Hello all,

 

Spent all of yesterday trying to get it to run but all I am getting is "steam client is not running" every time I try to run Kingdom Come Deliverance through Vortex. Runs absolutely fine through Steam.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

I'm running windows 10, vortex and game are installed on c: in program files x86.

 

Thanks

What version of Vortex are you on?

 

It should launch both Steam and the game if Steam is not already running.

I have the latest version of vortex, have tried some older versions too, same problem. Steam is running already.

What happens if you navigate to the game folder and run the game's executable directly?

Do I not need to run the game through Vortex for the mods to work?

No, you don't, it's merely a convenience thing. As long as the mods are installed in/with Vortex, they should be fine.

 

If you could try running the game via the executable in the game folder and report if it is the same (message about Steam client), that would be helpful as it would give us an indication as to why it won't run trough Vortex currently?

Yea, game starts fine with the executable.

That's odd because Vortex essentially just runs the executable. Is there anything peculiar about your Steam account/setup?

Nope, scratch that, it isn't working through the executable. It's showing the same error.

Thanks, that is at least consistent. Are you running Vortex as admin perchance? (You shouldn't)
