So it's working online now (great). I'm having fun so far, I wanted to make sure it will work tomorrow for me while I'm sitting bored in the hospital most of the day. At this point, without an Internet connection it's pulling up the screen that says I don't have a license again.
Things I've tried based on the forums:
* Launching as administrator (I'm in Windows 7)
* Moving the game folder out of "Program Files" directly into the c:\ drive
Neither of these are allowing me to fire it up offline. Is there something I'm missing?
