Start up problem on steam

Unread postby digdog135 » Tue Feb 12, 2013 11:23 am

I played the demo off steam and it worked fine despite other posts on this forum. I really enjoyed the game it just what I've been looking for but when I bought the game it loaded onto the main menu and I loaded a campaign but then the game crashed.

I then tried to play it again and this message came up

"An error occurred while updating Unity of Command (disk read error)"

So I re installed the whole game and it crashed before it even stared.

Are there any solutions?

I'm not sure, could be a Steam error or a hardware problem. Are you saying that after the reinstall, you cannot start the game at all?

No I'm saying it goes through the same process after each re install and I have a bit more info after the first crash (after re installing) I realized that a file disappeared it is the start up application. so then I verify game cache and try to play the game again and the message quoted in my first post comes up.

Could be an antivirus application silently removing uoc.exe from your drive. These antivirus apps seem to be often triggered by Steam DRM (as used in the full game, but not the demo, which would explain why the demo had no problems).

Please check your antivirus settings and add an exception for uoc.exe in that directory.
