When I try to run the file on my Vista equipped lap top I follow the prompts: - Destination Folder "C:/Program Files"
- Program Manager Group "Games"
- Disk space required 780899k
Disk space remaining 102769699k
Then error displays: "The file 'C:/Program Files/TopWare/Dream Pinball3D/UNWISE.EXE' could not be opened. Please check that your disk is not full and that you have access to the destination directory. The System cannot find the path specified."

It looks to me like the Destination folder location has a typo(or 2), see after where it says \Windows\\ there should be only one \ so if your installing via steam or other similar installer check in the setting for the FOLDERS and check destination folder when you see the path try removing the \ at the start.
Alternatively manually go to the folder C:/Legend/
copy the file vcl40.bpl to C:/Windows/Temp/
You may find their are more files u need to do this with but should flag them up as u go, but hopefully you can just correct the destination path error. Hope this fixes it.
WIndows Vista allows you to run it in compatibility mode for previous Windows versions such windows XP. I suggest you try it and see if it works. To do this, Right-Click on Pinball.exe and click properties
In the properties window there is an option called compatibility. CLick on that tab. Once you click that you will see an option called run this program in compatibility mode for... Click the checkbox next to that and choose Windows XP service Pack 2 from the list
That should most likely do the trick. Give it a shot and let me know so that we can try something else. PS: Bad rating = No Further help!
The Windows 7 should automatically convert compatibility for software, but to force compatibility manually:
1. Right-click the installer, and go it's properties (this is the last option in the drop-down list). 2. Click the compatibility tab 3. Check the compatibility mode box and select the option from the list that matches the operating system you know the game last worked on. 4. Apply the changes, press OK, and re-run the installer.
Hi, try installing your red alert 2 installer to another computer.If it works your computer might be the problem. Check if you have enough space for the game.Try changing the destination folder. If it does not work your installer might be the problem.
The game was released in 1998, and was developed for Windows 95/98.
To make the game run on Windows XP, try the compatibility for the installation and after it is installed use the same steps for making the game executable file compatible.
Note: Some game ".exe" file (executable file) would let you make changes in
the Compatibility option, whereas older games might not give that
option at all.
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 98/ Windows Me" and then click on "Apply". (You can also try "Windows 95")
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
After the game is successfully installed right click on the game shortcut or the game ".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 98/ Windows Me" and then click on "Apply". (Again, you can also try "Windows 95")
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.
are lot of files that need to be changed in order to get full
functionality and to communicate with operating system and the
hardware, hence there is no guarantee that the game might run even in
cases where you will successfully install an older version of the game
with the above mentioned steps.
