When I click the install icon it says We were unable to download necessary installation files due to the following error: HTTP/1.1 404 I have to reinstall the game because, I had to reboot my computer. I mean uninstall all of the programs on my computer by saying that.

That's a weird one comming straight from a steam download button as a 404 error would mean they cannot find the location you want to go to (the download files in this case)

Have you tried reinstalling steam?

Make sure you have a stable connection.

Friend had this happen recently on a new computer check your Java. He updated and was able to install once he updated or installed Java.

Is your firewall or blocking the install? I have to disable my security to install the program. Install it then turn it back on.

This does sound like it might be a missing Java issue. I'd recommend installing both the regular and 64 bit versions from here: https://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

Think this would result in an error other than 404.

So I hit this problem on a clean new install of Windows10.

It turned out, I'd only installed 64-bit java.

The fix was to also install the same version of 32-bit java. I'm not sure why it gives you a 404 error -- that seems very non-intuitive to me.


Maybe the installer should be updated to check for all the required java versions?
