    With windows 7/vista just hit the start button/orb/start menu and type the word "run" in and hit enter.

    Count me among those who say thank you! What kind of stupid design is this from microsoft - just forcing some crap on people without giving them a real chance to do anything about it. *grrrr*

    But thanks

    I recently downloaded fabel 3 through steam and when i try to play it before it loads a message pops up that says improper shutdown detected then the game starts up gets all the way to the main menu then when i thry to play it it trys to load but as it loads the screen goes black and it goes back to windows. I have treid reinstaling several times (fabel and steam) i have gone through every steam troubleshoot list, downloaded every driver and update they told me. i have posted on the steam forums and lionhead forums and nobody has been able to help. i tried to change the compatibility setings by folowing this forum but it hasent changed any thing. I am not great with things of this nature so if you could help it would be very apriciated.

    Hey,
    So whenever I get to step 3 which is looking for an entry with a path to steam.exe I get stuck. Only 3 entries come up, 2 of which are for bit torrent and the other is default.. Not sure if I was in the right place looking or if I had to do something that I didn't do. Thanks.

    Thank you for taking the time to post this. I see it's from a while ago but it still works on Windows 7 32bit, just in case anyone was wondering.
