I'm having the same problem, but with Anno 2070... Not a cheap thing to lose after just spending £25 on it!!
ive been doing some reading and it looks like the steam servers are so overloaded that noone can download any games, or atleast thats what everyone seems to be saying

Surely they would still appear in the games library though? I purchased Anno, Steam took payment via Paypal then Steam went to "No Connection". The payment has been taken via paypal, but no sign of the game on my Library and the store page says I don't own it even after paying for it.

Ah, never mind. I guess becaue of the server issues Steam is just taking longer than usual to list purchases, now in my library :)

Mine came up, but took about half an hour or so before it showed up in my Game Library

My GMOD that I bought 5 minutes prior to disconnect will not allow me to install. WTF, I bought it and it started to check for license updates then continued to search although it was making no progress. I noticed shortly afterwards that the Steam server had disconnected. Now that the server is back up, GMOD is in my game library, but I can install it to no avail. Please help me.

Having the same issue with my Arma 2 Czech Add on i just bought. REALLY frustrating. Nice to read some type of explanation though.

OK, re on this. I am now able to open my Library, but that is not where to re-install games, from my experience. You must click on downloads, or downloading, and click Install on the game that you desire. Please reply if you are having issues.
wow. this post was from months ago. i cant believe someone ressurected it.

I know this question was posted looooooooooooooooooooooong ago but if you have the same problem, and nothing suggested here works, It may cause an inconvenience but you could try re-installing steam because it could be a PC problem that cannot be cured unless you re-install steam.

had the same problem with it getting frozen in "licence updates". The game I bought, system shock 2, did not appear in my library for download. I re-downloaded the steam app and now system shock 2 is there, but all other games are gone. Very frustrating.
