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.
