Steam.exe(main exception): deleted Steam.exe but the file is still there?
When I tried reinstalling steam, I kept getting the following error: Steam.exe(main exception): ERROR: deted Steam.exe but the file is still there? The problem is that you won’t get elevated rights without the steamservice.exe being installed. I fixed it by extracting the files from SteamInstall.msi with 7zip.
- Right Click then choose extract to steaminstall\.
- Rename steam1.exe to steam.exe.
- Right Click steam.exe and choose properties. Click the compatability tab and check ‘run as administrator’.
- NDouble click steam.exe and it will try to update and fail.
- Exit the update and double click steamservice.exe.
Now it will install normally when you run steam.exe
