[4.15.3] Steam Overlay Not Showing

This is my first time attempting to integrate steam sdk to UE4 for my game (blueprint only). I am pretty sure I missed an important step but I couldn’t figure out which one after repeating the guides for more than 10+ times. If anyone could point me in the right direction, it will be greatly appreciated!

Here is what I did so far:

  1. Downloaded steam sdk v141

  2. Copied sdk folder to D:\Epic Games\UE_4.15\Engine\Source\ThirdParty\Steamworks\Steamv141

  3. Copied the files for both win32 sdk and steam install directory to D:\Epic Games\UE_4.15\Engine\Binaries\ThirdParty\Steamworks\Steamv141\Win32


  1. Copied the files for both win64 sdk and steam install directory to D:\Epic Games\UE_4.15\Engine\Binaries\ThirdParty\Steamworks\Steamv141\Win64


  1. Added the below lines to MySteamProject\Config\DefaultEngine.ini





  2. Enabled online subsystem through Unreal 4 Editor > Settings > Plugins > Online Platform

  1. Restart the editor

  2. Have steam running in background

  3. Run game in standalone mode

  4. When pressing shift+tab, no steam overlay shows up

I can not find three files in the redistributable_bin: “steamclient64.dll”, “vstdlib_s64.dll”, “vstdlib_s64.dll”.

You need to install Advanced Steam Sessions plugin

they are in your steam install directory - C:/Programfiles(x86)/steam
