    Ghosts will not launch from Steam

      Like many other people, I am unable to even launch COD Ghosts from Steam. Upon double clicking a little box pops up informing me that COD Ghosts is not responding/is experiencing a problem. Trying not to be one just to complain, I have: updated my drivers, unintalled and reintstalled the game, verified the game cache, and even redownloaded DirectX11.


      My specs:


      Intel i5-2320 at 3.0 ghz

      8 GB of RAM

      Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti

      1 TB hard drive

      Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit


      I apologize if you folks are getting sick of hearing this same problem over and over again but I would really appreciate any updates or help!


      Thanks so much,

          Hi Dude,


          I have exaclty the same problem as yours but in my case not even the single player is working.


          Disabled Kasperghost Antivirus, Steam App started as Administrator, installed DX11, Visual C++ 2012 and Framework 4.0 included with game, installed the latest nvidia driver 331.65. I have also tried to unistall and reinstall all (Steam, and Call of Duty Ghost) no changes.


          I have also tried to launch the game from the .exe and I receive the following error:


          iw6sp64_ship.exe - Application Error


          The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application.

                I've got the exact same problem. My pc is good enough to run this game at high settings, my drivers are up to date and I tried all the things Steam told me to do. I can play other games using steam, especially cod ghosts.


                It'd be nice if someone could help us.

                    Have you tried to launch the .exe from the game folder?
