After installing Steam, it demanded an update of 127 MB. But I don't have an Internet connection. So can I download a pre-updated Steam from any other computer which has an Internet connection?

  • You should be able to. Just copy the files over... But as for what files: I don't know. – aytimothy Apr 18 '15 at 7:58

    You need to start a game once while connected to the steam servers bevore you can play it in offline mode. So even if you manage to install Steam on a computer not connected to the internet at all wouldn't help you. – raznagul Apr 18 '15 at 8:52

It seems like you can do it by copying the whole Steam repository from another computer where steam is fully installed as @aytimothy said and as it is explained here : http://steamcommunity.com/discussions/forum/1/828934913076877521/

If you copy it from a friend or so, copy everything except the SteamApps repository because it contains the games.

But steam is constantly updated and is really thought to be used with an internet connection.
