    Hi everybody, hope you can help me, the other day I tried to install a game in my windows vista, and just at the end, when the installation process ask me about installing directX, I refused to install it, cause I have the latest version, but when I wanted to play, I search the folder and all the files were there, except the main exe file, I thought it was an installation problem but only for that game, then I tried to install another game and it happened the same, there are no exe files. this is new to me because I have installed a lot of games, I dont know if I have a virus or what can it be, hope you can help me, thank you!

    I suggest you re-install it this time and install DirectX as well, it will only install any extra DX files that you do not already have, for example, some updated files or specific files for that game. Then you should see the game .exe files.

    Hum, still sounds as if the game didn't fully install again. Are you using Windows XP or Vista? Does the game appear in the Steam client?
