Hi, The installer looks for a copy of wolf in the following locations: 1) The default location "C:\Program Files\Return to Castle Wolfenstein" 2) "C:\Program Files\wolf" 3) "C:\Program Files\rtcw" 4) "C:\Program~1\Return~1" 5) "C:\games\Return to Castle Wolfenstein" 6) "C:\games\wolf" 7) "C:\games\rtcw" 8) "C:\games\Return~1" and a few other places, if it cannot find wolf in any of these places it will ask you if it can search your entire C: drive. SO since you are getting this message, it means you have wolf installed on another drive (the version of the installer I have, cannot search any other drives), so you MUST browse for your installation manually, using the browser in the installer see pic: browse_rtcw.gif browse for your wolf folder, and click ok :) Hewster

mm this is very odd... can you tell me the following: 1) your operating system (2000, xp 98 ect) 2) the version of wolf you have, ie the old original wolf, the GOTY edition or the latest plateinum / extended edition (comes with ET ) If you have the platinum edition , and Activision have decided to call the wolf executable something else other than "WolfMP.exe" I'm gona be sending then an e-mail to complain !!! If you are fairly competent at using your comuter, can you look in your RtCW folder, and tell me the names of the .exe files there ?? If there is not a file called "WolfMP.exe" we can do a quick fix for you to get the installer to work :) Hewster

I think there might be something to the "Is this only for retail versions" question. I've never installed the trial version. I don't know what EXE's are included.... Does trial even include Multiplayer?

Dam youre right Queeg, didn't notice he meant the demo !!!! Yes.. WildWest will only work on the full retail copy of Wolf, and it must be patch to version 1.41 Hewster

correct bw183, You need to get the retail version of RtCW. I believe you can still buy it here: http://games.activision.com/games/wolfenstein/ then (if you need to get the upgrade to 1.41 try this link: http://www.gaminguk.net/download.php?id=37331 good luck and good gaming.
