Greetings, I purchased Supreme Commander a year ago, and found that after I had installed it once. It would not let me re-install the game later on. Apparently this was part of the DRM package installed on the DVD. For purchased software how can this be both fair to the consumer or to the market in general? Why should I have to buy multiple copies of the same game for one computer just because I need to re-install. Hopefully things like this can be resolved by the FTC. ~Steve
