Connection Timeout

I keep trying to install the game, but I keep getting the message "Connection timeout" after the message "preparing files for installation"

Would it be an issue with my internet connection? I am running one thing that might be the problem, but I'm not so sure it's that.

---New info below.---
It's not that, closed it, problem still persists.

I am also suffering from this problem.
I have already reported it to Steam Support, let's hope it will be fixed soon.

Same here...

The dot-dot-dot at the end of "Preparing IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 files for install..." keeps flashing really fast, and then eventually it pops up the connection timeout error message.

So it looks like the installation files are not available on the server, or something like that? I am online, I am downloading other Steam games at the same time.

Could it have something to do with...

"System Requirements
OS: Windows® XP/2000 (only)"

?

Still no luck here - what region have you set in your Steam settings?

Same problem here - download not started "connection timeout" message only. Is there any way to return this game to the shop? I do not feel happy, seeing such situation...

Not at all, no reply. I have sent one ticket in English last 27th, and yesterday I sent another in my native language (Portuguese).

I just started Steam now and attempted to download IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 again and there are a few things different:
  • Before, the download size was 4,070.8 MB. Now it's showing 5,368.2 MB which was actually the size when the download was stuck and I right clicked the download folder and selected Properties.
  • The game was being downloaded to the "staging" folder under the "steamapps" folder. Now it's being downloaded to the "common" folder where all the games are normally installed at.

So, hopefully it's fixed? I don't know yet.
It will take ~1 hour to finish downloading, then I'll know.

EDIT: reporting back, game is working now

I had the same issue for a few days. Then I just tried it on my other computer and the installation started well, but the downloading is very unstable. In one night it just downloaded 50MB.

That was yesterday, now the download speed improoved but still jumpy from 0kb/s to 150kb/s.

Hope it works for you guys.
