Try connecting using the
-tcp
paramter.
If you don't know how to do that, this article should help: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=5623-QOSV-5250

If that doesn't help, have you checked everything listed here? I'm looking more at the stuff at the lower half of this page as you obviously can't change your download region: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=5483-YUFN-0521

FrazerJC Nov 29, 2012 @ 8:46pm 
That's quite possible.

The ports required for Steam are listed here: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=8571-GLVN-8711

Are you signed on for the beta? I reinstalled and everything was peaches until I opted back into the beta. On restart, it gave me the unavailable error.
FrazerJC Nov 29, 2012 @ 8:48pm 
Let's hope! If not, give the stuff I mentioned in the first post a shot.

You can get rid of the beta by using the
-clearbeta
launch parameter on Steam.

Are you using the betaclient? That's what happened to me, I disabled it and was able to get on steam, but now the steam games on my D drive show up as uninstalled :(

Run the Steam.exe in Administrator Mode.

Well, they would do because only the Steam Beta knows how to read them.

Betas have problems, I'm afraid. That's why they are called Betas! I'm sure it'll be fixed soon enough.

I'm glad it's working (we hope...)!
Keep the key for yourself, though, I've already bought it. But thanks anyway!

What he's talking about is an option in Steam Beta that allows you to install games to other drives that Steam is not installed to. For example, my Steam is installed to E, but I could install games to C and D drives using the Beta.

Because he has opted out of the Beta, his Steam only knows how to read the game files from his Steam location rather than both Steam location and the other drives, too.
