It didn't worked too...but as i added crpgLauncher over the button "Add A GAME" (at the end of the games-list), it works.
Earlier i added the crpglauncher over the tab "games" on top of the games-list, it didn't worked.

I don't know about this difference.

Didn't work for me, then ran steam as an administrator and it was all good, told some other guys the same and they've had the same success.

How to run steam as administrator:
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/11841-run-administrator.html

How to add the cRPGlauncher as a non-steam game:

    Launch Steam.
    Click the Games menu, choose Add a Non-Steam Game to My Library.
    Browse for games on your computer or put a check next to the game(s) you wish to add to the Library.
    Click Add Selected Programs


You can also rename the 'cRPGlauncher.exe' in your Steam library once you've added it: Right click, select "Properties" and type a new name in the name field. I called it "Mount & Blade: Warband cRPG".

Does this mean I have to run Steam as Admin all the time or just for the "Create Shortcut"-part?  :?

Sooo if you dont have to run steam to start crpg its basically like a crack now?

i mean if you would download warband  not legally you could still start crpg atm?

I can confirm that starting Steam as Admin and then adding crpg launcher as non-steam game brings back the Steam Overlay w/o the sacrifice of WSE.

Thanks for the tip ;) Appreciate it!

In case that solution doesn't work check this out:
