    I bought several new games through BigFish and WildTangent sites. They will not download--forget about installing! I got a new comp 1 month ago. I started to transfer owned games. BigFish downloaded and installed the new games and about 1/2 dozen others, then stopped. WildTangent installed 1 owned game, then quit. I own MANY games and have dealt with both of these game managers successfully in the past. Pray tell, what is the problem, and how do I bloody fix it?

    Are you using the Big Fish games manager or downloading via their website?
    Which specific games are affected?
    Is there any error message?
    Some games require you to accept an agreement to download.

    I have tried downloading my owned games from both the game managers and from the websites. With BigFish games, the previously owned games wouldn't download after about the first half dozen. With WildTangent games, only one previously owned downloaded, and none of the newly purchased ones. BigFish simply stated ''download timed out'', WildTangent stated nothing. I received no error messages or agreement requests from either site

    It there any uac pop up with the problem games?
    Several of mine require UAC approval before they download. Try disabling UAC & see if things continue.

    UAC should not have been an issue--this shutdown happened before I bought my new comp, and these are game sites I have used many times always with the same account name/password. AGAIN, I received no type of notification--pop-up or otherwise, other than "download timed out". I will attempt to "disable UAC", if you tell me how...

    The game may not have the permissions or resources it needs. Try to check for missed prompts in the web browser, change settings in the Big Fish Games Game App, and make sure the download is not blocked by security software.
