TESV.exe is missing

HI @ all,

I'm really confused right now.

I downloaded Skyrim yesterday via Steam and tried to launch it. So the Launcher opens up, I press play and nothing happend. Now I tried to defrag game cache and to validate it, but it didn't help at all, Steam always says everything would be all right. So I deleted the game and re-installed it via Steam, but same thing...

After searching the web I found several hints on startup problems which all didn't help until I finally realized that there is not TESV.exe in my game folder - Steam seems not to download it. I tried to re-install the game for about 5 times now, changing servers and stuff, but always the TESV.exe is missing...

Is there any chance to get Steam to download the whole game?

Thanks.

Did you also try to Delete Local Files and then re-installing the game?

The way MY game was installed is, it copied almost everything from disk, but tesv.exe was missing along with other files (around 400 MBs total) that were downloaded on first game start.

There's also the possibility of your antivirus silently deleting the exe. Check logs and see if it is the case.

And then there's also support that could maybe know something about it, so I'd write them just in case.
