Hi,

 

This appears if Windows is unable to validate the digital signature of the EAC driver. We recently switched the order in which our binaries are signed, having the newer Extended Validation to be first. Unfortunately this change seems to break compatibility with some Windows 7 versions, so we've reverted it back to the previous order of having the deprecated SHA-1 certificate first in the chain.

 

Sorry for the inconvenience. We've deployed an update that will be live in 10 minutes from now, then starting the game in Steam should work for you. Let me know if you'd still encounter the error after 10 minutes.
