The new update did not fix this launch issue.
It has to be an issue with the program of the Splash screen, as completely bypassing it with the solution I linked does work, with steam not running in admin mode.
I tried setting the autorun.exe to run as admin, and the UAC does come up, but upon clicking play it just gets stuck in a loop of the splash screen popping back up.
The only difference between my laptop install and my desktop install, is that on the desktop, CMANO/NI (and all my games plus the actual install of Steam) are installed on a secondary internal HDD.
I should not have to, and will not do a reinstall onto my primary drive, which does not have a lot of space, as I have never had any issues with this setup until the 1.09 update (first with the license issue, but that was resolved quickly, and now this). My father also has CMANO on steam, but not NI, and also has it installed on a secondary internal drive, and his install has the same issue, and again, no problems until 1.09
And just to be clear, there are no error messages other than Steam saying that CMANO is already running, it is basically a case of not getting past the splash screen menu (clicking "Play Command: Modern Air Naval Operations" and that window just keeps coming back.
Steam admin mode works, but of course is not ideal, and bypassing the splash screen does work, with the linked solution, so from what I can tell it is an issue with the splash screen menu program.
