Steam says updating but does nothing
It may also be necessary to see a local PC technician for help with your individual configuration.
What should I do if Steam is crashing, not opening correctly or closing immediately after launching?
As with Windows, if a game won't launch this is often caused by corruption in your extracted game files.
Please see our Verify Integrity of Game Files article for instructions on verifying your game cache.
There are occasions when crashing issues are not necessarily related to user configurations.
These crashes need to be addressed by Steam developers through client updates.
