Can't install HL2 "Not enough disk space" message is false

  1. I have a Vista operating system and have have tried to insall my "Half-Life 2 Episod One" software programs.

    I have installed the Half-Life 1 Anthology and Half-Life 2 programs without any problems.

    However, when I try to install HL2 Episode One I get the following error message:

    "There is not enough free drive space to run steam".

    I uninstalled steam and the two other Half Life programs and reinstalled Steam.

    When I tried to just install the HL2 Episode One by itself I got the same "not enough drive space" message.

    I have 184 GB of free space on Drive C where I install my software and 254 GB of free space on Drive D.

    Hope someone can help me with this problem soon.

    I tried to get help at the Steam support center but haven't received in reply to my help request in 3 days! Still waiting.


    Thank you!

    did a google and got this

    Had the same problem with Vista 64-bit....

    Copy the entire contents of the install DVD to a folder of your liking (I simply created a "temp" folder on my desktop). Then run setup.exe from your newly created folder.

    Can't believe this simple solution isn't on Steam's help forums!
