Problem with my game on Steam. An error occurred while updating the game (invalid app configuration)

Hi guys,

Anyone got experience with getting the game on steam?

I uploaded the game to steam on a depot. And when I install the beta of the game I get this error when trying to launch the game: “An error occured while updating Forests of Augusta (invalid app configuration)”

When I go to the steam install directory of the game and press FirstPersonArchery.exe the game runs just fine. But when I try to run it from the desktop shortcut or pressing play in my steam games library I get the error.

I take it my launch options are setup wrong. But I don’t know how to set it up. I’ve set the executable to FirstPersonArchery.exe which is in the root of the install directory…

What might be wrong here? Thanks in advance!

Found it! I just forgot to publish the game depot!

I am having same problem. How do I fix it?

First you will need to upload your game to steam, this video will help you.

Then you must configure the startup options of your application:

In your builds you must first set an uploaded build:

https://partner.steamgames.com/apps/builds/{YOUR_APPID}

  • Choose the branch (e.g. default)
  • Preview changes
  • Publish build now

Finally, go to the Publish tab and publish your changes

By the way, sometimes you will need to uninstall the game from Steam if the error message continues (Normally this is because the launch options are updated after downloading the game on Steam)
