Steamworks not working in Shipping build


I’ve made a multiplayer game that uses Steamworks for hosting games and finding your friends. It all works great in Development build, but if I try to make a Shipping build then the Steamworks element doesn’t work - I can’t see anyone in the friends list and I can’t connect to games.

Does anyone know if I’m meant to do anything different with a Shipping build, to get it working with Steam?

Any advice is massively appeciated!

So I found what I was doing wrong - I was launching the client from the build folder, which just doesn’t work. But if I upload it to Steam and run it through Steam itself, it works fine.
