For too long now, I've been completely unable to launch Skyrim. I have no mods installed (but I did in the past), and from what I know, nothing tampering with the game. I do not have any skyrim DLC installed.
My problem: I can press on the dragon icon on my desktop, or go into steam and press play, but nothing happens. Not even the launcher launches. If I click 'play' through steam multiple times in quick succession, a popup appears reading 'scanning for steam game updates' or whatever, then closes, and nothing else happens.
Is there a way to fix this?
