i have a new laptop which runs on vista, which im not to clear on. i have just brought the new football manager game which reqs a program called 'STEAM VALVE' when i try to install the game i get an error saying ' steam.exe(main exception):unable to load libary steam.dll' this means nothing to me. i have read on the net that its something to do with firewall's or router settings which is where i need help.
i tried to install the game on my desktop which operates XP and i had no problems so i know it nothing to do with my internet or router.
sorry to go on abit, but all help will be gratefull as i have done everything

Download and install the "Steam" program here.
click here
And see if installs afterwards.

Make sure your laptop is connected to the internet before you install steam.
