Problems Activating On Steam

By aZnCluBBa89 posted 13th Aug 2013

Anyone having trouble activating the game on steam? I at first thought it was just my internet connection but then I switched over to my wifi hotspot and was not able to activate EU4. Anyone else running into this problem?

I was able to activate it without a problem. Does it give an error message or something?

Yes. I get the following message.

"Steam server is currently unavailable

Your computer is currently unable to reach the steam servers or the service is temporarily disabled. Please try again later."

Hmm. I'm going to assume you're using Windows here. Press Win-R to get the "Run" window. Write "services.msc" and press enter. You should get a long list of services there. Scroll down in the list until you find "Steam Client Service" and see if it's started. If it isn't, right-click on it and start it, otherwise right-click and try to restart it.

I solved the problem. For some reason steam was on offline mode and wouldn't activate. Everything is fine now.
