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.
