Installed Old Skyrim now have Legendary Edition
Hello, I originally installed Skyrim from Disk (Pre-DLC) then recently bought a brand new copy of Legendary Edition (Disk again). I've "uninstalled" the original one, and installed from my new disk, but it doesn't seem to install the DLC's. I can't seem to find a way to unassign the game from my Steam account in order to activate my new key. Any help?

Also, I forgot to say, when I go to check for DLC's from the library, it says none are avalible. In any case, I wouldn't be able to download them cause I'm on Dialup... (not by choice)

Right, but now I have two official keys, but the one used was done so with the game pre-DLC. I just want to remove everything to allow me to install fresh and with DLC's. At this point I don't even care if my 1st key gets scrapped.

Well, i guess it'll overwrite your old key, if this doesn't work, contact the steamsupport, they should help you at all.

You didn't have to uninstall the game at all, because Steam is updating the game, so it's on the same level when it's digital.

Just activate the new legendary key, it should activate all the DLC's. If it doesn't, do as zOEY said and contact Steam support.

Thanks for the help guys, I'm trying to contact support now, but just in case it takes them 6 years to get back to me, hwo would I go about activating the new key? It never asks me to enter the key cause when I install it still has the old one registered.

At the top of this browser u can click on "Games" -> "Activate a Product on Steam...". If this doesn't work, contact them.

In the Steam client, at the top menu, click Games, "Activate a Product on Steam...", punch in your key, and it'll add it to your library.

Sweet! That seems to have worked. It's now registered as Legendary Edition in the library. Thank you guys!

How did you do that? I have the same problem.

I followed support's advice and ran

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steam.exe" -install D:

to make it install from the DVD after registering it, and it said it would take 20 minutes to update.

But after the 20 minutes it starting downloading the DLC!

It's got as far as 7.5 GB out of 11.2 GB in 2.5 hours, and I had over 6 GB to start with! The DVD is nearly 7 GB, which is hugely more than my original DVD. The box says "including DG, HF and DB", so I thought they would be compressed on the disk. So it should install from the disk and then go on-line to check for updates. But the damned disk should be fully patched to 1.9.32.08 anyway.

But it won't install at all unless I am on-line. When I entered the key number, it should have registered that I had a valid disk and then asked me what I wanted to install.

God, I HATE Steam and all on-line validation protocols. I despise it with a passion and loathing I cannot describe. I have a bloody disk and a valid registration key! It should take 20 minutes to install from the disk, not hours and hours from Steam at 100 KB per second, 405.3 KB/s peak rate. And at a cost of £20.

And I only wanted to install Dawnguard anyway!

One does not simply installing one Add-On. Lol.

It's your connection then, because i dl with 11.4 MB/s here.

Why not? If I want to install only Dawnguard on top of my vanilla Skyrim, that is my choice and my right. I can install Office without installing Outlook or whatever else I want to exclude.

But why are the damned DLCs not on the disk when the box says they are included?

What is that 7 GB on the disk if it's not compressed esm and bsa files?

And why is the damned thing trying to download anything at all when I have a DVD and it accepted the registration key?

And not everyone lives in an area that has superfast broadband, so don't be so smug.

But even so, Steam is notoriously slow. I have a Broadband dongle that downloads other things far, far faster than Steam can deliver.
