Orcs Must Die! won't launch - SOLVED

I've just tried to run Orcs Must Die!, but I had a problem. It wouldn't run at all, just launch the icon and then disappear quietly.

I found the solution in this FAQ by the game authors. It is fairly easy:
- Find the game on Steam (if you have a large list like me, might be easier to switch to Recently Played games first)
- Right-click on the game title
- Choose the Local Files tab
- Verify Integrity of Game Cache

There were 8 files with problems on mine. After that the game ran fine. And I have to say that so far I like it a lot - see Orcs Must Die! Review for my opinion.

Seconded, 8 files, suspect issue is an upgrade from demo.

Fix confirmed! I had 7 files, probably from the same source.

Thank you. There have been a lot of other fixes that weren't very good out there. I am so glad I found this one because it was the easiest and best. :)
