    I have plenty of space left on my hard drive. The game works on windows ME and it did install some time back on WinXP. I then updated to SP3 on Windows XP and I think thats when I could not run it. Also on ME the shortcut would not work . I had to run the game from the Start Menu/Programs/XICAT/JAS path.

Since I have no idea on what all you have done, I have some questions / suggestions.
1st: Have you Defragmented your computer? If not this month, please do so ASAP.
2nd: How much free space is left on your hard drive? You need over 15% free space.
3rd: Have you cleaned out you cookies, temp Files & Temp. Internet Files?
4th: Every item you add or install anything on your computer, it starts running each time you boot up.
This eats up your limited power and processor.To see this you will need to use the CRTL/ALT/DELETE keys to open up your TASK MANAGER
On the right side you will see a TAB called START UP. Each item that is checked or ********** is running in the background.
You do not need this stuff running. Its a gift of Microsoft to make it start faster for you and is no longer a needed tem since you have so much power.
Uncheck most if not all items, like MSN or YAHOO chat, Games and anything not directly related to the computer operation.
Has it ever worked? If so, how long ago?
if not too far back, do a system restore or wash the discs in very warm water and liquid soap. Always was discs in one direction only and never in a circle. dry same way.
please let me know.

Why is rainbow six vegas saying error instaling wizard shield


Sometimes original CD-versions of games have copy protection that turns against the user when installing the game. Also this kind of error could happen when you have bad or scratchy CD or some other utility installed that triggers the copy protection. To avoid such problems I suggest to buy the digital version of Rainbow Six Vegas 2 from Steam instead since it is already patched too.

Under Windows XP, Directx 9, system asks for cd to be inserted, though it is already there. Mike. (Central Victoria, Australia)


Did you install the game from your first cd/dvd drive? If you have more than one that is. Some of the older games put the path of the cd as an actual location, so if you installed this from your G: drive cd/dvd and then added another bit of hardware like a harddrive, then the drive letters might have got changed. You could look at the games .ini file and see if there is any reference to cd paths and change it to reflect where you have it inserted. Just make sure you make a backup of the file before you make any changes just in case something goes wrong.
Star Wars Rogue Squadron had the same limitation where it would keep asking for the disc, so I had to just keep trying my other drives till I hit the right one.
Hope that helps.

Possibly the uninstall has not been complete last time you uninstalled Hidden & Dangerous 2 Sabre Squadron.

Try to run uninstall again and then install. Also delete everything you can inside C:\WINDOWS\Temp and use EasyCleaner...

If still fails, try uninstall and install in safe mode.

As a final solution. Just do a clean reinstall for whole Windows. For such a great game it is worth it.
