Installation error

Hey guys & gals.

My friend gave me a loan of his Grim Fandango CD, and being a big fan of Monkey Island I cant wait to play it.

But my enthusiasm's been slammed into a brick wall.

I put in Disc A, ran the installer but it stops at 47% and gives me this message:



I'm not sure what to do, i've read these forums and searched Google but can't find a solution. I can't even get the game installed. After I click OK on that image, the Installer just closes and thats it. My friend is able to install it without problems so I don't know what's wrong.

I run Windows XP.

If anyone can help me out i'd be so greatful!!!

Thanks everyone

The fact that your friend can install it properly makes it a bit weird, but..

whenever I had a cd that had too many scratches on it, which gave problems with installing, I used CloneCD to make an image of it, and then installing it. CloneCD was able to make a proper image out of an inproper CD.

But the last time I did that was a year or 2 ago. It's always worth a try though.


We may have years, we may have hours, but sooner or later, we push up flowers.

Geez, you're quick!

Can't think of anything else.. it looks like a typical error you get from scratches on the cd. But then again.. it works on your friends pc.. maybe you've got an old(er) cd-rom drive?

Not that fast this time :P

Well my brother's into computers and he buys all kinds of hardware updates, so even though the PC itself is probably about 7 years old, the hardware's pretty up to date. Saying that, I think it should still work if GF is an older game.

Well I tried that program, and I even burned the image file to a fresh CD, but I get the same error Wish it would just work!
