I'm not glad for the problem, but I'm glad it's not just me. I thought maybe I'd done something wrong.

Add me to the list- same problem, won't install with same error message. It's good to know we aren't alone. Hopefully there will be an update soon! Margie

Me too!

And my C drive has lots of space on it so that can't be the problem here either.

Glad I checked here first before uninstalling & re-installing a bunch.

Gotta love these forums!!

Add me to the list as well. I haven't had trouble with any other games either. I also had the same problem with the CE version of this game. Had to delete and re-dowload three times before it finally worked so I know the problem is with this game. Since I remembered the CE version to be a real dud, I don't think I will even waste anymore time on the SE version.

Update I tried one final time and apparently the 3rd time is the charm. I finally got it to load.

Add me the list as well, I have tried twice now to install and still get the same error message as everyone else. I have never had this problem with BF before either. I hope it gets sorted out soon, ive been waiting for the SE version since the CE version was released.

Also, since trying to install this game "Cradle of Rome" no longer works properly. I dont know if thats related to the problems here or not

FIX for Download problem!!

[Post New]by Sheria on Oct 22, 10 8:43 PM
Thanks to StefanB of LiveChat, I have a solution to the download problem!!


If you change the way that your Game Manager downloads games, this "alternate" method could help with your problem. However, if your download is interrupted, you will have to start downloading again from the beginning:

A. Open your Game Manager
B. Click on "Options" near the bottom
C. Click on the "Advanced" tab
D. Under network connection, select "Alternate Method"
E. Click okay to finish, then close and reopen Game Manager

Note: I had already uninstalled then reinstalled the Game Manager before trying this solution. If this solution doesn't work for you, do that first.

*Edit to paraphrase the solution, rather than quote it.

Thanks, Sheria! That worked a charm and I did not need to reinstall Game manager, just change that one setting. Hooray!

Won't install for me either. turned off my firewall, tried 3x. Still no luck. Looks like a great game. Too bad. It's been a dry spell for good games of late. Will check back in a few days to see if BF can get this fixed.

I installed the trial and got as far as the zodiac puzzle before it ran out of time. I then bought the full version but when I restarted the game the zodiac puzzle isn't working properly; the tiles won't move where I can see empty spaces, just into random spaces. Is there any way I can overcome this without restarting or reinstalling?

Well, what a good nights sleep will do, rofl

I tried again this morning, the game downloaded and most important installed to my F: drive and I didn't have to use the advanced method!

Also downloaded and installed fine to C: drive on my Laptop!

Maybe there has been a fix, would like to know about that!

Take care all, Suki

Thank you, Sheria! I had tried this last night and it did not work, but I did not uninstall/reinstall game manager. I did this morning and worked like a charm! Thank you! Off to play now...

I am convenced that the problem lies with the game. I down loaded, installed and activated the trial game of the collector edition just fine. It's not us.

Mods, please ask tech to fix this.

Everyone, I think they fixed it. After I downloaded the collector's edition I tried again to download the regular one just now and it went though just fine. Yeah! Try it again Fishies.

Like I said above, I think they have fixed it! I had no problems this morning either!

Wish people would read the posts, even though I know it's hard to go thru all of them!

Have fun......
