Hi, I downloaded Medieval Lords and Mounted it to a CD, I also tried it in a virtual drive, The problem is when I go to install it it comes up and says must restart CP, when I click for it to restart, it does restart but then nothing happens and it doesn't install the game. Ive tried everything, checked everything, DirectX ect, but nothing is working, Im running Vista on a Dell Inspiron 1525, A good computer. Any Advice?

Check you have the correct Operating system and that you have the original game. If you are running the game on a machine with Vista or Win 7 you will have problems. Check this link to see if you have the spec required.
The game is most likely not compatible with Vista. First port of call should be to try to run the game in compatibility mode, to do this all you have to do is right click on the shortcut on the desktop, click on "Properties" and then goto the "Compatabilty" tab then select the "Compatability Mode" option and from the drop down menu select "Windows XP". Try to launch the game again, if this doesn't work then try re-installing the game.

As far as I know, there isn't a patch for Windows 7. Have you tried running it in compatibility mode? There are two ways to do this:
OPTION 1 - TROUBLESHOOT COMPATIBILITY
1. Right click on the programs shortcut, .EXE file, or installation program, and click on Troubleshoot compatibility. N.B.You will not have the Troubleshoot compatibilityoption available for pinned items in the Start Menuor on the Task Bar.
2. The wizard will now give you a list of options to choose from. Try each individual option, following the on-screen instructions.
If this doesn't work, you can try the following option.
OPTION 2 - THROUGH THE PROPERTIES PAGE
1. Right click on the programs shortcut, .EXE file, or installation program.
2. Click on Properties.
3. Click on the Compatibility tab.
4. Check the Run this program in compatibility mode for box.
5. Click on the drop-down menu arrow, and select which version of Windows the game was made for. N.B. Always pick the latest Windows version the game was made for a better chance of it running properly.
I hope this helps. If you require further assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.
