    Try closing steam, remove all the contents of the RACE 07 folder and restart steam. This would give you a clean fresh working installation.
  3. wouldnt that mean i have to download all the files again though

    Yep, definitely - might be the only solution, though. Clicking "remove local files" (guessing the translation ;)) in the game's (+addons, if applicable) context menu should do the same thing.

    However, first, you could try to check the game files - open up the game's properties, navigate to the last tab ("Local Files") and there should be an option to do just that :)
  5. thanks i'll try that
  6. still not working ive done a totally fresh install just the simbin titls no mods at all and it still wont launch the game

    Yikes.. well, the only thing left (that comes to my mind) would be your user profile, located in C:\Users\<username>\Documents\SimBin\Race 07

    You might want to move the folder somewhere else to preserve files, or just completely delete it. R07 should create a new one once it's started again

    edit: hah, few seconds too late, glad it's working again! :)

    If you would have tried the suggestion in #2 you don't have to redownload all the content :)

    It will simply unpack all the core files again and voila: fresh game.
