    Thumbs down "Steam must be running to play this game" error when started from steam

    I bought PvZ GOTY Edition yesterday in steam but when I try to run the game I got this weird message. After that, the game starts fine but it doesn't save in steamcloud (I have to cancel when the steamcloud window appears) and don't send achievements to steam. Also, the steam overlay (shift+tab) works fine
    I searched and found that this started happening after an update of the game in 2010. I really want to share my achievements with my friends and save the game in steamcloud. Maybe a new update could fix that.
    This (sticky) thread at steam forum explains this and more problems (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1396031).
    Thank you.
