Unable to start up the game


#1

Hello,

I have bought the game in steam and I am unable to start the game. A dialogue box comes up saying that it is preparing to launch but then nothing happens. I have searched the web and updated both my operating system and drivers. I have also tried verifying local files and it still will not work. Any other suggestions??

Thanks!

Sorry you are having issues getting the game working. Can you try the following?

  1. Steam->Right click Big Pharma -> Properties -> Uncheck “Enable Steam overlay in-game”
  2. Steam->Right click Big Pharma -> Properties -> Updates -> Uncheck “Enable Steam Cloud synchronisation for Big Pharma”
  3. Find Big Pharma.exe inside your steamapps folder and right-click->Properties->Compatibility->Tick run in administrator mode->OK

Let me know if any of these help. Also can find output_log.txt at the location below and copy and paste the contents inside a ‘code’ block in your next forum post.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Big Pharma\Big Pharma_Data\output_log.txt

Thanks!
