Can't run 1701 Ad with Windows XP SP3

1701 AD has been on my computer and played successfully for almost a year.

I recently installed Windows XP SP3. Tonight I couldn't start 1701, I couldn't uninstall 1701 nor could I re-install.

The message I got when trying to install 1701 was:

1701 AD Autorun
Could not start setup.exe
Operation: open file.\\setup.exe
Parameter: Directory: E:\flags:10

When I try to use the setup.exe it tries to read the disk but keeps telling me to insert the originial disk which I have.

I'm even getting errors when I try to go the http://support.asyr.com/

Use restore point and go back to before SP3. Wait a couple of weeks and download it again. They should have the bugs out by then.

1701 AD starts then the computer shuts down and restarts


Make sure your computer is up to date and at the exact or higher server. Any lower or different computer than the specifications will not let the game progress. If you got this used, than you will have to make sure that it isn't scratched or anything, that could stop it. To my computer to it did that. Are you sure that it shut down? Not just make the screen totally black? No versions of this game have been made to work on windows vistas. Make sure there are no viruses in the disc or computer.
