I'm having issues installing my retail copy of DoW2. I insert the disc, select language and everything. The game will then install third party software and everthing just fine. However when steam prepares the game for install - creating local game cache files etc- the progress bar will reach what one would assume to be 100% however does not move from this screen. i have tried running steam as admin and in compatablity for winxp service pack 3 to no aval.
On my steam games list it will show as installing however it will not make any progress (as i havnt even been able to enter a cd key or specify an install path yet) and trying to exit the install will cause steam to crash.
I would appreciate any advice given. My apologies if a thread like this has been posted in the past, i did try searching but found nothing of relevance to my problem. FYI i am running Windows 7 32bit, with pc specs as follows:
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core processor 5200+ 2.61 Ghz
Ram: 4.00 Gb (3.25 usable)
Video: Nvidia Geforce 8800 GTS
