The reason is, it only happens when you try to install Halo 2 on Windows XP.

The Game gets installed perfectly on Windows Vista

Because, I have installed and played the game on Windows Vista. But, when I de-graded my OS to Windows XP and tried to install the game. It gave me the same error message.

So, if your OS is Win XP then try install on Win Vista if you have it or on your friends PC.

But if you are already on Win Vista then please do let me know.

Also could please let me know whether your trying to Auto install the game or you are manually trying to install the game by clicking Step.exe?

I would be glad to find some help for you in this regard.

Download deamon tools lite.
That will allow you to make virtual drives. Put the files you downloaded into that drive. The game will see it as a disk in a cd drive and your should be able to install as normal.

You need to run it under windows 98 compatibility mode:

To do this locate the file "privateer.exe". By default, this file is located in Program Files/Global Star/Privateers Bounty - Age of Sail 2.

- Right click on the privateer.exe and select Properties.
- Click the Compatibility tab.
- Check the Compatibility Mode box by clicking in it.
- Use the drop down menu to select Windows 98/ME.
- Click Apply, and then click OK to close the window.

Hope this helps.
