Destroy All Humans ! Not Launching Steam Error Fixed

Destroy All Humans! is finally here and we are loving it. The game is remade after 15 long years and is now visually stunning . It feels amazing controlling an evil Alien Crypto-137 and destroying the weak human race with different weapons and psychic abilities. As impressive as the game sounds but it has an ongoing issue on the day of release. The game would not launch directly from steam. How do we get this fixed?
