Windows 7: Dungeon Siege III (Steam)

Dungeon Siege III (Steam)

So, I purchased Dungeon Siege and Dungeon Siege II through the Steam client as a pre-purchase for Dungeon Siege III. When DS III was released, I downloaded it. However, when I try to install it, it hangs on the following message:

Quote:
Performing first time setup...

Installing: DirectX Redist Package (2 of 2)
All the other Steam games I have (Dungeon Siege I & II and Mass Effect) installed and work flawlessly. All anti-virus software was disabled during install to no affect.

Any ideas?

Ive had a install hang like this once before.
Same thing, but for me it was the step when Fable 3 was trying to install GFWL and it just froze there.



At any count, I just cancelled the install, exited & restarted Steam. Then it installed just fine.

May be worth trying, or even restart your PC then try again.

Hmmm .. not sure. Never had one hang up with the DirectX part.
Perhaps give it a bit longer? How long have you let it sit at that step?

This may be the same issue I am having with Microsoft Download servers just not responding to any downloads, including DX, WLE, IE10, C++ etc.

Go to a Microsoft Downloads Center and try to download something yourself. If the servers don't respond and you don't get your download, I'm afraid there's nothing much you can do but wait and try again (and again again, yes )

OK. I tried re-installing by booting Windows into Safe mode. The game appeared to complete the install. However, now back in regular mode, The game is failing to launch and I am getting the following:

Dungeon Siege III failed to start (error code 51)
If I can't get this to run, how do I get my money back from Steam so I can go buy a hard copy of this?

Dungeon Siege 2: Broken World - graphic issues
The game automatically chooses integrated graphics. Main Menu works fine, but during the gameplay every time I move the mouse, the cursor starts to blink. Well, I'd withstand that, but another problem is that the integrated graphics simply can't hold out, and the game often drops even below 10 fps....

Dungeon Keeper 2 on x64
I've read about a few people getting this to work properly on Windows 7 64-bit but with their settings my game crashes right after the opening video (as it does without compatibility as well). I also tried creating a shortcut with the -32biteverything param. Any input? Thanks!

Dungeon Siege on Windows 7
I've looked into the threads on the Compatibility page, but it didn't really go into detail on how to make Dungeon Siege work on Windows 7. My problem is that the game will start up and run, but the graphics are a bit screwy when wanting to play/make characters. It does this weird "flash and lag"...
