Hi,

Is there anyway to transfer digital download installations to a new PC without downloading the entire product again? Transferring the game files over to the new computer leads to error messages and suggestions that reinstall is necessary.

Thanks.

Just copy the installers over and reinstall from those, that will set the games up properly.

I recommend you backup those installers and the serial key to a cd or dvd disc.

Using the reinstallers worked for two of my four Matrix games, but one I can't find the installer for and the other won't work in it's new location.  Keeps telling me "the destination file could not be created."  This is for Forge of Freedom and the new computer is a Vista machine.

Use the www.findmyorder.com and I bet you can redownload that installer. See if the "run as administrator" option works for Forge of Freedom, just right click the installer for it. You may have to turn off Vista's UAC too.
