Sorry if posted in the wrong place.

I installed Windows through Boot Camp before, all working fine. Then I tried to install The Orange Box, but I constantly keep getting an error. "Unable to locate Steam.dll" Can anyone help?

Google for 'unable to locate Steam.dll' plenty of suggestions as to the cause. This probably isn't BootCamp-OSX related but rather has to do with the Steam executable itself.

Do you have Steam downloaded and installed? You can get it here.

Probably the Orange Box requires Steam installed on your system to run. I could be wrong though. Give it a shot.

Steam should install as the first thing when installing the OrangeBox as this is required. Doesn't hurt to download it separately and install it as well as Vega mentioned.

Maybe he removed Steam, or the file wasn't there.
