    Hi,

    First off, thank's for the info regarding the registry key.

    When I first saw this compatibility warning I clicked cancel by accident (out of habit). Of course in this case pressing cancel "permanently ignores this warning and continues." I don't see any way to enable the warning again. I can go ahead and delete the registry key but without the warning I don't know whether this is actually resolving the problem. Does anyone know where this setting is stored, perhap there's a config file I can tweak?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Turns out the setting for the warning is in the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Valve/Steam/IgnoreCompatMode (for the value 1 is ignore, 0 is show warning)

    Removing the key in the first post solved the compatibility problem, thanks!

    It appears that I am not the first to run across this post and been inspired to create an account just to thank you. I believe this action also fixed another issue I was having with Crysis. I haven't tried to play it yet...but, that is the only other problem I've had with any software on my new laptop, and Crysis files existed in where you directed me. Thank you a million times. I shall return!!!

    Thanks Zero Hour, I had this same problem, tried reinstalling steam, and several other things. I'm pretty tech savvy, but still couldn't get it to run no matter what I tried. I joined this forum to say thanks, and would love it if you would add me in steam. (Not to act like a begging noob though. PM Me if you want to add me, I don't publicly give out my steam ID.)

    Thank you very much Zero Hour. Like others, I joined to say thank you and I'll be coming back here again for computer headaches. I would of started to try re-installing Steam, trying system restore, and most likely ending up pulling my hair out. Finding your post here saved me a lot of grief. This Windows 7 can be annoying to work with. I had to enable the run command in the start menu as it was hidden by default.

    Thanks. I just developed this problem today, and spent about 5 minutes exhausting my limited tech-knowledge on the subject. I joined just to say thank you and that this was the quickest, easiest, most unproblematic fix I've ever seen on how to fix a problem.

    and the easier way to do this is to right click the steam.exe and select PROPERTIES not compatibility, then there will be a compatibility tab, click apply these settings for all users, then uncheck the box, but thanks anyway
