Hi,

I have just bought WITW via steam on Windows 10 and it is not starting. Press the "Play Gary Grigsby's War in the West" button on the start screen and then does nothing. Please Help !!!,

Many thanks, Simon

the game supports windows 10 and steam fine, it's just for some either there Anti Virus stops it from running or the pre requisites aren't or get stopped from being installed

here's my guide on how to install the site version, while steam it's different as that should do it all for you, the pre requisites are in the game install folder and may need re installing, and a reboot to work, and steam needs to be run as admin as well

more tips for the game and steam are,

Do you have Steam overlay enabled? If so please try disabling it.

Also besides running the game as admin, you might also have to run Steam client.

How to Run Steam as Administrator:

- Navigate your Steam installation file (By default, it is in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam).
- Right-click the Steam executable.
- Follow the above steps to set it to Run as Administrator.
- Restart Steam.
