My Steam game is missing an executable. How do I fix this?

This error is generally due to one of two things: 1) anti-virus is blocking your game launch or installation; 2) an incorrect delivery of the game files by the Steam service. 
If you have antivirus, please follow these trouble shooting steps to start.
If that doesn't work or you don't have anti-virus, please validate your files, by right clicking on the game title in the Library of the Steam client. Then pick: Properties > Local Files > Verify integrity of game cache. 
Secondly, right click the game in your list and "delete local content". Then, reinstall your game, preferably to a different drive or folder if available. Please ensure you have enough local space to install and run your game.
If that doesn't help, please try:
1. Completely exit Steam.
2. Navigate to your Steam installation folder (~C:\Program Files\Steam) 
3. Delete the 'appcache' folder.
4. Restart your computer and attempt to launch the game through Steam
