    Thumbs up Steam: Fix the "Cannot Find Steam" with Some Pre 64 Bit Games on x64 Systems

    As users if 64 Bit Operating systems know some pre- 64 bit games comes up with the error "Cannot Find Steam" then opens your Internet Browser with store.steampowered.com due to the publisher not fixing it before passing it to steam

    This is how you fix it!

    1. Right-click on "Computer" and click on Properties.
    2. On the left click on "Advanced System Settings".
    3. In the Advanced tab, you'll see a button for "Environment Variables". Click it.
    4. In the upper section of that new window, you should see something like "User
      Variables for [your username]". Scroll through to find the one called "PATH".
    5. Highlight the entry for "PATH" and click "Edit...".
    6. You'll get a too-small text box that has a field on the top for "Variable Name"
      and a field under it for "Variable Value". Put your cursor into the "Variable Value"
      field and hit the [End] key so you know you're not inserting text in the middle of
      another entry. If you push the right arrow key it should not scroll.
    7. Add a semicolon ; to separate your new entry from the others.
      Correct -> ;
      Incorrect -> :
    8. Paste in the path to Steam, which for me on a default-install Windows 7 64 system is:
      C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam
    9. Press OK, and re-launch Steam so that it gets the new environment variables.
    10. Run the game normally!
