I was able to redeem the code....supposedly. But...I can't the goddamn launcher to work. I've installed/reinstalled it 3 times now and when I go to run it, it just shows a blank grey window. This is on the latest Windows 10(1809). Anybody else having that problem? Looks like, for the mean time, I'm going to switch over to my Windows 7 disk and try that.

EDIT: Ha! Same exact thing on W7. WTF over?

@lexluthermiester +1 hands down for GoG. But other than that I'd rather use one game client instead of 5.
Agreed!...

...and this is one of the reasons why. When I buy(get) a game, I expect to be able to play it. No hassles, no fuss. Pay, install, play.

Any room for EA, and Activision?
I'm in no way, shape or form a fan of EA, but I really like sandbox racing games (Need For Speed), and any issues with Origin is usually fixed in 2-4 hours.
Any issues with Ubisoft is usually fixed within 2-4 months (The Crew 1+2)...and any Bethesda (any game) issues is usually solved within 2-never years :)

Please stop trying to get customers pulled in to yet another PC distribution platform.

Isn't it a straight http download once you get through the mess?

I mean that's about as launcher free as it gets.

Oh, guess not. It has a friggin' launcher...

NICE ONE!

I wonder if you can copy it to a new folder(for example C:\Games\Morrowind) and it would run? Have you tried?
