I just bought a new computer with Win XP Pro as the OS. I tried to install Wizard's of the Coast Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Core Rules 2.0 and can't get it to install. The disk spins, the small gray menu comes up that asks me if I want to install it or not. I click the install button and nothing happens. What's going on here? Can anyone help me with this?
Re: Problem installing Advanced D&D Core Rules 2.0
Try going to My Computer, and seeing which drive the disk is in. It will say something like "Dungeons&Dragons(F:)". Then take that and click Start, Run, and enter that info. If that doesn't work, right-click the drive in My Computer and select "Explore" and look for something like "AutoRun" or "Install". Hope that helps.

When you say that you are unable to play , do you mean its not loading ? unable to install it? do you get a specific error message when you try to launch it ?

Trying installing the game in compatibility mode by right clicking on the EXE file on the medium used to start the install for the game and click properties. A window should pop up with a tab called Compatibility. Under compatibility mode click the check box to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" In the drop down menu click Windows 95.

I have Heroes of Might and Magic 5 Running on Win 7. There were many patches to install before this title worked(on my computer). Have you installed all the available updates for it?
Here are 2 sites that have the compatibility options: http://techpaul.wordpress.com/2009/06/28/compatibility-tricks-for-old-programs-new-machines/ http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/316-compatibility-mode.html
If that does not work, you can also try to set up XP mode in Win 7: (Note: you need to have Win 7 Pro, Enterprise, or Ultimate for this one) Win 7 Home Premium does not support XP Mode. http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/reviews/2010/01/windows-xp-mode.ars/
This is your game's Minimum System Requirements: OS: Windows XP SP3/Vista SP2 Processor:
Intel Core 2 DUO E4700 (2.6 GHz) / AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Memory: 1
Gb Hard Drive: 8 Gb free Video Memory: 256 Mb Video Card:
nVidia GeForce 7800 / ATI Radeon X1800 Sound Card: DirectX Compatible DirectX:
9.0c Keyboard Mouse DVD Rom Drive
Some incompatibility. Try right clicking on the installer EXE and changing options in the "compatibility mode" tab.
Try to run as Windows 95, Windows 98, disable visual themes, advanced text support, run it on 256 colors... try everything - it could work. But since it's something made for an OS developed more than 10 years ago, it will be hard to get it working.
If it still won't install, then your best hope is to install a Virtual Machine software (like VMWare) and install a copy of Windows 9X on it, so you can run the game virtualized.
