Just came back to Vicky after an extremely long time just to give it a spin. Is it possible that the "security update" was accidentally performed on a 3.03 version of the game? That's all I'm getting.

You are getting 3.03 after installing the security update ? Likely because you didn't install 3.04 in the first place.
Unless if you refer to what the launcher displays. In that case, reread the last line of the opening post...or in short, ignore that display.

I played with 3.04 many times (same installation). I played it both on beta launch day, and when it was fully integrated. 3.04 should automatically install now. This is especially troubling, since attempting to use the original 3.04 beta on Steam, ALSO results in 3.03...42960_20200715202747_1.png

This is confusing.
What was it with the "security update" you were complaining about ? Oh, you were just wondering that you got 3.03...
This together with "after an extremely long time " made me having to assume you don't use the Steam variant.

Either way, the update installed automatically and fine for me and seemingly everyone else.
Seems Steam can't install anything on your computer.
You got a tech support issue....assuming there is no version still selected in the Betas tab..

I will attempt a reinstall again, but just to be clear, I have 9,274 games on Steam and have never had a problem with updates in years (not since the era when workshop items wouldn't download when subscribed to if you had too many, etc.). Just to be clear, you booted Victoria 2 since May 4th and confirmed with your own eyes that it's 3.04?

Of course i was refering to this case with Vic2 specifically and now.
Regarding the reinstallation, delete the Vic2 folders in Steamapps/common and in Documents/Para.. manually.
Steam alone won't delete everything. Safer that way.

Just to be clear, you booted Victoria 2 since May 4th and confirmed with your own eyes that it's 3.04?
Yup.
Again, i recommend to contact tech support.

Yup.

It eventually fixed itself after multiple re-installs (not uninstalling and reinstalling, but by deleting every folder and verify integrity of cache, so Steam doesn't download the same "broken" stuff). If anyone else ever has this problem, just don't give up on the first attempt...
