    Introduction
    Hello! This short how-to guide will show you how to quickly and easily install the Dota 2 Workshop tools, now that they're officially released and custom games are now officially supported by the Dota 2 client, as of the Reborn update.

    Step 1.
    First you will need to install Dota 2 in steam. (If you do not have steam, download it here).

    Step 2.
    Once the download for Dota 2 has begun, open up your "Library" tab in steam, find Dota 2 in the list on the left, and right-click on it. Select the 3rd option down that says "View Downloadable Content". This will open a new window that looks like this.

    Step 3.
    Make sure that the checkbox next to "Dota 2 Workshop Tools DLC" is checked. This will begin download process and install the Dota 2 Workshop Tools.

    Step 4.
    Once the download has been completed and the tools have been installed, launching them is easy. Simply right click on "Dota 2" in your library list again, and select "Launch Dota 2 - Tools"

    Conclusion
    Yes, it really is that easy! Now that you've downloaded and installed the tools, you're free to go ahead and begin messing around with the tools. If you're accustomed to the Warcraft 3 World Editor, then the tools will seem complex, however, with just a little bit of practice they will become much more familiar and easier to use.

    It's about an additional 4GB download if you install the workshop tools.

    After the 3rd step, go to Library > Tools > Right Click on "Dota 2 Workshop Tools Alpha" > Install Game. It should start the download, it's 114 MB in size.

    Since the release of Reborn the Alpha tools are no longer used,

    1. Go to Steam/Library/Games/Dota 2 make sure you have the Dota 2 Workshop Tools DLC checked, it should start download after you enable the checkbox

    2. After downloaded its started through the regular Dota 2 click-link in Steam, i.e. brows to Dota 2 and "Play"

    3. A prompt popup window should appear asking you if you want to: Play Dota 2 or Launch Dota 2 Tools

    Hope it helps!

    I just installed it on a fresh computer following the same 3 steps and it works just fine, if you can run Dota 2 Reborn you can most likely run the tools, you don't need to install anything separately just make sure the dlc options for Dota 2 Reborn and the Tools DLC is checked...

    You are not really giving any reasons why it doesn't work so make sure following is true:

    You have a computer with the minimum specs
    You have a internet connection
    You have steam installed
    You are not running steam in offline mode
    You have enough space on disk
    You have Dota 2 Reborn installed

    In addition to what Invalidnick said, can you provide us with any error messages (if any) that it gives you when trying to download the DLC? Unfortunately, the information that you've provided us with is not enough to properly diagnose your issue.
