Issues fixed[edit]

Failed to start game (app already running) error[edit]

Additional symptom: Task manager (or Process Explorer) shows the game appear in the task list, but it closes immediately.

Restart Steam.

Startup crash[edit]

Startup crashes pertain to PhysX v2.7.1. Uninstall PhysX, and reinstall the NVidia System PhysX software.

If the issue still persists from the official drivers, uninstall PhysX, and attempt to use a legacy installer (such as the one distributed with the game.) Follow the instructions for merging PhysX files from C:\Program Files (x86)\AGEIA Technologies\v2.7.1 to C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\PhysX\Engine\v2.7.1
