I think the game patched last night I was playing, stopped for a moment then tried to restart, now the game won't go passed the initial menu screen. I can enter options, but clicking play just flashes the menu back up again. Can anyone help?

I have 16gb Ram, Core i7 processor, Nvidia 580 graphics, windows 7 (64)
Is there anyway to check the game version without entering the game?

To check the game version go to the Skyrim folder
Usually:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim

Right click on TESV.exe and select "Properties"
Click on the "Details" tab in the properties window
File and product version should give you the current game version (1.3.10.0)

As for the core problem, not sure beyond doing the standard verify game cache (May overwrite some custom configuration changes). Make sure you remove all mods/3rd party executables that you may have added to Skyrim too.

TESV.exe wont run - windows says incompatible program - does not run even with compatibility mode.

Thanks for your help though.

That worked! Thanks.

Here's what I did....

Delete TESV.EXE from C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim

Restart Steam,
Go to Games libary, open properties then verify local content.

Steam reloads the file.

Game starts, job Done!

Cheers
