Sleeping Dogs Steam BUG – How to Fix Steam Version


Sleeping Dos - How to Fix Steam Version

I recently purchased Sleeping Dogs on Steam. Before I go on I must say it is an AMAZING GAME. This is specially true if you can actually get it to work. For some reason people are having all these issues  with games that are a poor PC port. Sleeping Dogs seems to be one of those games. The good news is that I found a way to make it work and it will only take you less than 3 minutes. 

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Close Steam.
  • Find your Steam folder. It should look something like this:  Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common.
  • Select Sleeping Dogs and then the REDIST  and DXRedist directory.
  • Find the DXSetup.exe file. Run the  setup.
  • After you are done, start Steam.
  • Enjoy Sleeping Dogs.


In case you are a more visual persona, here’s a video I made:

  1. I was a big fan of this game. What problems were you running into? It may be good to get that out there to see what this fix applies to 😉

    I also had some issues, though. For me, I would CTD a lot. This was mostly related to running in SLI, though, so I don’t know if I should blame the game or nVidia. I would crash out either way when I would drive at high speeds, though, so be careful. I could usually see this coming because the frame rate would stutter just a little bit before HKShip.exe would crash.

    Overall though, I loved this game. I don’t finish many games but I did this one.

    For me the game would not load. After running that file it worked. After that, no crashes for me yet :] Running it on a Nvidia 560 TI

    The game IS AMAZING! I’m with you here, I have gaming ADD and barely finish games but I will finish this one! 😀

  3. Wonderful goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you’re just too excellent.
    I really like what you have acquired here,
    certainly like what you’re saying and the way in
    which you say it. You make it enjoyable and you still
    take care of to keep it smart. I can’t wait to read much more from you.
    This is actually a great site.
