I can't install Battlefield 1942 Road to Rome on my computer. I'm running BF1942, and various mods of it, with no dificulties. When I try to install the game, the install shield window comes up and promts me to select next, which should bring up the serial# verification screen. Instead, when I select the next button my computer reboots. I've gone through all the availble fix's with EA's tech people. I've also tried all the fixes posted on the net that relate to problems similar, but not the same, to mine. Nothing has worked. Any suggestions at all (besides give the game to my brother-in-law) would be much appreciated.

Have you tried reinstalling BF1942, apply the patch and then install R2R?
Yep, uninstalled everything having to do with BF1942, including all mods and updates. Edited references to BF1942 out of the registry. Tried installing games and patches in various orders. Nothing worked ...

Hi Sgt Archangel,
you've tried all the obvious steps except one - the CD or the CD drive, it could be a faulty CD - unusual but it does happen - and it's unusual but in some cases it can cause rebooting. Do you have the facility to check your disk on another PC? or try installing from another drive? Try copying all the RtR files from the CD onto a directory on your HDD and installing from there.
Oh yes, have you disabled firewalls and anti-virus before installing? that can sometimes cause problems.

Thanks for the reply Poc ... Tried everything you mentioned except installing from hard drive instead of cd. RTR installs fine on a windows 98 comp I have. Another thought I had was to move my hard drive into a different comp and try installing there ...
Loaded game into the hard drive and tried to install from there ... no luck ...
