My neighbor got his client ready but his OS is Win XP.

Can I just copy his folder of the game even though mine is Windows 7?

*Sorry for the very noob question, just want clarifications.

Nah don't think it will work. You couldn't just copy the folder because your installation won't have a windows registry key attached to it.

usually you cant just copy folders since installation does all sorts of stuff

What you might be able to do is copy both his install folder and the installer he downloaded, then run the installer, let it finish, then copy the install folder over the existing one. This is typically how I transfer other MMOs between computers. It allows the installer to set everything up properly in Windows registry, but prevents the long download time through the patcher.

Hope it works for you!
