I've seen other users with similar problems, but I'm still unable to fix mine.
I have the Steam version of Rome: Total War Gold Edition on my computer. I wish to install Rome: Total Realism VII: The Fate of Empires on my computer, but I am encountering trouble.
I installed the RTR VII: FOE mod into the RTW file on SteamApps, and the download went normally. Everything seems to have installed correctly. However, when I try to launch the game via the RTR desktop shortcut, I get a "Failed to find Steam" error. Then a mysterious internet window opens up and sends me to steampowered.com. I believe I have to modify the launch options in Steam, but so far all my attempts at fixing the problem have failed.
My operating system is Windows Vista, Rome:Total War is the Steam version as opposed to the store-bought game, and I would really appreciate any help. This is why I always prefer to buy the retail version of computer games.....
