Sounds like a driver communication issue. Please try uninstalling the driver and related software, reboot, and then re-install. Make sure to reboot in between.

I purchased the mysterious adventures bundle. 16 complete games. it will not install on my windows 7


Go to the web site and find the game and it's description.

There should be a section describing system requirements. See if Win7 is listed/supported.

You can also try these two other options (may or may not help).

1) Try Running the install as Administrator
Right click on the file you want to run (install) and select "Run as Administrator"

2) If it is older software, try running/installing the software in in XP Compatibility Mode
To read about XP compatibility mode:

Go to start menu
Select Help and Support
Type xp compatibility in the search window

Select #2, Make older programs run in this verison of windows

There are instructions on how run the install using compatibility mode.

Halo 2 for pc


The reason is, it only happens when you try to install Halo 2 on Windows XP.

The Game gets installed perfectly on Windows Vista

Because, I have installed and played the game on Windows Vista. But, when I de-graded my OS to Windows XP and tried to install the game. It gave me the same error message.

So, if your OS is Win XP then try install on Win Vista if you have it or on your friends PC.

But if you are already on Win Vista then please do let me know.

Also could please let me know whether your trying to Auto install the game or you are manually trying to install the game by clicking Step.exe?


I would be glad to find some help for you in this regard.
