CS:GO won't launch
Hey , my Counter Strike Global Offensive wont start , I press play and nothing happens. But I know it's "running" because I can see it in task manager. I guess the problem is that it will start , it just doesn't show as a window or anything , I can only see it in task manager. Any help would be appreciated , thanks.

It could be an antivirus preventing the game from launching.

If you haven't already, start by verifying your game cache.

Information: Steam Support > Verify Game Cache Files (GCF)


ETA: You can also try these suggestions (which Kryzoid posted below at the same time as my edit xD): Steam Support > Games do not run after 'Preparing to Launch'

Sorry about that. One last idea is to try the steps in this article. It fixes most problems.

Have you tried verifying the game cache and/or re-installing?

Are you still having these problems and if so, have you found a fix? I have the same problem and have tried everything to fix it (that includes steam guides and uninstalling CSGO and steam). Any help will be appreciated a lot, thank you.

ok i can tell you this i had the same problem, i brought it to my local computer fixing company and they fixed it in an hour or so. Again, after the update yesterday or today the same thing happened, and now i have to bring it back to them. I believe they said its a scripting error so thats the advice i give u
