Fix steam showing installing/updating in CCBoot Client

Problem:

Steam shows updates to clients, even when it's fully updated on the server.

Cause:

Steam requires its service to be running when the client boots, if the steam was installed in the Game disk in server then the steam service is not in auto start in client. So it will show you installing/updating the client

Solution 1:

Run steam client as administrator

1. Navigate your Steam installation directory

2. Right-click the Steam executable and click on Properties (Figure 1).

Figure 1

3. Click the Compatibility tab, then check the "Run this program as an administrator" checkbox and click "OK" (Figure 2).

4. Now, run the steam again and it will not show the installing/updating.

Note: if the above method didn't work then please delete the "appcache"  folder in the steam directory and let it get to sign in the window. If you are doing this in client, then after that close the steam and then disable the super client and save.

Solution 2:

1. Boot the client in super client mode and update the steam client.

2. Once updated, open the steam folder and look for the "Package" folder.

3, Copy this folder to the server "Steam" folder and overwrite it.

4. Now, clients won't show updates for steam again.

Note: If your client OS is Windows 7 and server is different OS

then you should not open steam on the server as every time you open steam on your server, it will change some files  and the client will again download files for Windows 7.
