    Hello sirs (and siresses)

    Perhaps one of you could help me with an issue I'm having with a game I installed yesterday but am yet to play :sigh:

    I've installed the official Olympics game London 2012 and it refuses to launch through Steam. Each time I click play nothing happens. I've tried re-installing the game, installing GPU drivers, checking Windows update and all the steps here: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=6138-QOAS-3235.

    Is there anything else I can do to get this game up and running? I'm running Windows XP

    This is going to be a Windows XP issue more than likely. Most games are dropping support for XP have you check system requirements in regards OS?

    I had a quick look at the game http://store.steampowered.com/app/71420/ and the minimum requirement for your OS is Windows Vista SP2 so I'm afraid that is most likely the cause of your problem! :(
    Are you able to upgrade to Windows 7?

    Aargh! There was no mention of Vista at least requirement on the back of the box. Rookie mistake :rolleyes:

    Sega's initial response to this problem didn't mention any such requirement either...

    Thank you for taking the time to help.

    For me XP was history when Vista beta was released. I found it far more stable and robust especially after the first service pack. Never looked back.
