I've been trying to solve the same problem. Here's a solution I discovered that worked for the same problem in Vista; it may work also for XP.

To install and play Mortal Kombat 4 in Vista:

Click setup.exe.
Choose installation folder (create it later).
Get error message.
Do not click "Clean up."
CTRL-SHIFT-ESC and kill setup.exe process.

Create installation folder (selected during setup).
Copy all files in DATA folder on CD to installation folder.
Rename MK4.exe to Mortal Kombat 4.exe.

Install patch (optional).

FIGHT!

It could be several things......
What os? XP?
It could be that it did not install the start menue short cut.
try going to the folder if it got that far and try to start the game.
How much free space is on the hard drive?
Are you installing from a disc? Is it very clean or have finger prints? make sure it is spotless. use tooth paste or liquid hand or dish soap and only run the soap ONE WAY and not in a circle. the same goes with drying it. Use hot water too.

Right click on the executable file that starts the setup, typically setup.exe. Select Properties. Under Compatibility, set it to Windows XP SP3. If that doesn't work, it really won't work without you setting up a virtual machine and installing a copy of XP. If you're running Windows 7, you can download a Windows XP virtual machine to run. It's called XP Mode. Instructions can be found by searching for XP Mode in the Start menu's Help and Support.

I cant save the game... every time i try doing that i get the same error: "Save failed! there was an error while saving the current game. Please check you're savegame directory and try again."


There should be a "GTA San Andreas User Files" folder in your "my documents". Make sure it's there. If it's not there, create it, if it's there, try manually deleting all the save files and creating new ones.

Problem installing Caesar 3 on Windows Vista


Hi!,
I'm using a vista premium SP 1.. So I did got the above errors.
What i did was, explore the disc-->right click setup.exe and click properties--> compatibility tab--> select run for win xp 2 and under admin.

Then when I installed I choosed a MINIMAL install option. If you the the above step yet choose full the error comes up.
Should work :))

Its annoying to insert disc everytime when you wanna play because of the minimal installation option but i figured to 'burn' and .iso image to my hard disk and use a cd/dvd image mounting tool. This part is purely optional tho:P

Seems like your graphic card is not supported. Its a older version. My first solution would be update your driver for your graphics card: http://driver.wareseeker.com/download/visiontek-radeon-9250-agp-8.072.rar/1e97d07a01 or http://www.soft32.com/Download/Free/VISIONTEK_RADEON_9250_AGP/4-172246-1.html

If that doesn't fix it (which I don't think it will), you might just have to buy yourself a better graphics card and/or computer.
