Dungeon Siege 3
Posted 19 June 2011 - 01:27 PM
I pre-ordered DS3 through Steam and been eager to play it. No problems with the download and install part. But when I try to launch the game I get the this message "Dungeon Siege III failed to start (error code 51).
Has anyone got this problem, and even better a solution/fix?
Tried most things from updating directX to framework and Microsoft Visual C++ and I still get the same error, even re-installed the game.
I have even tried in the "Steam settings" to run "Verify integrity of game cache" and the result is:
Validating Steam files - 100% complete
- 1 files failed to validate and will be reaquired.
I installed and played the demo via Steam and that worked just fine, but the retail just ainīt working. Been reading alot of threads and tried almost everything.
Intel Dual Core 2 - 3 ghz
GTX 250 Nvidia (updated with latest drivers 275.33)
4 gb ram
Win 7 x64
Drivers/software/OS are all up to date.
Thanks for any help/advice in advance.

i suppose you have tried restarting steam?
Yes, ran the "Verify integrity of game cache" and started the game - error code 51
Ran the "Verify integrity of game cache" and restarted steam and then started DS3 - error code 51
Even changed my time code/area ect in windows to English (US) - error code 51
Obviously there is a file missing somewhere, so I can just hope that this gets fixed in the coming patch.

...Reinstalled? It seems to be a Steam Error more than an error with the game; check up some other threads that have had the issue (Google Error code 51; seems to be a Directx issue);
I do thank you so very much, it works just fine now
Problem is with F-secure - How to:
Are you using F-Secure Internet Security 20XX?
If "yes", try the following:
Go into the options menu, put the program into the exception list of the real time scanner of F-Secure. The problem with F-Secure and error code 51 concerns many games, also Toki tori.
All you have to do is to add the entire "Dungeon Siege III" folder and thatīs it.
Works great for me now.
Thank you again, Chasted... I am soo happy now
