Steam: How Do I Install Skyrim?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I purchased the game and hit on "play now" and it gives me this pop up that I need to open it with a certain application. What do I choose?

....what are the options?

normally, it will start the download/installation process if you hit "play now" and you haven't dl'd it yet.

When you purchase a game, you cannot play it right away, you have to install it first and then you're available to play it.

Never mind. It was hidden behind the Internet browser LOL. I think that happened to me with Morrowind too:/ I bought the triology for $49.99 in January. What a deal!

Would you know how to find the auto installer 2.01 Overhaul for Morrowind? I can't find it through Google, and of course for the Steam version. There is a auto installer for Steam, but it's 2.0.

Thanks for answering. That wasn't the problem. The problem was a pop-up asked me to choose an application to begin installing, but as I said above, the Steam screen that says install was hidden behind the Internet browser.
