I need helping installing the game on Windows 7. My benchmark score is 2490, not great, but it should work. I have my 1.0 disc and I have downloaded the client from: http://www.finalfantasyxiv.com/playersdownload/na/
I have installed it as specified in the instructions on that page. When I load it, it get a plain black window, with only the title bar visible. Nothing happens, even if left for an hour. There are no error windows or error codes.
I have restarted windows.
I have changed these settings in every possible combination:
I have loaded msconfig and Un/Loaded system services.
Run Installer and Client as administrator, Run not as adminstrator, Changed compatibility for XP SP3, Vista SP2, Windows 7
Updated Windows/Internet Explorer/Java
Internet Options-- Privacy settings to Medium High, En/Disabled Protected Mode, ffxiv.com and square-enix.com on Trusted Sites
Read-only En/Disabled on "My Documents/My Games" and "Program Files (x86)\SquareEnix"
I don't know what else to do, any advice would be appreciated.
