Do you already have Steam installed?

Also, have you checked the install instructions for the game?

Do you get any event log errors under system or application?


* I thought I remembered a thread from way back that said something about running games in either admin or compatability mode(s)... can't find it now of course. *

Steam does not need to be run in compatibility mode, nor does Steam recommend it be run in compatibility mode.....

Note:

Please do not run Steam in compatibility mode.

Since this is a Steam based game logic would suggest that the game not be installed in comaptibility mode either.

Are you having any issues with Steam itself?

You might have to check out the game's forums to see what they have to say about the install problems

Game or games? Are you saying any game you attempt to install through Steam won't install?

Is you account in good standing?

You may want to check out the support section - Steam Support
