This occurs when the Current Game is incorrectly configured.

This can happen when:

  • The Game Directory is set incorrectly so the tools cannot find the gameinfo.txt file.
  • A gameinfo.txt file for the game is missing or incorrect.
  • Installing/Restoring HL2 games from a backup that was created via the "Backup Games..." menu, but not having actually played the games after the install (HL2, EP1, etc).

How to fix this problem:

Alternitive:

  • If none of the previously stated work, check and see if you have recently changed your drive's letter to something different.
  • To fix the config go to X:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\bin, then open "GameConfig"
  • Open "GameConfig" and change all of the letters of the old drives to the current letter.
