you are using CD's to install BF ? are you not aware of the tool called deamon tools and a thing called CD images ? saves a lot of time and your CDs stay mint
so get yourself some of those cd images, you got a legal copy so no harm done
and as someone stated before, check your registry delete everything related to BF42/BF2 then, clear out the "my documents folder" of any old files from bf2 maybe also uninstall punkbuster, this thing seems to create more trouble than it prevents people from cheating
then try starting with a new installation of BF (which ever you want)
Next: Battlefield 2 won't install :rolleyes: Installer just disappear when hes finished loading. It can just be the Battlefields or a error in my PC, but I'm not installing any games anymore. Going to call an expert. EDIT: Die Happy, I always first uninstall and then delete the folders. And yes I'm using CD's, not a fan of those download buys. (EA still owes me a Euro Force download.)
i m not talking about downloads from EA more like "community" iso-images if you get my drift ;)
about the installer thing : - vista? run installer with admin privileges / rights
no vista, never vista :p tried another small game, also crashes while installing. so it's in my PC.
Start>Run>type in "regedit"
Some of your problems will be solved if you simply remove every single Battlefield related thing from your PC. As well as PB. If your going to deal with the hastle everyday why not just try it.
Don't you think I removed everything already? It's a system problem.
I'm just saying. Just cause you uninstalled stuff and deleted folders.. its still on your PC ( especially the registration kes and etc). You never really said you did that. So I assumed you didn't.
If its a system problem, then ok.
My virusscanner has a shredder that completely removes all files unwanted.
