I've downloaded and reinstalled the Steam version of Civilization (version on Windows 7) along with all of its DLCs: everything is marked as "Installed" and the custom maps are all there and working. The game runs fine as well.

However, neither the main menu nor any of the sub-menus have the "Scenarios" menu. I've searched everywhere with no luck, and I have no way of accessing any of the DLC content.

How can I fix this?

If you're talking about the Cradle of Civilization "scenarios" you may be interested in:… – agent86 Apr 8 '12 at 1:01
thx but the issue is that I the actual menu to get to the scenarios doesnt exist. – Tabwood Apr 8 '12 at 1:30
Can you take a screenshot of what you see after clicking Single Player on the main menu? – bwarner Apr 8 '12 at 2:03
Umm dont think this site supports me uploading images. – Tabwood Apr 8 '12 at 2:14
Menus after clicking "single player": Play Now, Set Up Game, Load Game, Tutorial... and Back – Tabwood Apr 8 '12 at 2:15

Have you tried verifying integrity?

Verify integrity of game cache

  1. Load Steam
  2. From the Library section, right-click on the game and select Properties from the menu.
  3. Select the Local files tab and click the Verify integrity of game cache... button.
  4. Steam will verify the game's files - this process may take several minutes.
  5. Once the process is completed, the Check Window will automatically exit.

If you had read the comments this was answered over a month ago. Youve brought up an old post :O – Doomsknight May 1 '12 at 8:43
@Doomsknight Comments are not answers: if someone leaves a comment that solves a problem, it's totally fair game to move it to the answer section so it's not buried. – user3389 May 1 '12 at 9:06
fair enough :). – Doomsknight May 1 '12 at 9:46
