No Idea what I'm doing wrong with installation

Recommended Posts

I have downloaded everything correctly (at least I think I have) and after it's done downloading I click on open and nothing pops up, and nothings comes up to put in the activation code. Pls help.

The file that you download is named what ? Typically these will be .zip compression files (which most Windows versions should be capable of opening). If you have a compression program such as WinZip, 7-zip, WinRar, etc., then try opening the file with that program and see if the file is recognized (and decompresses to show the contents). You will need to extract the .zip file to a directory and then run the setup program that gets extracted in order to install the game. Once the game is install and when you try to run it for the first time is the time that you should get dialog boxes to activate the game.

If you have security software (anti-virus, etc.), then you may need to temporarily disable it or possibly add an exception since some of the Battlefront games/modules are identified as being infected (this is a 'false positive', none of the files should be infected with anything). Usually most security software will tell you when it has run into something (quarantining or potentially deleting the file).

Also where did you save that file to? 

It's a compressed archive that contains the game installer as explained above, so it's best placed somewhere like your documents folder, rather than your root directory, or program files folder.

Once the installer is up and running you can tell it where to install the game itself.
