I just purchased gears of war pc off of windows live and it is in my downloads. When i try to download it it says I do not have enough space. I have 19.4 GB free. I think the problem is I have windows 7 and I need to have xp or vista for it to work. What can I do being I already paid for it?

I just checked canyourunit, and it states that you need 12gb free and that Windows 7 isn't compatible, but it should let you download it:\\

Well it should work fine, I have it installed right now and I'm on Windows 7 64Bit. JUST MAKE SURE you install this patch before you load the game or you will have to uninstall and reinstall. I learned the hard way. Its to update the digital signature for the game.

Well this clearly doesn't make any sense. When I try to install it it says I do not have enough room. It says I have 8.5 gigs left but as you can see I have 19. I only need 13. I am having so much trouble with this game.

Put it on the HDD, having it on the SSD really wont help at all. I put some games on the SSD and they werent affected much, in a positive way.

Ok, I got it working. I searched for public and ranked matches. I can not find one person. I was told some people still played this game.
