I have attached startup log.

I can get the game to start if I delete "7H_GameDriver.dll" located in root folder of FF7 Steam version.
However, if I do this, it seems like all config gets messed up, media doesn't play, and there are graphical anomalies.
Moreover, if I quit, and try to start the game again, "7H_GameDriver.dll" file again prevents game from starting, and I have to delete it resulting in same problem I am having.

Hope someone can help. Thanks.
