Demo not working!!!


#1

I downloaded the demo about six times and every time I download it, a Windows error says that the setup files are corrupt, please obtain a new copy. I don’t know what’s going on because about two weeks ago it worked on my computer, but now I can’t even install the demo, which makes me worried about buy the full copy (which I plan to do). By the way, this game is the best game EVER!!! Thanx :smiley:

Check your c:\windows\temp folder and clear that out. Often installations can screw up and leave all sorts of crap behind.


#3

Hi, I recommend deleting the file, rebooting, and redownloading. The demo should be fine. Ill check it now though.


#4

I did what both of you have said and it still says “The setup files are corrupted, please obtain a new copy of the program”. I don’t know what it could be.


#5

I checked the demo and its fine, this sounds like you have spyware or a virus on your PC, I’d make sure you do a proper scan for both.


#6

You’ll want to make sure your virus definitions are up to date, then run a spyware program like spybot and Ad-Aware. Finally, you might want to look at http://www.ccleaner.com/ for a final way to get rid of a lot of crud as well.

I just bought a Dell Latitude D600 laptop computer (Brand Spankin’ New) and the demo is still not working. I don’t know what’s going on.


#8

I downloaded and tested it earlier. You are downloading the .exe file from positechs website, and then double clicking it once youve downloaded it right?


#9

I’m clicking on the words “Just click here” on the kudosgame.com website. It downloads and then I try to run the setup and it tells me that the setup files are corrupted, please obtain a new copy of the program. I don’t know what’s going on.


#10

Could it possibly be my firewall? I’m guessing since it can’t be the computer, that it has to be the internet firewall.


#11

I don’t think the firewall is the problem. The demo is stand-alone as far as I know.


#12

It sounds like your not downloading the whole demo. It should be 17,013k.


#13

That happens to me sometimes - it says it’s downloaded something but it’s cut out half-way through. I always check the file size now.


#14

It’s working! It was just my internet connection wasn’t letting me download the complete demo. Thank you for you time in helping me and I am planning on buying the game this week! Thanks again.
