    There is everything but a start button! Bought and paid for. Can't play it.

    Hi Kirsten - I can see this purchase on our end. You should be able to download the tour, but payment also hasn't been finalised yet. If the email I've sent you with a few possible easy fixes isn't useful, you won't be charged for the tour.
