hi.. i have a major problem. i cant install the game i instert disk 1.. autorun it... the menu appears.. i click install... it opens the setup.exe program... i enter in my cd key.. then click on ok twice (the valid window the second" then on the "strongly recommend that you exit all windows programs before running setup program" i click on next.. and then it closes as if i had canceled installation! do i have to end-task explorer!?!?! tried it in all my drives which meant i had to open the comp up to switch over wires from the dvd to cd to see if it was the drives or sumthin.... but no matter what... SETUP.exe wont go past that strongly recommend bit. heres my system setup: C:\ 80 gb hdd D:\ 7/8 gb hdd E:\ DVD-rom (swappable with normal cd-rom) F:\ CD-RW

Nvidia TNT2 32mb graphics AMD 700mhz processor (bios and dxdiag say duron... system prop ses athlon.. then at times they seem to take turns in saying the other one..) 384mb RAM WIndows Me (latest updates installed) dx 9 installed from the ef2 cd

um, any1 tell me whats wrong? as far as i see... the cd aint scratched, it aint a copy since i bought it from GAME (for us UK players, is prolly the top Computer Game store in the UK .. http://www.game.co.uk i think) , my system passes with the "ok" mark in part of it... the rest is good...

im beginning a MANUAL installation , thats minus the registry entries cud sum1 screenie thier ef2 folder and subdirectories so i can see what SHOULD b there. this is ridiculous.. if this dont work then im formatting and going to win 98 (as i only have me and 98)

advice please!

if its a fualty setup.exe file then i should get a refund AND a new ef2 cd for my trouble. *hopes like hell*

:(

When you explore your 2 cd's, all the game files are already in the correct folders. Just open the Setup/Data/ folder and copy whatever is in there to the folder you want EF2 to be in. (like C:/ef2/ or whatever)
