Steam not launching

I have installed steam via crossover 16.0.2 or w/e the latest version is, when I install it, it updates but after the updating steam box is done it goes away and steam never opens. I have tried doubling the icon bottle and nothing happens, I have tried right clicking and running command and nothing happens. Please help.

We are aware of this problem and have built and are testing a fix.  We hope to have a release which includes a fix for this very soon.

We pushed an update just a couple of hours ago.  Please give CrossOver 16.2.5 a try!

What host OS are you running?

For Linux (I am using Ubuntu) I remove[*] the crossover package, then install[*] the newly downloaded crossover package. All the contents of  the .cxoffice directory are unaffected and  you should carry on as before. For MacOS, I've not had one since the early naughties, but the principle should be the same.
[*] using your favourite software management system

The installation process is the same as https://www.codeweavers.com/support/wiki/linux/linuxtutorial/install or https://www.codeweavers.com/support/wiki/mac/mactutorial/install

Hi,

I tested it with 16.2.0 and was already working. Upgraded now to 16.2.5 and it still works. It may be so because Steam was already installed... or maybe not...

I also tried with a Windows XP and a WIndows 7 bottle (I play 2 different games, so I use these 2 different bottles for each).

Maybe it would be easier for people to help if you give more details: what is your bottle's Windows version, how did you install Steam (manually or by choosing Steam from the supported applications list...). Good luck!
