Moving to problems & help. Well, try searching your entire registry then, and not just HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

Also delete everthing from the registry as once that is gone, it will detect game as not installed.

Deleting everything from the registry will f**k up your machine and you'll have to reinstall everything, including windows.

hey guys. u dont need to delete crap off the registry. The game makes a setup file somewhere in C ive forgotten where :S , if u can find that just delete it, and insert the disk and it will make a new 1 and work. I had the same problem , but now it is fixed, Im sorry i cant be more helpful about where the file is , it was a long time ago, but i remeber going on search and looking in C: for files called sierra, avp2, avp, and all that , and thats how i found it. Just keep searching for the file , i know how annoying the problem can be , so good luck
