That's a first never heard of that before. I do recall having install problems way back when the game came out and I was using first edition Windows 98. The game works best on Windows 98 2nd addition, XP and (now) Vista but I understand you have to disable visual themes for Vista and non-english versions of XP for the game to work...

Aww. I see. So i need to disable visual themes. I know how to do that once the game is installed but not before. Any ideas. Thanks for you help.

I assume you have Vista. Insert your game`s CD (or DVD; I don`t have this game, so I`m taking a guess) into your CD/DVD drive, close whatever appears on the screen, go to "My Computer", right click on CD/DVD drive icon and choose "Open" or "Explore". Now, look for "Setup.exe" or "Install.exe" or whatever the installation .exe file for that game is called and right click it. Choose "Properties", go to "Compatibility" tab and do this: - set compatibility mode for Windows XP (Service Pack 2) - enable running with Administrative priviledges - disable Desktop Composition - click Ok and manually run the installation by using that .exe file
