Hey, don't know if this was answered somewhere, searched around with no answers.

I was playing Payday 2(Great game ::D ) using a RVTFiX. After playing, decided to play css, which i own. i get 'Steam beta must be running'. Quick solution is to restart steam.

this seems to happen for a lot of the non-steam programs for many other games, and I'm wondering what is happening, and is it safe to have a legit acc logged in?

The emu you mentioned might overwrite steam Process identifier (PID) with its own PID on registry, when you close the game, it doesn't set back to steam PID. When starting the game, the game try to find the steam but found emu PID which no longer exists on process list.

It shouldn't harm your account... but to be on safe side, don't use steam when playing with emu.

In that case, you might find this handy...

  1. @echo off
  2. rem Created by syahmixp
  3.  
  4. set process=steam.exe
  5. set steamclientdll=YOUR_STEAM_PATH\steamclient.dll
  6. set steamclientdll64=YOUR_STEAM_PATH\steamclient64.dll
  7.  
  8.  
  9. for /f "tokens=2" %%i in ('tasklist /nh /fi "imagename eq %process%" 2^>nul') do set PID=%%i
  10.  
  11. echo Setting PID to %PID%
  12.  
  13. reg add HKCU\Software\Valve\Steam\ActiveProcess /v pid /t REG_DWORD /d %PID% /f
  14. reg add HKCU\Software\Valve\Steam\ActiveProcess /v SteamClientDll /t REG_SZ /d "%steamclientdll%" /f
  15. reg add HKCU\Software\Valve\Steam\ActiveProcess /v SteamClientDll64 /t REG_SZ /d "%steamclientdll64%" /f
  16.  


Just save somewhare as RestoreSteamPID.bat and execute once after playing with emu. No need to restart steam.
