Oregon Trail 5th Edition installation fails at 13% with a "Severe" pop-up message that says: Cannot Create Directory Current File:*.* I am running the installation with the administrator account on Windows...


I found the answer to this problem. The problem is the install tries to write to files in the c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents directory. For some reason, that directory had lost the ownership. Try searching for "my documents access denied". For XP home, I had to boot in safe mode, then take ownership of the directory. Once I did this, the install could write to the directory and it installed!

Installing xp


Once you have installed Vista which is a higher version than XP, it is not possible to install XP after having installed Vista. The best way around is to uninstall Vista, load XP first and the again install Vista on a diff. partition. Now it should be operable with the choice to switch to the OSat your convenience.....sodeep

Oregon Trail 4th Edition won't install on xp


You better dig that old Win98 machine out of the closet and fire it up. Oregon Trail doesn't want to install properly even when you run the install and set up in Compatibility mode (95 or 98). There is some issue with the version of DirectX it wants to use as well.

Help me..whats going on with windows xp home edition


When installing a new operating system, all file saved will be deleted. Since you've lost all data, you might as well format the entire drive, and then reinstall the vista inspirat thing. Then, download an Avast! anti virus form avast.com. Download the home version, which is free and scan the computer for any viruses. Delete every last one of the suckers.
