Hi Nicho_1337,

The computer just THINKS it's installed. When you uninstall a program normally it removes all the info inthe computers registry. If you just delete it it leaves the info there. When you try to reinstall, the install program first checks the registry, sees all the stuff there and thinks it's already installed. What you need to do is either edit the registry manually (Start-run-regedit) and delete ALL the references to BF1942 ar get yourself a registry cleaning program of some sort to help. Once you have done that it will install with no problems.

Have fun
