Hi there, i was trying to install my BC on my laptop [Windows7] for the first time. I get the menu [Install, help, extras etc.] I click install but nothing happens does anyone know why?
Do you get a confirmation sound when you click the button or it literally doesn't do anything?
Go to Setup folder on the CD and try running the installation manually from there by clicking Setup.exe file.
If the installation seemingly gets stuck at loading the installation shield wizard, let it sit like that for some time (no more than 15 minutes). It should continue after awhile. Old(er) games sometimes do that when installing them on new(er) operating systems. No idea why, though. :clueless:
If that doesn't work, go back to Setup.exe file, right-click it, choose Properties, go to Compatibility tab and set compatibility mode for Windows XP (or even Windows 98) before running the installation again.
For what it's worth, I encountered the same problem earlier today. The setup dialog took almost 3 hours to appear. But it did appear, and the installation proceeded without another hitch. :)
3 hours? Yikes! It never took more than 15 minutes for me. If I had to wait that long, I'd give up, assume it's the lost cause and write the game off.
