Just had the same problem, the fix is to right click on the game, properties, set launch options, and then type -changedir it should work fine after that.

I did that -changedir thing, and it worked okay, then I closed it and tried to load it again. Now it comes up as "Steam Error - Unable to load Steam.dll"

Copy the file Steam.dll from the \Steam directory to the \Steam\SteamApps\Common\Plants vs Zombies directory.


EDIT: So annoying, it worked fine just 9 hours ago... :/

Plants Vs. Zombies Start Up Error

Hi,
I Too had the same problem. The "-changedir" command does solve it. Thanks for advice.
