Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Steam Issue

Venkman90Venkman90 Registered User regular
So, I went from Windows 7 RC to Home Premium yesterdau (on my macbook).

I copied the Steam folder to an external HDD, copied it back in and ran the installer. Seemed to go ok until I went into My Games...

It isn't showing the games I own but did not have installed in the list at all, it is only showing the ones that were installed and it is saying that all but one of them (Torchlight) are Pre-Load Complete so when I click it them it askes me to purchase them...MW2, Oblivion, Puzzle Quest, not to mention the Orange Box not even showing up (that wasn't installed).


Edit: Re-booting seems to fix it, although MW2 now shows as "Download Paused" Oo

    When I reinstall windows, my steam is on a separate drive so I never have to redownload anything. What you could've done is just run the steam.exe in the steam folder that you copied back over.

    So what you could try, if you have the backup still, uninstall steam, remove your backup. Copy the backup back over and just run steam.exe app in the steam folder and it should do the rest.
