    Right click on the game name in your game list in Steam and select properties. From that window select "local files" -> "verify integrity of game files" to have steam download any corrupt files again.

    It means you anti virus may have shat on the file.. amongst other possibilities..

    Go into steam, right click PC in the library, select properties, select local files, then verify integrity of game files.


    It should sort the issue (if not, then delete the original file, then verify)

    Make sure your AV has an exclusion for the Project CARS install folder

    What's your Windows version, Appie? And is it 32bit or 64bit?

    It is 64bit. An other problem now, steam everytime stops downloading, so the files are not complete. Or there is no pCars64.exe in the files! Wow this all is getting very frustrating.

    What anti virus are you using and have you set up an exclusion for the Project CARS install folder(s)


    Edit, Glad you've fixed it and, my timing is terrible !


    Shouldn't make any difference where it's installed really, I have PC1 and PC2 installed on C, D, W and Z drives..
