New install of the game will not launch in steam

Postby AutoxZ06 » Sun Mar 10, 2019 4:27 am

After installing the new game I get the following error box when I try to launch it:
An error occured in Uplink.
Could not initialize Steam: Function not found.

Uninstalling and reinstalling does not help. Other Introversion games work fine.

Thanks

This place looks dead...

Anyhow, if someone else stumbles upon this problem, here is a fix.
Go to the command line and create a hardlink of steam.dll to the Uplink install folder (or simply copy the file if your file system does not support hardlinks).

Note: your install path may be different than mine, adjust accordingly:

Code: Select all

fsutil hardlink create D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Uplink\steam.dll D:\SteamLibrary\steam.dll

Thanks for the tip. There are always a lot of problems with Steam. I can’t understand why. When I play through playstation everything works fine for me. I recently talked about this with friends and they also confirmed this diagnosis.

This is a common choice for a gamer. I saw on the example of friends how often errors occur when playing through Steam. The mass has never guaranteed a good quality product. Moreover, new Gaming Controllers, even more, help me achieve excellence in games. I chose a programmable option and it's just super.

Reinstalling Steam helped me with this or try to check the cache integrity. I had the same problem and I just did nothing. I began to write my essay instead of this. Although I prefer to pay for essay and spend time with a great game. Check the home page of the writing service and make sure that it is much more convenient than writing yourself. By the way, write in support of the game. Maybe they will help you with this problem. Or create a discussion in Steam.
