Just go to your Windows folder.
You'll find the folder REPAIR.
In there you'll find the file called autoexec.nt.
Copy it.
Now go into the folder of Windows called System32 and paste inthere. Make the file read-only and hidden.
Now everything should work fine.
At least it worked for me.


Good, better, best
Never rest
Until good be better
And better best

This fix you mention, with the replacement for the autoexec.nt file, does it affect game play or is it just to get the installer working?

Please elaborate. Thank you.
