Can't install some games/programs

Posted: 01-04-2009, 02:20 PM

About every second install is success, but I can't install som
programs/games at all no matter how many times I try. When I start setu
InstallShield Wizard comes up, but after it's done happens nothing las
thing what InstallShield does is "Preparing to Install...", but i
doesn't finish just shutsdown

I have tried to find out help, but without results..

Games what I have tried to install are Call of Juarez and Age o
Empires III. (I have found many players using vista with these games an
found player who go aoe3 working with exactly same windows he had othe
problem

I made up that the problem is only with games/programs what are no
made for vista, but should still work with patch or something afte
install..

Kossuranta, have you tried running as administrator? right-click on the
setup.exe (don't use the autorun when you insert the dvd) and select "run as
administrator"

Hope that helps!
Mark

Kossuranta, my first suggestion is have you looked at forums for thos
particular game companies. Like whoever makes AOE 3 or Call of Juarez
Check out those forums first to see if there something on there abou
other vista users having the same problem. It could be vista related bu
that would be your best bet to look at first. If you come up wit
nothing then you can come back here and we can try and help diagnos
your issue
