    Failed to start game Team Fortress 2 in Steam with Windows 8

    Downloaded and installed the Team Fortress 2 in my Windows 8 PC and now when I try to start the game I get the error message as “Failed to start game (App already running)”. What does it mean? I never started the game before? Is it some bug in Windows 8 or problem with the game? Someone please help me to fix this issue. Thank you.

    The Game is not running under Windows8, and the reasons might be varied.

    Compatibility issue, the downloaded game is incompatible to Windows 8 which needs latest version of the game.
    The source file of the game is virus infected.
    The installation was incomplete or damaged later.
    Sometimes the antivirus that is installed in the system stops the game from running , disable antivirus for once and try the game if it starts.

    Uninstall the game, download another latest version of the game, install with custom settings.

    Try to run the game now.
