View Full Version : Not able to use desktop icon to launch the game, only Steam works?

I purchased the game a couple days ago when it was on sale through Steam.

After it was done downloading I selected the option to have a shortcut placed on the desktop. Went to log into the game and after double clicking the pointer showed the little working circle and it never went to the game. Tried again, and nothing, So this time I went to the game folder located in the steam directory and right clicked the game .exe and sent it to my desktop. Clicked on it, the circle appeared for a second or two and again, nothing else happened.

So I went to the Steam window on my desktop and launched the game from there, which worked fine. So I right clicked the game at the Steam window after getting out of the game and sent a shortcut to the desktop, clicked on it, saw the circle and then nothing.

When purchased from Steam, does it only launch from the Steam window or is there a way to launch the game from a shortcut on your desktop or taskbar?
