They had the same issue when BC came out. Turns out it was a grease mark on the disks. It sounds stupid but that was the problem. They had a bunch that got that on them. Try cleaning or borrowing someone elses disks to install. The disks don't matter only the cd keys are different. Another way around is to right click the cd drive and explore. Find install.exe and click on it. Your install should start then.

Installed game , go to play and error message pops up reading: Wrong Disk Inserted Please insert the original Gold Pack CD/DVD


Did the game come with more than once disc? You may have tried inserting the wrong disc.  If that isn't the case, you may need to download a crack for the game. 
Go to this link:http://m0004.gamecopyworld.com/games/pc_sw_empire_at_war.shtml
And download the file that says "Empire at War: Forces of Corruption [MULTI] No-CD/Fixed Image"
Replace the .exe file in your game directory (normally C://Program Files/"game") with the one that the crack included.
Hopefully your game will run now!

this is the definition: The component qualifier not present.
This error occurs when a file compressed inside Setup.exe cannot be extracted. Verify that there is sufficient disk space available in the Temp folder (or, if not, in the Windows or WinNT folder), and that Setup can write to those folders.

Download deamon tools lite.
http://www.daemon-tools.cc/ENG/downloads
That will allow you to make virtual drives. Put the files you downloaded into that drive. The game will see it as a disk in a cd drive and your should be able to install as normal.

Autorun will not work with the Wrath of the Lich KIng. It just asks me what program I want to use to open the the files. What should I do?


Try looking for an executable file on the CD itself. To do this click on my computer - Than right click on the disk drive the game is inserted into. Scroll down to explore on the right click menu, Once this screen is opened look for something that might say setup.exe or have a picture of the wow logo with an exe. attached on the end. After double clicking on that you should be good to go.

Install problem


Run the Setup.exe file in compatability mode (right-click the setup.exe icon and select properties, then select compatability and choose a 32 bit version of XP). The game was not tested on 64-bit Vista and isn't likely to work outside of 32 bit compatability mode.

You can still try to make the game compatible for installing it on the Windows Vista by following the steps below.

1. Insert the game disc in your CD-ROM drive, if the game setup or the autorun starts, exit it.

2. Open "Computer", Right Click the Cd Drive which has the game disk in it and select "Copy".

3. Go to your "Desktop" right click and then select "New" and click on "Folder" this should create a new folder on your desktop.

4. Open the New Folder and then Right Click and select "Paste".

6. After all the files are copied to the "New Folder" without any error messages then locate the file "Setup.exe" or "Setup" and right click and click on "Properties".

7. In the new window click on the "Compatibility" tab and run the program in compatibility mode for "Windows XP Service Pack 2" and then click on "Apply".

8. After applying changes double click on "Setup.exe" or "Setup" to launch the installation.

You can delete all the files copied from the CD after completing the installation

The game files need to be copied to the hard drive because the files on the game disk would not let you make changes while on the disk.

After the game is successfully installed right click on the game shortcut or the game "AOM.exe" in the root folder of the game and click and click on "Properties".

In the new window click on the "Compatibility" tab and run the program in compatibility mode for "Windows XP Service Pack 2" and then click on "Apply". (You can also try with the other options also)

The game files need to be copied to the hard drive because the files on the game disk would not let you make changes while on the disk.

The same set of steps can be used for installation of older games installation on Windows Vista.
