Is there anyone out there able to help me?

I have only recently discovered this site it is wonderful. It wasn't until yesterday that I installed my first mod. It was fun and everything, but when I try to re-install the game in it's original state, it won't do so. For some reason it doesn't want to install. At first I thought there was something wrong with my cd and I gave the cd to my nephew, but it worked on his computer. So I took my other copy of armada II out of the closet(yes I am a big fan :rock: ) and that one worked fine. I was anxious to try another mod, so I did. Only when I uninstalled that mod and tried to re-install my armada II in its original state, it refuses my cd again.

I've even been so smart as to make back-ups. Even made a restore point in Windows-XP, but I can't seem to get my orignal back.

Thanx in advance.

Thanx, but I already tried to remove the activision folder.

It is as if Windows recognizes the cd and does not want to install from it. If I insert the cd it crashes and tells me that the process is unresponsive. The same thing happened the last time. I had two copies of armada, and the first time it did the same thing. It did not want to install from my first copy, but it did from my second one. But I don't feel like buying a third one. Even though I will if there's no other choice. :D

The best way to uninstall a mod is to uninstall the mod (if it has a uninstaller), then uninstall the game, save any files you want (save games/maps) and then install the game and delete the Armada II folder (like cds said). After you have done that install the game again and patch to the current version.

Is Armada II still in the registry?

If it crashes, disable auto-autoplay (lol), open (not autoplay) the disk, hit "setup.exe" and there you go.

Thanx for replying again guys. I took your advice, but it doesn't seem to work. I uninstalled everything, I took the advice of cleaning my registry of everything resembling armada or star trek but that doesn't seem to work.

I tried disabeling the autoplay and hitting "setup.exe", but it doesn't work.

I get an error message and already checked on the activision site what it means but I could not find anything.

The error message is titled: [COLOR=red]Setup Initialization Error[/COLOR]

And the message is: [COLOR=red]Setup is unable to decompress and copy all of the program files needed to proceed with the installation. Error 112.[/COLOR]

Once again, all of you, thanx for trying to help.

i have had the exact same problem and have found a solution. just click on reinstall and leave your computer for a while. for some reason it takes the computer a long time to get going w/ the reinstall process. and its not that my computer is slow or anything , i have a 2.4GHz processor.

deliting the Armada 2 folder and reinstaling the game always works
