    They recently upgraded the customer experience on their site in the form of a
    new application designed to make activating your product and managing your
    games a lot better. What I would do is on each installer, right click on the
    application you downloaded and select Run As Administrator. See if this
    helps. If not, try doing that , but more importantly right clicking on the
    application downloaded, select properties, compatability, and check the box
    run in this mode for, and select Windows XP SP2, and check the run as
    administrator box. This may help things a bunch.

    A lot of the games produced by Big Fish and other companies like
    Reflexive do not work properly with Vista. At least not Vista 64 which
    is what I'm running. They sent me a message saying that the authors
    will have to update their code.
