I've recently bought a disk copy of Civilization V, and whenever I try to install the game, it pops a message "No AppId configured", what can I do?


  • This WAS a legal purchase, not a burned disk or copied program
  • I have installed Steam and created an account
  • I came here out of desperation, as Steam's support didn't have an answer

In the upper left corner in steam under "Steam" there should be an option called "Backup and Restore games"

Click this and choose "Restore a previous backup"

Change the directory by pressing "Browse" to your CD-ROM (usually located on D:)
