Generally, installation issues of a program require extensive details about the program and the computer to successfully troubleshoot the problem.

  1. What Programs are you trying to install? What version? Is it a New Game just released? What are the minimum hardware requirements for the game (Almost universally written somewhere on the game packaging.)
  2. What computer make and model do you have?
  3. What operating system (Normally version of Windows) do you have?
  4. What Video Card, What sound card?
  5. Whate version of Direct X (IN WIndows, Start, run, DXDIAG)
These are just a few of the details needed to assist you in resolving your problem.

    Guys after i finished installing the game, it refuses to launch and a message is displayed that i insert the disc but after doing so nothing happens,please help??? coz i eagerly want to play it.

    There might be no autostart. Click on the start menu, then my computer and double click on your disc drive. from there there should be an icon probably by the same name as the game that should allow you to start if nothing pops up after clicking on the drive.

    I have a game that wont install on my computer at all...nothing pops up like it should.

    Sometimes the drives don't automatically recognize cd's (assuming your using CD). Usually remembers last command which can vary from setup.exe, autorun etc. so if a new CD is inserted with diff. program launch, it can go dumb. You can go to "My computer" and double click on your CD drive (with the game cd inserted) and look for setup.exe or install.exe or autorun. Double-click on one of those files to launch the installer.

    My Kodak Picture CD will not auto load

    If your computer is operating with WINDOWS 95, WINDOWS 98, or WINDOWS NT 4.0 Systems, this CD contains software that automatically launches when you insert the CD. Getting Started:
    Insert your Picture CD disc and wait for the software to load (it could take as long as 5 minutes, depending on your machine configuration, CD drive speed, and the number of images on the Picture CD).
    Note: This loading process installs some Picture CD program files onto your hard drive. The KODAK Picture CD installer walks you through the steps. The final step may be to restart your computer. If so, be sure to restart to complete the installation.
    After your computer has rebooted:
    1. Eject the Picture CD and re-insert it into the CD drive.
      The program should launch automatically.
    2. Click the magazine cover to turn to the Contents Page.
    3. Follow the links to read and do more with your digital photos.
    If nothing happens after waiting for the Auto Play, you may need to manually start the Auto Play program. (Auto Play is a program that starts up the CD installation process the first time you use the CD.)
    To manually start Auto Play:
    1. Right-click the My Computer icon.
    2. Select Properties from the pop-up menu.
    3. Click the Device Manager tab.
    4. Click the CD-ROM drive icon; click the "+" to view the CD-ROM drive information.
    5. Double-click the CD-ROM driver icon.
    6. Select Properties from the pop-up menu.
    7. Click Settings.
    8. Check Auto insert notification and click OK.
    Note: This enables all CDs to automatically run any Auto Play software.
