Steam validating game cache stuck

As stated, that was my experience and that's what happened.

Do what you will with [email protected] To Hell I didn't say it is and I'm glad to hear your HDD is running well.

As Football Manager crashes you fear the worst is out.

The OS only deals with actual HDD fragmentation, which Steam has no knowledge about - for that to play a role, Steam would have to test file access times, which seems highly [email protected] Madsen Just because Steam has no knowledge of a problem does not mean the problem doesn't affect Steam and its decision to validate files.

Your statement is very informative, but doesn't necessarily mean that this is not the solution.

The Steam platform should run any required installers when the game is initially launched.

If this does not occur, you may need to launch them manually.

If a game launch is cancelled or interrupted, it is possible that your computer will be missing programs or services that the game needs to run.

This could include Direct X, Phys X, C components, or Windows Updates.But don’t worry, the help is here, thanks to our ultimate Football Manager troubleshooting guide.In this section we will compile all the troubleshooting issues from how to delete / clear cache in Football Manager to how to work-around issues with Steam Workshop.Steam want to validate the cache of Team fortress 2, everytime I launch it, pretty darn irritating. I can't support an issue specifically with regard to Windows 8 so if that's the issue, the only solution that I can propose is to wait until this software is officially supported on Windows 8. The following is based on my own experience with Steam doing this to me for TF2 and a similar case can be found here When I first installed TF2 some time ago on a Windows Vista install, it exhibited this behaviour for me. By defragmenting my disk and my game, I managed to resolved the issue.Frag at 0%, Running it in Win 8(VHD) Any way to skip it? S:-It is nowhere related to HDD failing in my case, though it might indicate data corruption in your's, see SMART data. You can try defragmenting the game files in Steam through the Local Files tab of Team Fortress 2's Properties page in the Steam Library, but I found using the OS's defragmentation tool was necessary if I recall. You may need to validate files manually after this, but it should hopefully be the last time.Feel free to Run steam as a Administrator and then launch Bioshock Infinitereconteamsters2, Have you tried to Verify Integrity of Game Cache?
