Odd. Starts downloading fine with I.E., but if I use Getright, it doesn't start. Any ideas?

They have a java powered d/l manager.... I'd recommend using that, instead of using the link on the right... I tried to download it from there, and I was downloading at a whopping 6kb/s... (when the download finally did start..) so I cancelled that, and I used the Akamai link, it downloaded at a steady 700kb/s.

Do I need Sun Java installed for that? Do you have the Akamai link?

Is this Release Candidate 1 a fully functional version of Vista? I know I need that stupid OS for DX10, but I'd rather not spend $200 just for that.

I second that, I really dont want to go buy Vista after just buying my computer...

Check out Joseph's thread (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=75898) in Technical Support for an idea.

If you want to know if your PC fulfills the requirements necessary, here you have a utility to know it http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/getready/upgradeadvisor/default.mspx

It seems to me that Microsoft does not allow discharges with Getright

It looks stunning, I want it, might download whatever they posted in that thread, but I'm afraid it'll screw up my computer
