If you are having problems installing on steam read this.

This is not a games review but an aid to anyone having problems installing the game on steam.
The glitch seems to happen when you own the original game and then try to install the Legendary version. Every time I tried to load the disk it would only load the standard game not the downloadable content. You will know that there is a problem because it wont ask for your activation code.
I spoke to Bethesda the game manufacturer and they have received a lot of calls about it. Listed below is how we sorted the problem.
1) If you find the extra content has not been installed uninstall the Skyrim game.
2) Open up the main Steam page by clicking the steam icon.
3) At the top left of the page to the left of "Help" is "Games" left click this and go down to "Activate a product on steam" start this process and input the activation code that came with the game.
4) Once the code has been accepted exit the setup this means that your new code has been accepted but the game has not been installed yet. If you don't cancel this setup it will try to download the whole game.
5) At the top left of the steam page is the word "Steam" left click this and go down to "exit" and left click it. It is important to shut the steam down.
6) Restart steam.
7) Open up the game disk. To do this in windows 7 left click the blue circular window icon and then lower left corner of you desktop click the "computer" icon. This should then bring up the drives on your machine.
8) Single left click not double click the drive that has your game is in and in the panel that pops up left click open.
9) Look through the files listed for the steam icon and double click it, this will load everything on your games disk including the extra content.
I hope that steam will sort the problem and none of this will be necessary.
I am sorry if this does not work for you. This advice is only give with best intensions to save you the phone calls & emails I had to make.
By the way the game is well worth the effort because it is amazing.
