Unable to Add Non-Steam Game to Library



  • 'No Such Interface Supported'

    When I try to add Bionic Commando: Rearmed (purchased via GamersGate) to Steam, I get the following error message:

    No such interface supported

    What the heck does that mean? And is there a workaround?


    This may or may not be relevant, but the Gamersgate installer installed the game to the 'windows games' directory, which seems to behave differently from the rest of the system.

    This is what I see when I view the shortcut properties:

    EDIT:

    Here is a very informative chat conversation that should give you lots of more information about this that I can't be bothered to accurately record here.



  • Locate the .exe of your game, right click it, Send To -> Desktop Shortcut and add that one to Steam.

    Also, BC:R requires adminstrator privildeges to run (this screenshot of yours suggests this), so you may have to run Steam as admin.

    (I don't know if Steam respects a shortcut that is set to run as admin or whether this can be set somehow)
