  • install Steam without CD key?

    Is Steam free right now? I didn't have to put in a CD key when I installed it, but I have Half-Life installed? Has anyone successfully installed Steam on a system that didn't already have Half-Life installed without having to provide a CD key (or heard of someone doing it)?

    Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.

      I was under the impression that Steam is free, and that it pulls CD key info from your currently installed apps, like HL or CS Retail for example.
      But I may be dead wrong.

        When you load the hl cache, it checks your registery for the cdkey..

        You can install Steam with out a cdkey, but to load any of the games cache files you will need the cdkey.

              What Ender said. On top of that, any retail version of Half Life or mods CD key will work. CS retail, DOD, Blue Shift, all work.
