    Default Only getting a Mini Download for the Head Start Cllient

    I used the link off the main web page under the headstart section to download the Live Client. That link gave me "Rift_LIVE_Patcher_setup.exe" which i run and then it went straight to the installer. at no point was there a 8 gig download like everyone else. Also i'm not sure why but when i had the same issue with the Beta download. my folder that contained the Beta Client was less than 50 mb. i only played beta for a week and never bothered fixing it since i was at the tail end of beta. But i did have massive lag and just assumed that i had download a mini version of it that loaded most of the content during play like how D&D Online is. it offers a similar game install option. but now i would like to fully install the game. any suggestions or am i missing something? is there more that i'm supposed to do to activate the download or should the Live Patch Installer just supposed to automatically start it during the process before i can get to the log in screen?

    Make sure you run the game as administrator, and have firewall permission, also i would move the game folder to secondery partition
