Alright, I've had it!
I just recently got a new computer - I got Windows 7 64-bit with it...
I've been trying to install Steam with no success...
To begin with - I got this
and it didn't move.
I uninstalled it, tried again - got to 6% before not moving. Tried and retried this. Most I got to was 8%
I started going online and looking for solutions. I have tried -
Uninstall with registry clear (manual) then reinstall.
Using CCleaner before reinstall.
Removing specific suggested files from the Steam directory and reinstalling.
Restarting in Safe Mode with network support.
Restarting after each of these prior to reinstalling.
Virtually every combination of these.
Most probably something else here that I'm forgetting.
After I restarted the last time, it went through and seemed to complete. Where it had 'Updating Steam.....' in the above graphic, it had changed to 'Updating Steam Platform...' and went to 28%...
and then stopped.
I went through everything again... and now it's back at the first graphic and just at 4% complete.
I'm getting hints it is something specific to 64-bit Windows but I can't find a solution online or come up with one on my own.
Anyone have any ideas for a frustrated Kip?
