Hi. I have several games that I purchased from Amazon and three of them have d/loaded just fine but on the others when I click on the d/load button the page just refreshes. Could this be because the game is not playable on Win 8?
Thanks,
Terri

It may be that their download page for those games has something wrong with it.

Or could it be you purchased pre-orders of the games that aren't downloading?

Whether they play on Windows 8 should have nothing to do with whether they download or not... that would be determined when you tried to install or play them. So far all my games from both Big Fish and Amazon have played perfectly on Windows 8. As Jenny suggests, the problem may be on their end. Have you contacted Amazon?

Hi. Thanks for your help. I did call and they said rather than try to figure out what was wrong we would just reinstall the downloader. It worked, I'm downloading a game as I send this.
