Hope this isn't redundant as I spent reading through countless dozens of posts for something similar to my experience.
So I just bought the game hours ago. Followed the great instructions on the ZAM forum getting the SE account and billing and promotional codes set up.
Moved on to install the game. So far so good for me, until I double click the Final Fantasy XIV desktop icon on my desktop.
Now the SE game manual says an update may or may not occur and I understand one took place today. My problem is I know of no one personally who plays this game to refrence if my PC is responding the way it should. There is no photo in the guide nor on their lodestone website to visually display what the customer experience may be.
When cicking the icon on my desktop I get a pop up black screen titled Final Fantasy XIV with a white pointing glove. Nothing else happens or sometimes it will say FINAL Fantasy XIV (Not Responding). But the Black screen and glove are always there mocking me.
Is this the box where the update should be occuring?
Is this what others specifically experienced?
If I leave the window open will it eventually respond (the little windows blue circle swirly is still thinking when I mouse over it)?
My internet connection is fine.
I just built this computer weeks ago Win 7 64, AMD X6 1055T, 8GB RAM, ATI HD 5800 Video, I think it should be fine as far as set up goes.
The one thing i did not understand on the lodestone website what "64-bit operating systems will run in WoW64 (Windows on Windows 64) mode" meant and if it was something I had to change myself on my system.
Thanks kindly and I look forward to some helpful feed back.
