Fail installing steam service Help!!
« on: November 28, 2009, 11:37:58 AM »
Hi, i'm trying to install a service in win xp and i get a message that my firewall its "blocking the process"
I try to install the service reinstalling (and repairing in ad/remove programs) the program and even with "cmd window" command but nothing always get this :

Failed to poke open firewall Steam Client Service install completed

Its seems that the firewall its blocking the install process??? and the service its not installed ???

I would delete all the current rules for Steam in both the firewall and D+. Then, put the Firewall and D+ in training mode and try again to install Steam. Don't forget to put the settings back to your preferred ones after the installation and setup is completed.

when you managed to install steam and let the games start, you made the most difficult test of your usage of a defense system.
steam and its games need memory access between each other.
and for online gaming the games need :OUTgoing udp and OUTgoing tcp.

i use steam and cis. it took some reboots for me, after freezing, until i found out what steam and its games need.

trainings modus for defense (until you reached the menu of a game, then at once BACK TO SAFE/paranoid mode!!!).
internet rules: OUTGOING TCP and OUTGOING UDP.
will work!
You have to go past the menu for a game like Team Fortress. You have to actually connect to a server and start playing the game. Then exit the game and Steam and put D+ back to Clean PC (I find safe too aggressive) and the Firewall to safe.

I just delete all the pending files. They never come back unless updated versions come along. If I wasn't alerted by them,they should be fine. Safe mode has caused me problems before and I won't go near paranoid.
