    The other day a friend and I decided to have a game of L4D2 although for some strange reason the game would start but then crash.
    Whilst searching for a fix, a solution was found which involved using the System file scanner to repair system files.
    The trouble is that with recent builds the SFC has strangely refused to work. This solution however worked for me and may work for you:

    Let us know if this worked for you too.

    Considering the way these preview builds are being modified on the fly, is it really a good idea to run an SFC? Since there does not appear to be a Microsoft server with the latest files for access, using the .iso may put some files back prior to the patches installed with it.

    I guess one could hold off from using it unless you really needed to like I did the other day...
