I have had this same problem and checked out the steam forum with this result.... Go into Valve/Steam and locate clientregistry.blob... and delete this file. then reconnect to steam.

i have that exactl same problem. and i have deleted that clientinfo.blob thing but it still doesnt work. and it has worked before on my computer so i know i can play it. can ANYBODY find a solution to this!?

I had exactly the same issue, and deleteing clientregestery.blob didn't work for me either. So I made a new user account on my computer and it works fine there =D
Thats all i could do, nothing else would work.
