Old half life 2 expired?
Hi,
I have an old half life 2 that i have never played, so i install it and everything seems to be fine.
But after it has installed i am asked to activate the product with a code. So i type in the code and it loads for a while but in the end it just says:

Steam server is unavailable
Your computer is either currently unable to reach the steam server,
or the service may be temporarily disabled. Please try again later.

So i can log into steam straight after this message pops up so i guess i can indeed reach the steam servers.and when i click on the half life shortcut on my desktop it brings me to the half life 2 shop page as if i hadnt bought it. So does this mean that the service is temporarily disabled (or permanently) so i will just have to buy another half life 2!! Please help!

Regards,
Paract

Try typing in the activation key inside of steam. Go to Games -> Activate a product on steam. Hope that works for you.
