Microsoft Windows & Steam Client basics for XCOM®

  •  %USERNAME% is set by Microsoft Windows at Login.
  •  %Steam% value may be found within Steam: "Steam" menu > "Settings" > "Downloads" panel > "STEAM LIBRARY FOLDERS" button > "FOLDER" column
    • Personally, I (being the contributor who made the template that is the source of this line) have a "Simple Volume" (on an external-USB-Drive) mounted in the "folder" listed here.
      • It is highly recommended that "C:\Program Files\" not be in the path to this "folder"!
      • It is highly recommended that "C:\Program Files (x86)\" not be in the path to this "folder"!

These two supporting "Redist" programs only need to be installed ONCE - for either "XCOM 2 SDK" or "XCOM 2 War of the Chosen SDK":
UE3 Redistributable:		"%Steam%\SteamApps\common\XCOM 2 SDK\Binaries\Redist\UE3Redist.exe"
Visual Studio isoshell:		"%Steam%\SteamApps\common\XCOM 2 SDK\Binaries\Redist\vs_isoshell.exe"

	* (right-click) > "Properties" > "Compatibility" > check "Run this program as an administrator" then "Apply" & "OK".
	* Required? (for ModBuddy to launch XCOM in Debug Mode!)
	* Optional? (may manualy launch XCOM in Debug Mode - using StartDebugging.bat - see above ...)

ModBuddy Documentation:		"%Steam%\SteamApps\common\XCOM 2 SDK\Documenation\XCOM2 SDK QuickStart.PDF"
