Starting portal prelude starts portal

Hey, I just installed the mod, but when I start it, I am just left with the normal version of Portal. I own the orange box, so this is not the free version messing up. Anyone have any ideas?

Re: Starting portal prelude starts portal

1) I go and open steam, open Library->Games, and select Portal: Prelude. Click play and play some original portal.
2) C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps
3) C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\SourceMods\portal prelude

The installer put it there. Portal is not really in a folder, its a few files in the steamapps folder, and random stuff all over the steam folder.

Re: Starting portal prelude starts portal

I have the exact same problem. I have Prelude in the correct folder, it appears in my Steam Games List, and everything should work great. However, when i click "Play", rather than starting Prelude, the original Portal begins. If a forum moderator or anyone else who has solved this problem could address how to fix it, it would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Starting portal prelude starts portal

I had this problem, which might just be a problem with all/most mods because of recent updates. An error actually shows up in Steam but regular Portal launches anyway.

Another mod suggested this, and it worked for Prelude: find gameinfo.txt and change the "SteamAppId  218" to "SteamAppId  400".
