steamwebhelper.exe not responding

Anyone getting steamwebhelper not responding on Mac Sonoma 14.0, Crossover 23.6?


Yes, I've got the same problem on Mac Monterey 12.7.1. I'm getting a dialogue box with a nummber of options (Restart Steam, Exit Steam, Restart Steamwebhelper.exe, ...) but nothing I tried helped.

Edit: strange, but it works for me again. I installed Steam in a new bottle, still the same problem. Then I quit Crossover and the next time I started it up, Steam asked me "Access To Desktop". I agreed and now looks like it works again for me.

Same problem suddenly appeared today after a suspiciously fast "Updating Steam". Seems to be not very widespread but without a clear cause or working solution... How can we help diagnose this?

M2 Macbook Air, Sonoma 14.2, Crossover 23.7.1

Has anyone managed to solve this?

I have been getting the same error since Feb. 28th 2024 on Linux Debian. Updated to Crossover 24.0.0 on the 22nd and I did not have any problems with steam or crossover for the next 4 days. Followed all of the old recommendations on Steam sight regarding steamwebhelper not responding. including updating drivers. I am still working the problem on my system and I will report here if I find a solution.

Found that installing steam in a new bottle added the libpcsclitel version1.9.9.2 to the system allowed steam to open to then restore from backups and/or run "verify integrity of game files" fixed the problem.

I also got the same problem but a bit different, when Im launching DiRT 3 it use Steam and this problem shows up. But when launching the normal Steam it works. It is weird and also the games I downloaded on steam doesn't work. IDK y
