Installation: "Missing configuration" error

I get the following error when Steam tries to prepare the installation of the German version of Fallout 3 GOTY:

"An error occured while installing Fallout 3 - GOTY Edition (Missing configuration)"

I already deleted the client registry, changed the client language from English to German, changed to the Beta update, and changed the server location. I am able to install other games.

I also reported this error to Steam support, I hope they react in a timely manner.

Hello oktoberklub.

I had your same problem, my region is Spain and Fallout 3 GOTY, just bought, was automatically configured on Spanish, and every time I tried to install it, this error you say showed up.

The only thing I did was to change the language to English. Now it's downloading, I guess later I will be able to change language to castilian again and that will be all.

Hope this helps,
Greetings

In the german version you can't even change the language. There is only german language and i get the same error as you. So i can't install it at all. Valve help!

Thank you, Gracias tio the change of lenguaje works perfectly in my fallout 3 version. German users must open a ticket, it looks like the english version have more files than the spanish or german (the english version is more than 9GB and the spanish version are near of 8GB, so i think that when we download the english version it download full and them change the languages, but in german version that is a CUT version is only available on one language, so is a steam problem not your computers problem.

Well, changing the language didn't work unfortunately. I switched from English to German to English. Seems to be an issue with Steam and the German FO3 version.

Thanks you, ludovicusnecavi, I have my F3 installed.

But now I can't change language. I can change language from Steam' settings, but the game still is in english =S

Gracias de nuevo, ludovicus ^_^
