Plague Inc [Error] Steam is not running. You must start steam in order to play this game
I bought the game last night and, for my surprise, i got the error below:

Steam is not running. You must start steam in order to play this game

I tried to reinstall the steam (deleting everything minus steamapps folder), restarting the computer, reinstalling the game..

RE: [Error] Steam is not running. You must start steam in order to play this game
Hmmm, it seams to want to look for folders that don't exist. it could be an issue with how steam was installed, try custom and install it somewhere else on the PC. if that won't help, then i don't know what else to do.

I did a rollback to windows 8 and reinstalled everything. Now it's working. Thank you very much, guys, for the attention!
