Kotor2 wont install on Vista

Recommended Posts

Check the FAQ section of the forum. But I don't think this is a Vista problem exclusivly....I seem to recall getting that error message under Win 98 before now on other games. If you still have the Vista disk you could try reinstalling Vista if all else fails-it shouldn't delete anything other than your current window settings, as the install program checks to see what programs you already have installed on your computer. Of course if you try this and it fails don't blaime me, I will take no responsibilty if it decides to format your harddrive.


Anyone else with technical knowledge know how to solve this in a simpler way?
