For about a year, whenever I activated a Humble Bundle game on Steam, it would give me a blank license agreement to agree to. I thought it was slightly odd.

Today I got this instead: enter image description here

That's the contents of my Games directory.

What's this, and am I the only one seeing a rather odd product activation license agreement?

    Maybe this shows up because steam could not find the path to the license.

    Probably something wrong with your Steam installation, though it doesn't seem like something worth reinstalling Steam for.

    I don't particularly want to read the agreement, in fact I wonder if this could be used as a reasonable defence in court. I only ever agreed to a blank screen and a directory listing... :) Only issue is there's no reason for me to find myself in court in the first place, which is not a bad thing, but makes this curiosity useless...

After doing some (boopity-boop-boop) research, I managed to find this excerpt from a older post but with the same issue:

... it is an error on your installation, as when we update our client... updates >the license file in your ...

It's nothing to worry about. I'd simply agree and continue.
