I've been trying to install AvP2, the regular version. Not gold or primal hunt. I am unable to install it. Everytime I try to run it and I click "install" a message pops up which reads "Please go to the control panel to install and configure system components." I've looked for any information I could possibly find, both on wikipedia and on google. Wikipedia says that the system requirements are

"450 MHz CPU, 128 MB RAM, 16 MB video card RAM, 4X CD-ROM drive, DirectX 8.0, 750 MB available hard disk space, Windows 98"

. The operating system I'm running is Windows XP, and all information I've found regarding whether or not XP would cause a problem as opposed to 98 has shown that it doesn't. I wasn't too sure about the status of DirectX on my computer, so I decided to play it safe and download DirectX 9.0c. It's now downloaded and installed on my computer. I'm using a Radeon 9200 videocard. I know I have the CPU and RAM to run the game as well.

Can anyone tell me what stupid little thing I'm missing? :\

-Thanks guys.

Wikipedia is wrong, these are the requirements: Pentium® 3 or Athlon™ 450 MHz or higher, Windows® 95/98/2000/Me, 128MB RAM or higher, 750MB hard disk space, 4X CD-ROM drive or greater, 16MB DirectX® 8 compatible D3D video card, 16 Bit DirectX® 8 compatible sound card, Mouse & Keyboard, 56K DirectPlay compatible TCP-IP Internet connection required for Internet play, Network Interface card required for LAN play. It sounds like something is up with the operating system although I know for sure that the game works great with XP, and it runs ok with Vista also. lol no idea if you're having security problems, you ought to try going to the control panel and installing AvP2 from there.
