Hi all, Steams new update loads me a black login screen, so I reverted to a previous steam version. I inserted a .cfg file into the steam root directory, as well as added a few command lines to prevent the steam updater. People everywhere say this works, but PlayonMac launches a "failed to load steamui.dll" error and closes. Here is my debug report, any help would be very appreciated!

Looks like steam didn't shutdown cleanly, scheduling immediate update check

The “Failed to load steamui. dll” error window appears if your Steam installation is corrupted somehow. The steam. dll failing to load indicates that essential Steam or Windows file(s) is missing, corrupted, or infected with malware, making Steam unable to load SteamUI.
