you're missing one of Launcher files for some reason. Let Steam check installed files:

  1. Open Steam;
  2. from the Library section, right-click on the game and select Properties from the menu;
  3. select the Local files tab and click the "Verify integrity of game cache..." button;
  4. Steam will verify the game's files - this process may take several minutes.

did you managed to fix the issue?
