New computer, no CD drive

Post by Courtenay »

I have just bought a new computer. Somewhat to my astonishment, it does not have a CD drive. How do I get MWiF over to the new computer (barring buying a new copy and downloading)?

Thank you.

You have a download for your owned copy in your personal area.

Thank you, Joseignacio.

To my amazement, I remembered my Matrix games password. However, when I tried downloading, the download stopped, incomplete, at 263 MBytes. I will give it another try later.

If anyone has any ideas about how to make the download work better, I would appreciate hearing them.

Again, thank you.

Never mind. It eventually finished loading; it took close to two hours, which I don't understand.

So you were able to do another download onto a new computer using the serial number from your original CD?

You can do that. I have my game installed in my desktop and laptop. What you cannot do is play both at the same time (except if for some reason you have two solitaire games) because you need to log in with your one user and password.
