Right click the unified installer and run as admin. Step 4. Allow it acces to the internet to install the files it needs. Step 5. Windows will want to install a updated file and you will have to reboot your comp before you can run the launcher. Step 6. Reboot your comp after installing the unified installer and windows updates it files. Step 7 Update the launcher and the game. Run the launcher and let it update and restart and update the game. Step 8. Run the game. Make sure it runs adequately it runs on this hp compaq nc8430 with the default video card drivers in 8.. 4-6 fps but it runs. Step 9. Update your video card drivers as needed.
