  1. If you expecting a fix in the form of a patch or something, forget about it, the game is no longer supported. Besides, you are trying to run it on Vista. Just like with most older software and Vista, you are on your own with making KotOR2 work, since Vista didn't even exist when the game was developed or released.


    As for how to get around the problem, other than running in admin mode (that's not logging in as an admin and running it, that's right-clicking on the executable and choosing "run as admin", even if your user is already an admin), you can try some other things, like turning off Vista's UAC (User Account Control) or running the game on a single processor core (assuming you have a multi-core processor).

  2. This happens with my second disk all the time. All I had to do to get around it was copy the contents of the disk to a directory on my hard drive and when the install asks for the disk, I point it at that directory. I don't know if it really makes a difference, but I did name the directory the same as the label on the disk.


    BTW - CRC errors don't always mean a bad disk, sometimes they can be an indication of a bad CD/DVD drive or its connecting cable. If you have had any disk read errors with any other disks, then that is a very likely suspect for the cause of this particular error. Unfortunately, the only way to fix a bad drive or cable is by replacing it.

  3. Did you right-click on the correct executable/shortcut? If you right-clicked on the menu or desktop shortcut, it shouldn't have the launch analysis option, since the shortcut points to launcher.exe and not swkotor2.exe. You need to right-click directly on the swkotor2.exe file and the launch analysis option should be the third (or fourth) option on the menu.

  4. The problem is likely the Intel 915's lack of hardware T&L capability (it does do software T&L). Supposedly the game requires that ability (unlike KotOR 1), but the latest patch also supposedly added support for the Intel 915, which seems to conflict with that requirement. Frankly, I have never known of anyone with anything less than an Intel 945/965 getting the game to run, and those only run at the barest minimum settings. Like refuse suggested, you might be able to use 3D Analyze to trick the game into thinking you have a card with hardware T&L ability, which is probably your only option since a hardware upgrade on that laptop is unlikely.

  5. Its is the Miles Sound System support library that comes with KotOR 2 and is found in the game's install directory. Unfortunately the version that came with KotOR 2 is not compatible with Vista, but the older version that came with KotOR 1 (and any number of other games) does work with Vista. In the Kotor2 Technical FAQ, Statistics & Mod Info, Read first... common issues... including Windows Vista post Deraldin linked to, there is a section about Vista issues that includes a download link for a working version of the Mss32.dll file.

  6. It sounds like you have Windows configured to use your webcam as the default sound device, instead of your sound card. To check/change that, open the Control Panel, double click on the "Sounds and Audio Devices" applet and go to the Audio tab. From the drop-down list under Sound playback, select your actual sound card, instead of the webcam.


    BTW - Apologies for my English, I unfortunately don't speak any French.

  7. I just had a similar situation with my second disk during a reinstall yesterday. What I did to get around it was copy the entire contents of the second disk to a directory on one of my hard drives, then when the install prompted me for it, I just browsed for the directory and the install proceeded normally. I'm not sure if this is necessary, but I did name the directory identically to the disk volume name (KOTR2_2).
