I just installed from Steam and upon starting, I see the following Steam pop-up messages in this sequence:

Preparing to launch Anomaly Warzone Earth...

Anomaly Warzone Earth failed to start (error code 51).

Not sure what to do? Thanks for any help...

From reading some post on the Steam forum, I uninstalled a program called AirFoil. This did indeed get rid of the Error code 51.

BUT, now nothing happens after the Steam "preparing to load..." message.

This was also happening when Microsoft Visual were installed as different versions of Visual are crashing one another. So please uninstall the Visual and it should help. Please make sure to have latest DirectX as well. Thanks!
