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