Game doesn't seem to install from game disc?

Nicholas Steel


The retail game disc does not seem to be used during qame installation.


I insert the game disc

begin installation

the installer loads Steam and Steam activates the game on my Steam Account

Steam then downloads the entire game from the internet without touching the disc


Very ****ing annoying considering I buy physical game discs to avoid huge downloads because my internet isn't the greatest. This is almost just as bad as the Lords of the Fallen game, this should be fixable by the developers (unlike the LotF issue).


v2.02 (Game cache integrity verified)
Windows 10 x64
Intel i7 920 @ 2.66GHZ
ASUS P6T Motherboard
Gainward Geforce 560Ti 2GB with latest drivers
Integrated Audio

ASUS DRW-1814BLT (1.14 firmware)


For those that are curious, Lords of the Fallen uses a DVD disc format that Windows 8.x and possibly other Windows versions don't support. For that game I had to copy the files off the disc to the HDD on my dads Windows 7 computer, transfer them via the network connection and then run the installer from my computers HDD.

Maybe this tip from Steam Support  will help you out in the future:


Game Won’t Install From Disc ? Requires Download From Steam
Some of the users have reported that the disc version of the game they bought requires download from steam. If you face this problem you can try deleting all the game files and re-install the game using setup.exe from the disk. Or you can refer to the tutorial below on how you can install the game from the disc instead of steam.
How to Use Steam launch options to install retail games from disc.
1. Log in to Steam and click on Library.
2. Right-click on the game, select Delete local content, and confirm.
3. Insert the first disc into your computer.
4. Close Steam (Steam > Exit).
5. Press Windows Key + R to open Run
6. In the Run window type:
“C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe” -install E:
Replace E: with the CD/DVD drive you are installing from if is not correct.
Replace C:\Program Files\Steam if your Steam installation is not in the default location.
7. Press OK. Steam will launch and ask you to sign in if you do not have your password saved. Your installation should continue from the disc."
IMPORTANT: Install Steam from web first. Some users report, that this bug occurs, when using the version on disc.
