    @VanIslePimp.

    That is what I am looking into for Tinker.

    Downloaded the game to my desktop PC and also working on getting it on my laptop so I can continue playing when away from home. I will read over the license agreement and check online to see if I can obtain more details as DRM restrictions can be different with different Games for Windows games like any other PC title.

    I did find a post from GFWLMod that states the game should be free indefinitely, so there may not be much to be concerned about.

    For those of you getting an error. Did you see my first post? I probably did not have clear enough suggestions. My bad.

    Please try doing the below steps and then if it still does not download for you, please post over in the Games for Windows Games on Demand forum.

    Here are the steps to take to download Tinker:

    1. Download the Games for Windows LIVE client from the LIVE area of http://www.gamesforwindows.com.
    2. After installation of the client, log into the GFWL client in a manner similar to logging into Windows Messenger.
    3. Once you see the box art for Tinker on the GFWL Marketplace, click on it to get to the marketplace section for the game.
    4. Click on big blue Download button under where it says FREE.
    5. The system will then give you a Confirm Purchase page where you should be on a section that says Use Credit Card.
    6. On this page, select the Use Microsoft Points tab instead.
    7. Then click on the Confirm Purchase button.
    8. If successful, you should see a Congratulations! This item has been purchased and added to your Download Queue.

    If the above steps do not work for you, then please visit the support forum for Games for Windows’ Games on Demand service at http://forums.gamesforwindows.com/50.aspx and most important follow the instructions in the pinned thread here http://forums.gamesforwindows.com/t/9156.aspx. Please be sure to include details such as your Windows operating system version and if you have installed all the available updates for Windows.

    Thanks for the update Major. I think we may have found a workaround though that I posted just a second ago. If this is not necessary, please let me know. Don’t want to add to the confusion.

    To people getting the error did you try siwtching from credit card to Microsoft points as the payment method like the very first comment said to? Not sure why it matters what payment option you pick for something free but that method does indeed work to download it.

    I do not even have an option for CC. Its all on MS points. Oh well, maybe its a demand thing.

    How do you do that? I don’t see the options listed in those steps. I am only presented with the ability to download with points. A credit card option is not presented to me.

    Maybe they removed the credit card option since it was giving people problems but sounds like the problems must have spread to the Microsoft points option too. I downloaded it not long after the update went Live so maybe more demand since then has caused more issues or something.

    Thanks for the update Major, it could just be a demand thing since probably a lot of people are trying to download stuff.
