Everytime I try to play the demo on either on of my two systems I get not enough drive space. On machine has 37GB free and the other has 17GB free. This is very frustrating. How can I play the demo?

Try running scandisk.
Sometimes files begin misreporting their actual sizes...I once had 4GB left on my main drive but I kept getting "Out of Space" errors. Ran scandisk...Turns out I only had 15 megabytes.

I had the same error message each time I tried to start a new game. My issue was that I had previously re-routed the "My Documents" folder on my computer to another computer on my home network. When the game installed it put some of the files in this folder on the other computer, causing the error when I tried to start a new game. I uninstalled the demo, set the "My Documents" folder back to the default target location, re-installed the demo, and it works now. Hope this helps!

This would descrbe the exact problem I am having because I run a Domain in my house where each users documents folder is stored on the server. I guess my question becomes which patch will fix this so I can actually play the game???????
