Problems installing far cry..

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Well, when I tried to install far cry last night, it installed one time, but i chose the option to install the videos so they wouldnt need to run from the DVD...well, when I tried starting up the game, it told me to insert the dvd? ***? so I un-installed and at a certain part, it just cant find the files anymore? why?!?!!

Its at the part where it creates the folder for registration with the url and xml crap...

I dont see why it would install once and not ever work again :|, and why if i chose to install the videos on the hard drive, it still asked for the dvd...

I had the same sort of thing and here's how I fixed mine....

1 - backup your saved games
2 - do a complete uninstall
3 - reboot and then delete the old installation folder
4 - reinstall Farcry and then reboot
5 - Before running the game, install the latest patch

Well I really dont know, but here. If you need to recover info I used these to find some important info from xp. maybe the situation is simular. I dont know why a complete un-install, would'nt solve the problem. When you you re-do the installation, Select a different browse place to put it (not Default). That worked on a program I had the same Problem with.
Heres some links.

Maybe too be sure Go RUN > d:/setup (Did i do that right)
If you go explore and sift through you ought to find a launch, exe, or Install folder. All should work.

you can delete them but you shouldn't, because they are for different applications you have used install shield to install.

edit: run> autorun.exe on your opti drive, that should bring up the loader??? if that is what you are having a problem doing????
