Installation error "Sounds.dta"

Unread post by Fronkey » Thu Sep 22, 2011 11:03 am

So after several years, I found H&D2 again. Obviously, I wanted to start playing asap seeing this was/is the best war game I've ever played on my computer. I'm using Windows 7, and the installation goes perfect until 53%. It says:

Error blabla reading from file C:\Program blabla ... Sounds.dta. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.

I've probably searched the entire internet but I just don't get it. I've seen people saying that it should work perfectly on Windows 7 so yeah.. I'm getting kinda desperate. Especially since my knowledge about computers is pathetic, I'm not a diehard gamer, I'd just love to start playing this game again :cry: The multiplayer was awesome.

If anyone could help me, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
A computer-noob

(btw, English is my third language so I might have trouble understanding difficult computer language, just saying ;) )


EDIT: After cancelling the installation, a message pops up saying there was a fatal error. It tells me to consult Windows Installer Help or MSDN for more information. But I have no idea what it means and would prefer not to screw up my computer by doing stupid stuff which I don't understand..

Welcome to the forums thup01

Are the CDs scratch free and completely clean?
Have you had any issues installing any other games?

Thanks, I'm liking this place ;)

Yeah, the discs are in good shape. I haven't had trouble with any other game before, I've already installed some other oldies like Simcity 4 Deluxe, Zoo Tycoon, Railroad Tycoon, RCT3, Medieval 2: Total War and Age of Empires 3. Which is why I was surprised that this one doesn't work.

Perhaps you can make an ISO backup of your disc 2 using Daemon Tools Lite: http://www.daemon-tools.cc/eng/products/dtLite
Then try and install using that?

Sorry for my late reply, school started again so yeah :sad: Anyhow, I downloaded Daemon, but I have no idea how to make an ISO backup, any chance you could guide me through it?
