PS: I have try to install the VS Redistributable shown here (http://forums.svencoop.com/showthread.php/43812-Next-Engine-Game-Update-ETA-and-General-News?p=520800&viewfull=1#post520800) but it refuses cause i have "a newer version installed"

If you want uninstall than I suggest with Windows Clean up Installer or Revo Uninstaller than you can try to uninstall cleanly and reinstall again.

Using the uninstalls in Add/Remove Programs worked fine for me, did it not work for you SourceSkyBoxer?
Just realised in Windows 10 I have something like 10 required uninstalls :S (I'm not sure if trying to uninstall the oldest will allow them all to be removed)

Did you restart after (re)installing the redistributables?

There's a long standing issue with Steam where if you delay a Steam update, games will fail to launch after a given period of time, usually a couple of days. if you try to launch a game when this bug crops up, Steam will hang on the launching game dialog.

Glad to listen, did you fix it?

@Puchi, maybe he fixed it.

@Gigabyte, really? I never get issus. Impossible because Steam has problem? But my Steam works like normal. If I start game. Just wait to opening game launcher. I don't worry about Steam. I keep cool. If Steam doesn't show preparing dialog than you need check task manager and hl.exe or hl2.exe should exit by user from task manager. Now nothing has problem and it works fine.

If the game is already running, it will throw an error telling you it is. The delayed Steam update causing games to not launch and have the "game is launching" dialog stuck is a real problem. I've even tried to launch the game via the executable and it will just sit there and do nothing until Steam is restarted.
