Unhappy Stuck on "Creating local game cache files..."

The search function always shows a white blank screen when I try to use it so sorry if this has already been brought up.

I am trying to install Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War 2 from the CD. It first installs and updates steam. Then steam asks to install the game which I do. The next window shows it is installing Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War 2, creating local game cache files..., Preparing Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2 files for install... The progress bar takes it time to get to the end but when it does nothing happens. I have waited 4 hours for it and nothing seems to be happining. The contents of my steamApps folder is: common/dawn of war 2 (nothing in it), SourceMods (nothing in it), warhammer 40,000 dawn of war ii english.ncf (size 536 KB) and winui.gcf (size 41,660 KB). From what I remeber there is a file missing from the steamApps folder for Warhammer 40,000 dawn of war 2 that steam is getting stuck on trying to create (Creating local game cashe files) but I do not remeber what it was.

I have dial up internet speed and am using New Zealand Steam servers. I did have Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War 2 installed at one stage but a new patch came out and in the games section of steam it would not stop showing the message "Scanning for steam game updates" so I uninstalled steam and Warhammer 40,0000 Dawn of War 2 and installed them again to be meet by this problem.

Any ideas? I have gone through steam support trying various things like rename the ClientRegistry.blob and open steam ports but have had no luck. Help would be appreciated.

Did not work same result.

I tryed installing Dawn of War 2 from steam (Which will take 2 days and 7 hours at 20kb which I am well below) not the CD and the installation still gets stuck at "Creating local game cache files...". I want to see a progress bar or something! Is it downloading it even though the progress bar is full? If I try to exit it Steam crashes.

If I do not get an ansewer I will have to contact Steam directly but I have found many others with the same issue.
