I bought the digital download version of resident evil 5 and now i am having problems installing the game. i wanted to know whether the problem was vista or my operating system in general or the download. So what is the best operating system for this game?

i don't know if there is any 'best OS' for the game
If you have Vista or Win7 you can take advantage of DirectX 10 (whatever benefits that gives you)

Make sure you have:
7GB free HDD space
@ least a Intel Pentium D or AMD Athlon64 X2
a DirectX 9 video card
Enough RAM

i'm sure you can find the system specs. somewhere
what system do u have?

Ok. Thanks.

That was my laptop.
I'm having the same problem installing the game on my pc too

I have
Windows Vista
HP
AMD Athlon 64 >< 2 DUAL CORE PROCESSOR 4400+ 2.30GHZ
MEMORY RAM 2.00GB
32-BIT OPERATING SYSTEM
AND I DO BELIEVE MY VIDEO CARD IS NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430

Do you think this meets the game requirements?

"DirectX 9.0c/Shader3.0 or higher compatible, NVIDIA GeForce 6800 series or higher, ATI HD 2400 Pro or higher, VRAM 256MB or higher"

so no,
your video card isn't not compatible...
i suggest an upgrade... nothing to extreme, because it would just bottleneck your CPU. Although you can pretty easily OC your processor by a few hundred Mhz to get some more headroom
