    Your antivirus program might be the culprit so try turning it off. Once this happened with my Bitdefender which prevented the download completion.

    Yeah was thinking the same as I had the same happen me with Automobilista. Turning off my Antivirus sorted it. Worth a try anyway.

    I've had that happen a couple of times over the years. Try exiting steam then retry. If not then restart your computer, always works for me. First time I spent bloody ages trying to find a way to fix it, ended up being the simplest answer :rolleyes:
