Marvel’s Avengers Not Downloading / Downloading Error Fix

Users have reported that the download will just freeze at 0 and not progress. We are all in a hurry and we value time. And surely downloading problems is the least we can hope for .  Lets see how we can get this fixed.

Wait a while:

At times there wont be any problem at all and we would just need to wait before Steam allocates the disk space. The game is like a 100gb and it takes a while before the download is actually ready. So just wait , be patient . If in like say 20 minutes (max) you still don’t see the download starting you can follow the steps below.

 

Restart Steam and Computer :

You can start off by restarting Steam .This should fix the issue for most cases. If not then you can try restarting your system once.

Restarting the system would seem weird but trust me it is not. It clears out all kinds of system caches and resets the system state along with the programs.

 

Clear Download Cache:

This would  let the Steam client clear locally cached configuration data and receive it from the Steam servers again :

  • Open Steam Client
  • Go to Steam option located on the top left of your client.
  • Click on Settings.
  • On the Left Panel click on Downloads
  • Then Click on Clear Download Cache

 

Repair Steam Library Folder:

Your steam folder needs user permission for an access. It needs to be writable by all users. Sometimes these user permission actually break off which breaks off the links and it needs to be reset. Here is how you do it .

  • Open Steam Client
  • Go to Steam option located on the top left of your client.
  • Click on Settings.
  • On the Left Panel click on Downloads
  • Click on Steam Library Folders
  • Right click on the folder you have Steam installed and select Repair Library Folder

 

Change Download Region :

Steam has servers divided into specific geographic regions which help the users benefit from faster downloads and faster performance. Sometimes the servers in this regions could be blocked due to a technical issue or maybe overloaded which could make it slower.

In such cases steam gives us the option to change our servers to  any region of our choice. If the download is stuck , we can change the server and see if it resumes or not. Here is how .

  • Open Steam Client
  • Go to Steam option located on the top left of your client.
  • Click on Settings.
  • On the Left Panel click on Downloads
  • Under Download Region you have a drop down arrow which you need to click and scroll. Select a region of your choice (you have to try multiple regions to choose from. Try them out and see which works best)
  • Restart Steam.

 

Reinstall Steam :

If the issue still persists then Resintalling Steam might help . Here is how you do it.

  • Type Control Panel on your windows search bar.
  • Select Programs and Features
  • Look for Steam and Right Click on it and select Uninstall 
  • You can Reinstall Steam from here

Hopefully this will fix any download problems you have with the Marvel’s Avengers. Enjoy the game.
