Game not updating/installing on Steam

Recommended Posts

Hi.

Ingame it says there's a new game version which I need to connect to RaceNet.

But Steam doesn't download/install anything. The game is set to be kept up to date and I restarted Steam multiple times. What can I do?

**edit:
I tried uninstalling and installing again. But even that doesn't work, Steam says "download finished 0/0bytes" and the game obviously won't start because the game files are missing. The folder for DR2.0 on the hard drive is empty. I can download and install all other games fine, so probably it's not (only) Steam?! I also tried switching download servers, but that also didn't help.

**edit2:
I tried installing on a different PC, same thing happens.

Update:

I tried on a third PC, on a different internet connection and different OS (Win7 instead of Win10) and the same thing happens. So that's definitely not on my end. When hitting the "install" button in Steam, the following dialog even shows only "46mb" required disk space for the whole game, see attached screenshot.

Is anyone else currently able to install the game?

@Timmsy123 @ChristinaMc Any ideas? Any help would be highly appreciated.

Same here in UK. Game won't run. Get message 'There is a newer version of the game available. To enable this content please download the latest update and try again"

STEAM has no update, nothing happens, can find no way to force an update.

I had a conversation with the Steam support. They just answered and solved my problem. They wrote I had only activated a Deluxe Edition Upgrade, not the base version of the game. Which is true: I preorderd the physical Deluxe Edition + steelbook before release and when it arrived I entered both codes. Only one worked (the Deluxe key), for the other one Steam told me it was already activated. So I thought the Deluxe key included everything. And I played the game for 37 hours fine up until the day of the 1.2 patch. Then it stopped working without telling me why.
 
So now I tried to enter the second code again and this time it was not rejected somehow. And now the game is downloading again. So it was a license issue after all. Problem solved.

I'm getting the exact same error message as paulchr had above ("There is a newer version of the game available. To enable this content please download the latest update and try again."), but in my case the game is installed from Microsoft Store with Xbox Game Pass, and there are no updates available.

@GDIgor That sound like an issue with the actual windows store and not something we can control. Could you attach a screenshot of the issue? it might help us solve the issue if we can. Cheers.
