Steam is arguably the best gaming client for Windows 10 PC. But it occasionally throws errors that prevent you from playing your favorite games.
For instance, when you’re trying to open a game, Steam displays the Preparing to launch message.
Here’s an example:
Normally, it doesn’t take long before it disappears and your game is fired up (unless you’re waiting for an update).
However, a lot of Steam users report that the Preparing to launch sequence takes forever, even after running all the required game updates, so it basically turns into an error message.
