    I received Space Engineers this evening as gift over steam. Download and install went on without a hitch, but upon launching the game I received this notification: "Space Engineers - application error occurred. For More information please see application log..."

    Upon checking the log I found this error: 2014-07-22 23:33:11.584 - Thread: 1 -> Application error: Checksum file is missing, cannot verify game integrity!

    I've tried verifying the cache with steam, Uninstalling and Reinstalling, updating my .NET Framework. Are there any other steps I can take to solve this problem?

    Full application log can be made available upon request.

    On a hunch I installed the game to my aging laptop, and got the exact same error as before, only this time when I checked the Log, it stated the following: Checksum file is missing, game will run as usual but file integrity won't be verified.

    Contrary to the log entry, the game does not run as usual, in fact it does not run at all. Which leads me to my original question, where did the Checksum file go, and where can I get a replacement?

    Not sure if this will help, but I had the same error after the last patch. I emptied out my mods folder of everything except my skybox and it ran fine after that. I know the last patch messed the mods up somehow and they are working to fix that, hopefully this will help.

    Are we supposed to have things in our mods folder by default because I haven't installed any mods?

    I believe there is a folder with a bunch of numbers that you're supposed to have, I have since I've found it, deleted it. It's caused me no issues, but it might be related to the whole checksum/verify files thing.

    You could try.

    1: Go to AppData\Roaming\SpaceEngineers\Saves
    2: Copy all files inside this saves directory to some backup location.
    3: Uninstall Space Engineers
    4: Go to C:\YOURINSTALLPATH\Steam\steamapps\common
    5: Delete SpaceEngineers if the folder is still there after uninstall
    6: Go to the AppData\Roaming folder
    7: Delete the SpaceEngineers folder
    8: Empty your recycle bin
    9: Reset your computer
    10: Reinstall Space Engineers

    That's the most thorough I could think of being without messing with registry stuff, which is dangerous and you shouldn't do it if you don't know how the registry works very very well.

    I tried the above stated method. It did not solve my problem, can anyone tell me what a Checksum file is or does?

    Just wondering but does it usually take over a month to get a response from the support team other wise it would seem this problem is a problem they either don't know how or maybe do not want to fix
