Executable signature verification failed

As the title suggests Im having some trouble.

When i go to launch the game, I can see my profile picture light up for about a second before it returns to blue, in the SamHD_TSE log is this

-------- START OF LOG --------

Any thoughts how to fix this?

"Verify game cache" should fix this.

Do you have Deepguard? Another user was having the exact same issues and the solution was to turn off Deepguard.

Here is the other forum topic on this: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...ight=signature

Not a very nice way to greet new players, though. Just got that 'verification failed' message, too.

Verifying game cache yielded one file that needed to be re-downloaded (and why is that? I've just downloaded the game for the first time!), and it still didn't work.

Re-verified, downloaded one file again, still didn't work.
Also, I had to wait through a re-install of C++ redist every time.

How many times do I have to go through that?

mrmotinjo, this error protects the game from starting if it is not correctly installed. If it weren't for this, the game would probably crash somewhere down the line, possibly when you are are just about to kill that last boss.

Can you please post your log?

I am very glad to report that the problem has, somewhat mysteriously, fixed itself. I tried running the game again later, and it ran just fine.
I'm not sure what exactly happened, as I haven't restarted my computer, or did anything else than just running the game again a few hours later.

Cheers!

Unhappy Same problem

Hey there!

I have the same problem with Serious Sam 3: BFE which I had bought recently. No logs available, the game just does not start and gives the error message "Executable signature verification failed". Cache verification finds one file that has to be reloaded. The file reloads, c++ installs and the game tries to execute, but the result is the same - error message "Executable signature verification failed".

Please advise!

WinXP Pro SP3, x86. CPU AMD Athlon-64 X2 6000+, 4Gb RAM

It is normal for one file to fail to validate. You should check Windows Update and make sure you have updated your root certificated.

Also make sure your system clock is correct.

About certificates, check the Serious Sam 3 FAQ, yes even if it's SSHD.
