In the vast majority of cases, the solution is to properly reinstall steam_api.dll on your PC, to the Windows system folder. Alternatively, some programs, notably PC games, require that the DLL file is placed in the game/application installation folder.
I am wondering if anyone can help me get AOEIIHD installed through steam onto my mac. I have been trying to run it through wine many times trying many different things but keep failing. The closest I got to actually starting the game was getting into steam through playonmac but then there were no words on the page only tiny squares in place of letters. I cannot tell if it is something I am doing or my computer, a 2011 Macbook Pro with El Capitan currently. I've downloaded and redownloaded and tried so many things that I have trouble finding the steam.exe to select when prompted to browse for a file. I've tried to follow the online stuff I read on guides to get this done but seem to be slipping up. Can anyone help me with a step by step process of how they got this to work, not leaving out detail in a way an amateur like myself won't screw up? Much appreciated thank you ahead of time if anyone can step up.
There were a few hiccups but everything is running well. The first time through the installation, after it has downloaded and you close the steam window, the playonlinux installation seems to freeze. I cancelled out of it and saw the new entry in the main playonlinux window. The first time I opened it it seemed stuck at "Validating Subscriptions". I closed it and reopened and everything works properly now. d2c66b5586
