Halo2 for Vista won't install

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I went and bought a copy of HALO2 for the PC and all I get is the install splash screen then nothing. OH I can install a dedicated server but none of the options for the game itself work. MS wants $35 just to talk and I looked around the net but haven't come across soemone with this issue. Yes its a legit Vista copy and right now I am downloading Razor1911 Repack2 version and use the store bought CD KEY to run it. Any other ideas or links?

I would try looking on the CD itself for an installer then running that. You can bypass the CD's startup screen alot of the time that way.

tried that, I am makinfg an ISO and downloading the Razor repack 2 and using my store bought key. Nothing works other than the server install. Once I click on any form of install, run it from command line, it stops. I uninstalled all virtual drives googled all over for help, nothing. I gueess its time to throw monwy at MS, as if they didn't take enough of that already.

FOUND MY ANSWER, REALLY DUMB WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT.

So after selecting full install, it closes?

Try this..
Goto start
Click Run
paste this is without the quotes services.msc

Scroll down until you see "Secondairy logon"
Right click it
Select properties
set Startup type to "Automatic"

I wish more adults would pay attention to the problem, but it took 3 days to resolve it, and everything activated fine.


















(Restart computer if needed)
Try the installer again

I would get comments like, "you need Vista" or "Its a DX10 game you rtard".
