Title: Vista Install Problem
Post by: kuma on September 03, 2008, 05:48:12 am
I just got an Acer 6920G notebook and am trying to install SC2.  The intall program stopped about half way through and an error message allowed me to try again.  It appeared to be continuing the install but shortly it stopped again and I had to ctrl/alt/del to clear the screen.  Is there a problem installing on a Vista machine?  I had no problem installing it on my old Toshiba running XP.

I've got a vista machine and it installed all right, so it's not an OS thing.

Me again.   I tried again and it installed.  I played SC about 20 years ago and loved it.  When my husband found the ur-quan free game he didn't know it was the old SC game when he downloaded it for me.  Wow was I surprised  when I realized it was the old game and I spent hours searching through my desk drawers and sundry papers for the detailed notes (log) I made eons ago.  I thought I still had the old software too but I guess I threw everything out because the software wouldn't run on any machine we have. 

Great work people to bring back the good old games that most of the new ones can't compare to.  Thanks.  :)
