as indicated in the title, I can't start the game, getting the message:
The following DLC folders are in a state of partial install: EXP1_Mercenaries
Verifying the install via steam was unsuccessfull, as was reinstalling the game.
After consulting the FAQ I found a similar problem, which might be solved by not starting the game via desktop-shortcut. I always started the game through steam though. I also don't own the mercenaries dlc.
The game has been installed for a few years before that, but I haven't played for a year or two. Up until now it has always worked out.
Would be nice if someone knows a solution. Thank you.
