    It shouldn't unless....

    1 - Is this a legit copy of Windows?
    2 - Do you have Games For Windows Live installed?

    And yes the game is supposed to be free, unless no 1 applies to you???

    In the download package, which you can find by default in the following location:

    C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\GFWLive\Downloads\

    you will find a compressed cabinet file like the one shown below:

    Select them all and then right-click and choose Extract... Select a location where you want to extract the files.

    To install the game browse to the location where you saved the files and click on Game.msi. This will install the game. Note that you will get the DX9 error if you try to run it. To correct this, click on DXSETUP.exe to install the relevant DX files.

    Enjoy the game.

    Hi Kathryn,

    That looks like the version that used to be available as an Ultimate Extra for Vista. When you start the game, do you get the following popup?

    I've registered for Live, installed the program... and it tells me my account is invalid. I wonder if this has to do with my registered email address being gmail and not that godawful Hotmail/Live which I never use? I ditched them because it seems half the emails I sent out never got to the recipient.

    Jesus Christ this company is run by idiots. They allowed me to sign up a gamertag using my gmail address but I can't actually LOG IN using this account so I have no way to change the email address associated with it, or use the gamertag.

    Yet I can get my password reset emails sent to gmail.

    Screw this game. It's not worth the hassle.
