Hi, thanks for the responses everyone.....I'm going to go with the dvd in
the drive instead of putting it on the hard drive. I don't have a huge
amount of space on my hard drive anyway
I just wanted to make sure that
was how it was supposed to be.
It seemed to have some problems at first, I was getting an error code when I
clicked on it in the games program, but I did a disc scan and defragmented
and it seems okay now. I don't really know how it's supposed to look, but
the graphics are pretty amazing! I haven't had any crashes so far. I'm
running it on a laptop with 2 g. RAM and a 7950GTX nvidia card.
I noticed on some websites that they say the program can't run with an Intel
chip, or something, but everything seems to be working okay. When I first
installed I had to "run" as Administrator though.
