I tried to install KOTOR I on my new laptop but every time I try to install it, it gets to 10% and then I get this error message:
Component: Cabs US
File Group: (blank)
Error: Catastrophic failure
I have 6GB RAM, ATI Mobility Radeon 4650 graphics, Intel Core 2 Duo CPU and Windows 7 64-bit. The thing works beautifully and runs games just fine with great graphics, but I can't even get KOTOR installed.
I tried running it in compatability mode, but that has not worked at all. Sometimes a different mode will give me a different error message, but it always crashes at 10%. I've looked up the error elsewhere on other forums and such, but no advice has helped me, maybe because I'm on such a new machine. I really have no idea.
My old desktop still runs the game just fine, and it's a much slower piece of crap with Windows XP. I remember I straight struggled to get it running on that, too, but I eventually figured it out and it runs perfect now. I just don't really remember what I did or if that would help me this time around. It installed fine last time. It's not a faulty disc, so I don't want a cocksure, "It's probably just scratched." reply.
If anyone had a similar problem and figured it out or has any ideas as to what could be causing the error - or knows what it even means - please
let me know!
Thank you kindly.
