Failed to get steamid

Hello


I bought an earth2160 this week through steam. Downloading and installation wen't fine. But now i have found my self from very annoying broblem. Every time when i try to start earth2160 this error message pop ups:

There was an error authorizing your Earth2160 install and under that first message reads: failed to get steamid .

Error message sugsested me to go earth2160 official bage but the information i founded there didin't help at all. I have uninstalled and then installed again and every time the same error message. I have also tryed to start the client from the game folder whitout sucsess. If i try to start the game from the folder i get this message: game not installed properly please re install the game.


Eh i have to say that i don't really know what is causing the broblem. Can anyone help me to solve this broblem ??.

Hi

Did a fresh install this morning by disabling my antivirus brogram just to see if it could interfere whit the installation but no luck though. Trying to do fresh install for steam and then download the game again.

Oh yes my system spec:

Amd athlon 64x2 4000+
2gb ddr2 memory
ati sapphire radeon 3870 512mb whit pixel and shaders 4.0 support

welcome to the club .



Still struglin to get this game to work. Updated my computer and graphics drivers today just to eliminate the bossiblity that it could be the broblem but no luck on that though still getting same error messages.

zussecks should have created a little better support steps for this kind of broblem because it dosen't mention anything about: failed to get steamid but it does mention this: There was an error authorizing your Earth2160 install.

Another one for the 'me too' list.

Haven't played this game in a while, thought I would give it another go, and got the 'steamid' message.

Don't think I've played it since I rebuilt my system a few months back.
