SOURCE: Cannot Install

It might not run on vista. Vista in incredibly picky and most games needs patches. Best bet is to go to the sims website and see if they have the patch for vista.

SOURCE: Problem installing Caesar 3 on Windows Vista

Hi!,
I'm using a vista premium SP 1.. So I did got the above errors.
What i did was, explore the disc-->right click setup.exe and click properties--> compatibility tab--> select run for win xp 2 and under admin.

Then when I installed I choosed a MINIMAL install option. If you the the above step yet choose full the error comes up.
Should work :))

Its annoying to insert disc everytime when you wanna play because of the minimal installation option but i figured to 'burn' and .iso image to my hard disk and use a cd/dvd image mounting tool. This part is purely optional tho:P

I cannot install any software. NSIS error!


Hi

1.Go to "Start," click on "Run," type "cmd" in the text box, and then click on "OK."
2.On to the black window that opens up, click and drag the software installation file icon that you wish to install. For example, suppose you want install Google Talk on your computer and the setup file (googletalk-setup.exe) is stored in the "C:\\Software" folder. Click and drag the "googletalk-setup.exe" icon from the Software folder, onto the black window. Once you have dragged it, the entire path (C:\\Software\\googletalk-setup.exe) shows up on the black screen.
3.Press the spacebar on your keyboard and type "/NCRC". In our example, "C:\\Software\\googletalk-setup.exe /NCRC".
4.Press "Enter." The setup program will start now.


Note:

Even after following the above procedure, if the installation still does not start, then the installation file is damaged. Download a fresh copy of the software and try again.

your HDD may be corrupted, re-installing windows vista is one option. Your best bet is if you have/ can obtain a copy of windows vista run setup and try the repair wizard in the windows vista setup, the wizard automatically finds errors and missing files and replaces them therefore solving any errors in your HDD. you can also try to use the recovery wizard from your recovery disc. best of luck

Have Dorland's Medical Dictionary. Will not run.


hi it seems that the install location from where you are trying is damaged. if its from an external source try copying it to your hard drive and installing from there. if that fails then ur source is damaged. you can download a copy of the software

one problem that could cause this error is lack of administrator rights,
right button click the setup.exe or whatever it called and select run as administrator,
Or if it's Vista try the compatiblity help , right button click the app, select properties and select run as XP service pack2 etc

"I receive an error message" (sic) What is it exactly, what happens? Also Install everything as Administrator, ALSO set the setup/install program's .exe in, Compatibility Mode for XP SP2. and Run the actual program's .exe as Administrator, too. Ensure all network settings are correct too.

Setup.exe has stopped working


If you are trying to install an older or possibly incompatible piece of software, you should:

1.)Navigate to the installer program (setup.exe) in Windows Explorer (My Computer).
2.)Right-click on it and choose "Properties".
3.)Choose the "compatibility" tab.
4.)Check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" box.
5.)Choose Windows XP (if you get to the end of these instructions and you get the same error, come back to this point and choose Windows 98).
6.)Click the "Ok" button at the bottom of the window.
7.)Go back to Windows Explorer (My Cmputer), and try to run the setup.exe again by double-clicking, or right-clicking and choosing "open".

Trying to install Math Blaster from ''Knowledge Adventure'' on new vista 64 machine. error on opening setup is ''The program feature ''??E:setup.exe'' cannot start or run due to incompatibity with 64-bit...


Well I do know that "most" 32bit software can be installed on a 64bit windows, unfortunately this one maybe be an exception. I searched all over the maker's websites and could not find a single hint of 64 bit support. One other thing you might try is to right click on setup.exe and run as an administrator , but considering the error you are recieving I don't think it will help. I don't think it is possible, sorry.

I'm unable to install Mortal kombat 4 in Windows XP SP 2. As soon as I activated setup, it exits with the error Msg "Start Menu Error". Please help


I've been trying to solve the same problem. Here's a solution I discovered that worked for the same problem in Vista; it may work also for XP.

To install and play Mortal Kombat 4 in Vista:

Click setup.exe.
Choose installation folder (create it later).
Get error message.
Do not click "Clean up."
CTRL-SHIFT-ESC and kill setup.exe process.

Create installation folder (selected during setup).
Copy all files in DATA folder on CD to installation folder.
Rename MK4.exe to Mortal Kombat 4.exe.

Install patch (optional).

FIGHT!
