Halo 2 Won't Download LIVE Profile!?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi my m8 purchased Halo 2 for the online multiplayer. But after installing and activating with the CD key he gets to the bit where you download your games for Windows LIVE profile BUT download never happens and the rig just sits there doing nothing!?

I built the rig for him for Christmas doubt it would be software/botched install here are the specs:

Athlon x4 635
ASUS M4... Something 880 chipset blue heatsinks (almost like my sig MoBo but a mATX with 1 PCIe x16).
GTX 460 (with 260.xx drivers ones that support the card though).
Onboard LAN/AUDIO (RealTek)
4GB 1333 Corsairs XMS.

Rig has a clean install of Windows 7 x64 all chipset/drivers etc are up to date but whatever he tried (including multiple installs using custom full install etc). But the game just won't download the LIVE profile and as this is required for online play its a bit of a non starter as this is what he bought the game for really!

I installed the game on my rig and it displays the same issue as on his PC so it ain't some weird one off issue so anyone have any ideas (kind of expected more from a Microsoft game imho... maybe i should of just "guessed" something like this would happen lol)!

Thanx.

Hmm... I seem to remember a problem I had with that game.. I had to try joining multiplayer or do something that made it "update" for it to work. I don't remember what I had to do however.
