Hello,

I recently purchased the limited edition of Dungeon Siege III (physical DVD-ROM disc) and just started installing the game. Clicking the setup installs VB Redist and DirectX access. After that, Steam gets started up where I have to enter the CD-key.

However, currently steam is DOWNLOADING the game, whereas I would like to use the files on my physical disc to install the game. Does anyone have any pointers on how to do this? I tried closing down steam and re-run the setup application, but the game will just refuse to install itself through the disc...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hehe, solved it myself. It's a steam issue and you can force steam to install from a given disc. More info can be found here

Thanks. I've been trying for three hours to get the game installed. Steam keeps screwing me up. I will try your suggestion.

I can't find the library. I refuse to install Steam. It takes over your computer. Guess I'll have to return the game to the store.
