I am trying to download a game from vive media and it seems to download good until it gets to the 'Run" window. I click it and get a message saying "enterlauncherbuttonwebsite i ini. Then i can't go any further. My computer is fairly new with updated rivers. Any ideas?

Until someone comes along to help. When I had a problem downloading from them.. their customer service was very helpful and got me running the game.. have you tried emailing them.

Kim,

I don't know how Viva Media works but when I download anything I don't hit Run (unless it's something like CCleaner's updates since I really trust them), I always hit Save. Do you have that option?

As Traveler suggested, save the game to your hard drive before trying to Run it.

It doesn't give me a save option, only run

Does it give you Any option other than Run? Run would mean you are playing the game through the Viva Media site and I'm sure you can't. You have to have it on your hard drive.

I just downloaded a Viva Media game and when I clicked on Run, it installed the game to my hard drive.

Draclvr,
At what point do you see "Run?" Is it after you downloaded the whole game or before the download?
Did you see anything like "enterlauncherbutton?"
Did you have to use a Viva Media game manager of any sort?

exalthim2,
Does the game have more than one file to download?

I can't remember for sure - this was for the Dark Arcana game I just won from GB. But I "think" it was before.

I will redownload and pay more attention.

I had a problem also with Gray Matter.....I could not get it to unzip...It would say file corrupted...

Then I opened up DM.... http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/

Started to download clicked on save...It downloaded..Then DM pop up in the right hand bottom corner to show me the unzipped folder to click unzip.....I unzipped it ,and clicked open folder.....The folder opened up to the Icon... Setup....You have to double click on that to INSTALL the game first..The folder that is unzipped is called "GM" Look for that folder..Which has the SETUP Icon.....

It will install the game plus you have to install DirectX...

luck

exalthim2...You can't run the game until its installed on your computer.

OK, taking a lunch break. I used the download link in the email I was sent and got the "save file" window. So, the "run" I saw must have been after it was downloaded to my computer.

Thanks Darleen,
That sounds like a complicated procedure.
They make it hard to tell what you're doing.

Jenny....Its a zipped folder that needs to be downloaded first....

When you go to Viva Media to DL a window comes up OPEN or SAVE....

You want to save it...If your using Firefox browser that comes with a DL manager built in to the browser its in the upper right hand corner that shows the progress....

FF you can unzip also... Once you unzip the folder ..A new folder opens up which is "GM" in that folder is the Icon for SETUP to install the game....

Then just do what it says from there....

Wow, how complicated. I didn't have any of that. I just got the "save" window when I clicked on the "download" link in the email; it downloaded and then I got the option to run the downloaded file.
