\Program Files\Codemasters\GRID\GRID.exe" -novirtual

This fixes an issue with certain Antivirus software and users running on XP64."

Unfortunately, can't edit the target for the application - that doesn't work for me. :(

Got it to work a different way. I'll edit the original post with the solution so others may find it.

What was your issue? Were you able to find the "OpenAL" on your computer? Or, could you not run the program "oalinst"? Or something else?
