Can't download

Postby tone » Fri Aug 19, 2005 12:11 am

I purchased a license key, and enter it on the download page (for the Battleship game, not the beta), and it gives me the generic "can't do it page" and suggests I turn off firewall(s).

I disabled both Windows XP firewall and my wifi router's firewall, and no change in what goes wrong. Why such a fussy download process? What do I try now?

doh.. got it now.

The issue is that stupid windows apps copied an extra space at the end of the license key when I double clicked it and hit control+c from the webmail browser. You could guard against that by trimming whitespace at the ends of the keys typed into the download page.

I'm off and playing though.

Good point, tone. Although, I thought I did do that. Maybe it's a carriage return or something.
