RE: Unable to download game onto Vista...help!
I'm pseudo-savy as far as PC stuff goes. But assume I know next to nothing,
that way we can make sure all of the steps are gone over. I appreciate your
help. Here's what happened:
I downloaded the Application Compatability Toolkit, but it looks to me like
it is meant for businesses. 'Cause it was asking me for SQL server names for
my database. So, I just stopped right there because I knew this wasn't where
I should be. This is the only thing I downloaded though, should there have
been more? I don't know, I'm lost.
