Okay so I just bought my Boyfriend a new computer and spore, the Galatic Edition and the Cute and Creepy add on, this evening as suprise.
Sadly my Experiance with Vista is Very low... I have attempted to install three times. Each timethe computer will Go through the normal notions if installation, the start up, the terms of usage ect.
It takes about five minutes to seemingly install.
After it is "done" it pulls the finished screen stating if one wishes to see the readme. After finishing that it asks to install the EA game downloader.
the downloader Works fine however the program itself does not.
I try to find it in the program files VIA the start menu and the only thing found in the electronic Arts Program file is hte downloader. on the Program list for uninstall however spore is there.
I tried a low tech CD rom game I got from my 5 year old brother, I know that if windows 95 is compatable it would surely install on something with Vista, to see if it was just the disk for spore, But during the install it came up as "This Operating System is not adequate for running Hello kitty dream Carnival"
Is it perhaps that my new CPU tower is a POS? Or is it my DVD+ RW ? Or perhaps A user error on my part?
