Steam must be running to play this game.

Hello,

I have a problem with the error: Steam must be running to play this game.
When i want to play black ops i get the error. And YES i bought the game its official not downloaded.
I googled the problem and many others had the same.
But most of those guys downloaded the game.
They said:
-reboot your pc
-ctrl alt del process and quit steam.
-download steam again
-restart steam
-reinstall black ops

I did everything and none of those things worked.
Btw i also got the same problem with mw2 (also bought not downloaded)>

So can anyone please help me because this is really weird..

Greetz Keram

Do you launch the game within the Steam Library with the "Play" button?

try verify integrity of game cache and defragmenting game cache files through steam.

I get this sometimes when I try and launch it from a shortcut in my objectdock.

Simply killing the steam process and then re-opening Steam and then BLOPS seems to work for me...
