In this tutorial, learn how to fix FATAL ERROR: Failed to Connect with Local Steam Client Process in Windows 10.
Solution 1: Verify Integrity of Game Files
The reason why this solution has its place at the top of the article is primarily because it’s easy to do it on your computer and it can solve the error in the simplest way possible. Some players have confirmed that, after the error started to appear, verifying the integrity of game files managed to find several files which were missing or corrupt and redownloading them helped fix the problematic game for good.
- Open your Steam PC client by double-clicking its shortcut on the Desktop or by searching for it in the Start menu simply by typing “Steam” after clicking the Start menu button or the Search (Cortana) button.
- After the Steam client opens, navigate to the Library tab in the Steam window at the menu located at the top of the window, and locate the problematic game’s entry in the list.
- Right-click the game’s icon in the library and choose the Properties option from the context menu which will open and make sure you navigate to the Local Files tab in the Properties window.
- Click the Verify Integrity of Game Files button at the bottom of the window and wait for the process to finish checking for your game files. The utility should download any missing files and you should reopen the problematic game afterwards to see if the “FATAL ERROR: Failed to connect with local Steam Client process” still appears.
