After Horizon 4 released I uninstalled my FM7. Now I wanted to get back to FM but the download size is too big for my bandwidth now. I mean my internet has unlimited bandwidth but the speed is slow and it is not stable so it definitely takes more than a day.

My friends haven't uninstalled his FM. So I was thinking can I copy his game to my PC? He said it's possible but there're some steps to take? I don't know, if you know please tell me.

Me and my friend are both on PC.

You could try but I doubt it. FM7 gets installed with lots of embedded DRM; not sure that you would be able to get all the relevant certificates put into place.

There are registry entries as well that will not be made by just copying. That would be software piracy and you could get banned for life.

Okay now that's unbelievable. I also own the game now wouldn't the data be overwritten by my registry whatever it is?

You'll just have to download it, the UWP platform isn't very flexible.

Depending how you receive your internet, you could try connecting your PC direct to your Modem with a network cable by-passing Wireless or other connections to a router.

I'm on Comcast cable with a cable modem and router.
With my PC connected to the modem direct, I get twice as much download speed.

Good luck!
