Unhappy Missing Executable

I've emailed Steam support about 72 hours ago, still no response from them so the forum looks like the way to go.

Basically there's a few games that won't install;

- Sleeping Dogs
- Hitman: Absolution
- Thief I & II

What happens is I hit install, and click next - Then all of a sudden the games are in white as if they've been downloaded and are ready to play.

An empty folder for the game gets created in my SteamApps folder, there is _nothing_ in it.

Obviously, if I click Play I get a missing executable error. The folders are empty but there's just no way to download and install them.

I don't do any dodgy activity, I have no other illicit installed versions of the games on my computer. I'm doing this all through the Steam client. Yes I have tried to rebuild the game cache, it says that it's complete and makes no difference.

What do you suggest I do to fix this?

I'm having the same problem with Sonic Adventure 2. It's really annoying.

So people are having problems with games they got in packs. I got the Sonic Franchise pack by the way.

Interestingly, verifying the game cache works successfully. (even when the game isn't "installed").

Yes, that's the problem. The game thinks that everything is installed.
Steam is just ignoring it.
