Game not installing

Post by mattwood » Wed Jan 05, 2011 3:16 pm

Hi, my brother got this game for Christmas. I have tried to install it on his laptop, but it gets to the menu where you can select "Install" but then it does nothing. I wondered if it was just his laptop since it runs Windows 7, not Vista as it says in the System Requirements. So I tried it on my laptop (which does run Vista) and it does exactly the same thing. Help would be appreciated, thanks.

You could try manually running the installer from the disk. There might be something going on which is preventing the launcher from finding the installer correctly. Look for a setup.exe or something similar on the disk.

Cheers

not installing windows 7

Post by marzipan » Sat Mar 12, 2011 6:34 am

hi I had a similar problem. (windows 7)
First of all halfway through setup it would tell me one of the files was a malware virus and then it aborted the setup. I fixed that and now it gets halfway through the setup before an error box says 'Could not open the uninstall executable for writing: access to C:\windows\horrible histories ruthless romans\uninstall.exe was denied.
Help would be greatly appreciated thanks.
