I was trying to download a steam game, which when I click the install button from the app page, launches the steam wizard to install it, however nothing actually happens after the wizard closes. It appears neither in the library or within the downloads.

This happens if I try from within the Steam client or my browser and launching the steam:// link

I have tried running Steam as a admin, I repaired Steam using the Steam installer, I repaired steam using the steamservice.exe /repair function, I tried renaming the ClientRegistry.blob file to have steam rebuild the file.

  3. Reinstall Age of Empires Online from within the Games for Windows - LIVE client.
