    you operating system (windows) and game and your hardware (graphics card etc) arent working too well together.

    Do you have a graphics accelerator in your computer (something like a nvidia gforce or ATI Radeon ?)

    what are your computer specs ?

    CPU, RAM, Graphics card etc ?

    What game and what version of Windows ?

There is problem with the installation as there the installation procedure for games or any other software are very simple and straight forward so do not blame your installation.
There can be two reasons why the game becomes stuck
(1)You do not have enough RAM (For instance the game requires 800 MB and your PC has 512MB of RAM)
(2) Your CPU might be slow (like its 800 MHz while the game requirement is 1GHz)
To check this
(1)On the bottom of your Windows there is a task bar.
(2)Right click on it
(3) On the opening pop up menu select "Task Manager"
(4)On the opening window at the top tabs select "Performance" tab
(5)Turn on the game and observe the bar graph behavior of your CPU and RAM and you will easily find out which components of these two are being over used.

If there is lack of RAM or/and CPU you have to upgrade your computer or may be get a newer faster PC.
If you believe that there is nothing wrong with your hardware then check the media of your game. The game software might have corruptions. The DVD might be damaged you might find scratches on the DVD disc when you hold it at a particular angle on the disk.Try another DVD of the same game to arrive up with a solution.

Hi there if your computer has missing files or a file is corrupt and you need to repair the damage file, you can do this by using a recovery disk for the computer if you have one. If you do not have a recovery disk for the computer you can use the operating system disk to repair it, please follow these steps: insert the operating system disk into the CD/DVD drive, restart the computer, press F12 and choose boot from CD save and exit. While the computer is loading it will ask you to press any key to boot from CD, so you will press any key, a blue screen will appear while its loading, when it get to the first set of options you will press enter to continue. when it get to the second set of options it will ask you to install the operating system or repair it, choose repair and follow the steps from there, once you choose repair, the computer will go through different stages. The next step is to enter the keys for the operating system the computer will continue until it finish the repairs and this should solve the problem of missing files. But you should backup your files before doing this even though no files should be lost but its better to backup just in case something goes wrong. Backing up the file is always an important part of having a computer, you should also create a recovery CD and this can be done during the process of backing up your computer files. The back up files should be store on one or more DVDs or other storage device and this along with the recovery CD should be store in a safe and dry place. The purpose of the recovery CD is to repair damage or missing files on the computer and each computer require its own back up and recovery disk to repair the problem.

Ve an Asus K510J With Pre Installed Vista And I need to Clean Install Windows 7 On it Which is Not Proceeding and Says Files Missing

Sounds like you need to stick with Vista. Believe me, Windows 7 is just a tab bit better, but you'll have problems with it.

How to install company of hero to my pc

To install this game follow these steps.
1. Put the CD/DVD in your computer (If you have a DVD version of the game and no DVD drive it won't work.) 2. The disk should be read and you can click on the autoplay/install option. If this doesn't happen go to my computer and double click the cd drive with the game icon on it. 3. Click install and follow the on screen instructions. You will need a CD key which is provided in the game case and it is usually located on the back of the instruction manual.
Hope this helps. Robert

I have fsx deluxe and it hangs on install

Check your DVD discs have no scratches or damage. If this is not the case, get a replacement set from where you purchased it.

Game will not install at all

You can try to not double click on your dvd drive, because when you double click, your computer tries to run "autorun", you should browse your files from explorer and try to do one click to your dvd or cd drive, than run your setup exe, if its still freezing, try that cd or dvd at another computer, if it acts same,you can be sure your game dvd is broken. Go to your seller.
