Can't open game through steam after update

Hi there,

Since I downloaded the new update (50292) I am not even able to open the game.

It looks like it is about to open, but then nothing happens and steam stops showing that I’m playing AoE2DE.

I feel like the only thing I have not tried yet, is reinstalling the game, since that would take a long time…
But of course if this is the only fix I’ll just have to live with it.

If anyone has had this bug to, and somehow fixed it, please respond below.

Thanks in advance.


A fix has been found!

To fix this, I had to go to my antivirus software and manually tell it that the steam folder for AoE2DE was allowed/OK and then I could open the game.
