Many scripts I tested end with this :

I used to install Steam from the PlayOnLinux packages, but haven't done it for a long time.

I have always downloaded the SteamSetup.exe from Steampowered.com and installed it.

What is up with the double slashes //?

C:\\Windows\\system32\\steam.exe

Thats fine...

Its clearly the path to Steam but normally Linux uses forward slashes and Windows uses backslashes.  But in your error it uses double backslashes... kinda strange.
