Me too Ivo. usually it works when I try again too. Do all your other Steam Games work Dustin, as in you are sure it is ONLY GTRE that is the problem? Hope its working now...

It's just GTRE that's doing this and I've tried again several times. Thinking of re-installing Steam (using the beta at the moment)...

Dustin - Ross' answer made me think - could it be that your PC 'thinks' the game is already running? Has the PC been compleately shut down, not just a restart, standby or shut down then immediately (less than a minute) started since you started getting this message? I have had strange problems like this that won't go away with restarts or shut down and start again - but have cleared following a either an overnight shut down or a shutdown - disconect power supply - press on button (while still unplugged to use any residual power) - then plug in and start up.. I think its to do with clearing memory totally and restarts don't give time for everything to totally clear..

Also somewhere in Steam is an option to 'check game file integrity' or something along those lines - I think it might be in the menu if you right click on a game, although I am not logged in at the moment so can't find it - you could try running that too.

I closed all of the processes related to Steam and such, turned off steam, restarted, etc. Clicked on GTRE a few hours ago and it worked so cool :)

Try the following: logoff and shutdown steam, then go to your steam folder and delete these files:

AppUpdateStats.blob
ClientRegistry.blob


Then restart steam. You will be prompted for login and password again, and it should work.

It happened a couple of times to me and this always solved the problem.

It seems shutting steam down and restarting he computer fixed my problem. Not really sure but it's working so that's all that matters to me right now :)

Sometimes, when I have this problem, restarting steam is not always enough.

So if it happens to you one day, try the above procedure ;)
