I downloaded the Sniper Elite V2 demo a couple days ago and i tried to install it but i get a message: Sniper Elite V2 requires "Platform update for windows vista" (KB971512) to be installed and this doesn't seem to be present on your computer.

But i don't have vista, i have xp, please help

DirectX 10 games require both OS support (Vista and Win7) and video card support (Geforce 8000 series, Radeon HD 2000 series, or newer.)

It has been said there for quite a while now.. The game doesn't support directx 9, simple as that. Time to upgrade, XP isn't as great as some people still think.

Nothing we can do. You need to read the requirements of games before purchasing them.

Contact support, they may be able to refund you. The forums can't help with that...
