How to download a Steam game without DLCs?

I bought The Binding of Isaac together with the soundtrack, and now when I want to download it to another PC, instead of the binary Steam also downloads the soundtrack, increasing the download size. Is there any way to avoid this?

  • Is using Steam Achievement Manager (SAM) against Steam rules?
  • Why doesn't Bioshock 2 start from within steam?
  • Is it (currently) possible to share games between users on different computers?
  • What are the cryptic Steam Super Meat Boy achievements and what do the names mean?
  • Where is my Steam inventory?
  • Install Steam on an external drive?
  • Can I bulk download Steam games?
  • Is there a way to manually update a game?
  • How do trading card booster packs drop?
  • Is using Steam Achievement Manager (SAM) against Steam rules?
  • What does “Verify Integrity of Game Cache” do?

    I know this is a rather old question, but for anyone still having this issue:

    There is the option to choose which DLC content should be downloaded and installed in the steam beta client.
    Sign up for the beta, switch you client to beta mode and then under the properties of your game, you can install / uninstall each piece of DLC individually.

    Someone with a similar problem contacted Steam support and got the following reply:

    “Unfortunately we do not have the ability to remove DLCs from games. Once a DLC is purchased, it is automatically added to the game install files. We understand the inconvenience this may cause.”

    They gave him the option to remove the DLC from his account, but that was about the best they could do.

    Unfortunately, because of the way DLC support in Steam is designed, there is (to my knowledge) no way to download a game without the DLC you bought.

    This is only possible if Steam actually sees the DLC as a separate game, but in the case of soundtracks et cetera I’m afraid there’s no option.
