I just download ESF and the ESF beta and i can' play either one. I'v searched and searched but i can't find the executable to start the game. I see an "uninstall" .exe but there isn't one to start the game. I even told the installer to place a shortcut on my steam games screen and it's still not there.

Can someone please help?

Edit- Sorry i meant to put this in help and support. can i mod please move it? thanks.

Thats because you have to launch it from Steam.

There isn't supposed to be a .exe. Have you tried restarting Steam after installing?

Make sure you've run HL once from steam. Then install. It should automatically take care of everything. Then open steam. If you're on a 64 bit version of windows, make sure it installs to the right directory, IE C:\Program Files (x86)\steam\steamapps\XXXXXXXXX\Half-Life

STEAM doesnt update the games list untill you restart it. So you probably just have to close steam completely, and then start it up again.
