Windows 7 SP1 64 bit, C++ redistrib installed, DirectX is up-to-date, etc.


Had T:A installed several months ago, uninstalled it completely (no format of the disk thought, so My Documents/My Games files remained there).

Installed it through Steam yesterday, now I can't launch the game.

a) Launching from Steam :
Hi-Rez/Steam Interface
Cannot find the Hi-Rez installation
[ OK ]
b) Launching TribesAscend.exe directly :
Failed to find default engine.ini file to retrieve My Documents subdirectory to use. Force quitting.
[ OK ]
Steam install did not reinstall the Hi-Rez service (that should be visible in msconfig) nor created/modified the files in the My Documents>My Games>Tribes Ascend folder.

Launching the InstallHirezService.exe installer tells me "Hi-Rez Studios Games" is already installed, only asking if I want to uninstall it entirely.

Verifying the game's cache on Steam tells me all files were validated.

TL;DR: the Steam install for Tribes: Ascend is poorly implemented.
