First Game run issue - unable to create profile.

Recommended Posts


I purchased the GoTY edition of Dirt Rally 2.0 today and I am not able to get past the loading screen. 

Upon launching, it asks me to create a new Save as there is no save game found and when I select yes, it then throws and error " Save Failed". Upon clicking retry 100 times, still nothing happens. I have Windows 10  (logged in with microsoft account) and using Steam to play this game.

There are no special characters in the user profile and I am the administrator. Have restarted my system, verified the game file integrity twice but no luck.

Please help as this is very frustrating for me.

This could be caused my many things really.

Some suggestions I've had given to me:

  1. Try temporarily disabling Steam Cloud Sync
  2. Try temporarily disabling any Anti-Virus, and if it works tell the Anti-Virus scanner to not scan the folder in [3].
  3. Check your permissions and see if you're allowed to modify files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\*userid*\690790
  4. If [3] doesn't work and you've never had a savefile, close Steam fully (in the taskbar) and delete that folder.
