I'm at my wits end. If I would've had any idea that I had to install Steam, I wouldn't have purchased Skyrim. I've been here before...Steam.
I'm all excited to play Skyrim. I insert the disk and run the installer...the Steam installer pops up. Wonderful! Well, maybe it'll be different this time. NOPE! The Skyrim hangs on Steam's "Preparing for first run. Configuring DirectX." I get a spinny thing for ever and nothing happens.
So, I go to the Steam's "Troubleshooting" web site, follow all of their instructions and the best I wind up with is an error 51. Game refused to start.
I went through this over a year ago when I plopped down a bunch of greenbacks on Dungeon Siege 3. Never did get it to run. Same Steam BS.
Can someone please help me get this running?
