I`m including the steps for you to make it work. This is an extremely rare issue that will be resolved in time for Steam.
1) Uninstall the game one more time. But - after it`s done uninstalling navigate to the installation folder - and if you see any files left there - delete all of them
2) Now we need to remove temp updater files:
- Go to your user directory (C:\Users\Your User Name Here) with 'Show Hidden Files and Folders' enabled (see here for details), the folder AppData should appear.
- Navigate from your user directory to AppData, and then to Local. For more instruction, see:

- There should be a folder named DoFUpdater there, delete it.
3) Restart your computer
4) Now install the game again, and it should work just fine.
