Steam says updating but does nothing
This was written in 2010 by me, and today, in June 2017, the Mac Steam client is very buggy.A lot of people have to restart their computers when they try to play videos full screen (from games) and the whole web-view-wrapper kind of thing is a pain and more often than not requires close/reopen or reloads.Adding friends is a horrible experience and very confusing (nothing like Battle.net’s simplicity).
This is a sound surely as familiar to the residents of the Brunswick area of Brighton as are the constant squawks of seagulls fighting over the contents of their recycling boxes. However, at least we now know why – Valve have explained this particularly modern annoyance.
open steam Go explorer and go to your steam folder Rename the folder "appcache" to what ever you want shut down steam and restart steam Wait for the pictures of your games load. **AGAIN** untick "Enable steam cloud synchronization for games which support it" Then you can play games.
------------- if you restart steam you will have to do it all again as well....
There are over 40 different versions of the D3DX library for D3D9 alone, and many more for D3D10 and 11 as well.
Each game that uses the D3DX helper library is linked to a specific version.
