Orange Box won't install on windows 7 64-bit client


Windows7 64 bit client. Steam installs fine. Then window pops up and says “orange box installer incompatible with 64 bit.”

I’m in the administrator account, running it as administrator, tried running it in compatibility mode, nothing. RIght now i’m trying to install it on xp and then manually transferring the files to the programs file in win7.


I doubt your efforts to transfer the files will work, but let us know if it does.

My first thought is to send in a complaint/request for help from Steam customer service.

Nice. Manually transferring the files from my xp installation worked.

Good for you. :slight_smile:
