    This was a temporary oversight on our part with the humble keys. If you restart steam now it should be resolved.



  • This will be some very long 5 minutes, downloading! :3



  • it doesnt works… i restarted steam and nothing still missing exe…

    Where did you make your purchase of Deadliest Warrior Goikuz?



  • Hey I am having the same problem. I bought the game from this site. It would be great if you could help.



  • I’m having the same issue but I purchased through Steam back in March this year…not the humble bundle. I am even on a newly reformatted system and did a fresh install of the game. Running on Win 8.1 pro x64. Had same issue on Win 8 pro x64. What do I do?

    If you have not specifically purchased Deadliest Warrior then you aren’t able to join in on the early access. If you only own Chivalry you will get this error when trying to load up the expansion.



  • Same Problem here, and the steam forums– this weekend supposed to be a freeplay weekend for deadliest warrior-- but some of us cant start it, just getting the can’t start the game “Missing Executable file”.

    Tryed to re-check files, restart steam etc.



  • Hello, I get the same error message. I bought “$29.99 - Medieval Warfare + Deadliest Warrior Expansion Pack” from the Humble store. While the Deadliest Warrior Beta runs great, the base game does not.

    Trying to play “Chivalry: Medieval Warfare” and “Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Beta” both return the “Failed to start game (missing executable)” error message. I found out that the UE3Redist.exe is missing, and in fact in the “chivalrymedievalwarfare” directory, nothing but a “_CommonRedist” folder exists - steam only downloaded 164MB of data. It contains the following exe files:

    • dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe
    • DXSETUP.exe
    • vcredist_x86.exe
    • vcredist_x64.exe

    I ran everything in it, as per these suggestions. For the “chivalrymedievalwarfarebeta” directory, the only exe files are:

    • ALPHA.exe
    • dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe
    • DXSETUP.exe
    • vcredist_x86.exe
    • vcredist_x64.exe

    As I said, I ran all of those files, and the UE3Redist.exe is missing. The “ALPHA.exe” file runs the Deadliest Warrior Beta, which does work. Again, the problem is that vanilla Chivalry (Chivalry: Medieval Warfare) does not work.

    I have tried everything I could find online. I started here, and when none of that worked I filed a ticket with steam, who sent me to this page. I tried everything listed everywhere, including removing and re-installing the games numerous times, Microsoft net framework, and steam itself. I even removed all my games from steam. I turned off AVG, I ran steam as admin, I’ve opted into all the different types of beta, I’ve verified integrity of game cache, I’ve deleted the “appcache” directory from steam, I’ve restarted my computer… I have tried everything I could think of.
