View Full Version : Failed to start (Error 51)

I can't get Bard's Tale to start up, keeps giving me error 51. I've already tried the basics: reinstalled, defrag, verify, restarted Steam and my PC. Still doesn't work. Anyone else have the same problem?
Edit: Solved now. Turns out Avast was messing with it.

Crop circles maybe?
Sorry, couldn't help it...
Check if there is a program called Airfoil on the system. If there is, turn off Instant Hijack in it's options menu.

No, there's no Airfoil on my computer.

"If you have an Error 51 it means that your ClientRegistry.blob file in the Steam folder is corrupt. Try deleting that file and Steam should redownload the correct version of that file. This should fix your problem.
Additionally, if you get error 51 and replacing your ClientRegistry.blob file doesn't appear to fix the problem, check your firewall software. If the firewall software blocks some of steam's communication this can also lead to an error 51."
