I have a legitimate copy of HL2 which I used to play CS:S with before, after formatting and reinstalling(having taken a long break from CS:S) I can no longer download CS:S via steam because it asks me to purchase it. What is going on here? I thought when you own a copy of HL2 you can download CS:S for free?

Nasty bug. Here's a solution from the Steampowered support:**&p_li=&p_topview=1

So, they are saying that the only chance of Steam doing that is that you didn't use a valid credit card but that's not the case with you?

You should close Steam, delete ClientRegistry.blob from the main Steam folder and restart Steam. That may help.
