I cannot start Civilization IV through desura. I have Civ IV through Steam.

Error:
Failed to launch item.

Failed to launch item Civilization IV, File is not valid
exe [c:\steam\steamapps\common\sid meier's
civilization iv beyond the
sword\Civ4BeyondSword.exe]. [61.0]

Any idea what's wrong? (It has the correct file path.)

It's the steam version of the .exe so only steam can launch it.

You might be able to download a Retail .exe (Since you bought the game it doesn't matter where you download it) , but beware of viruses.

Actually, the above is the wrong path, but I entered the correct path manually. I guess it's not accepting the manual path? The correct path is:C:\Steam\SteamApps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization IV Beyond the Sword\Beyond the Sword\Civ4BeyondSword.exe

You know what is funny about The warlords theme song :P
It is a Lebanese folks song (a love song to be precise) the song talks about a beautiful women that the singer would let mountains bow before her then he says that when she appears she blooms as April ( April is month of the Virgin Mary in Lebanon Because All flowers trees Bushes Bloom in April) so if you take it that way you would see the paradox in the Game Title and the song :D
