Installation issues

Post  Argos on Thu May 15, 2008 4:39 pm

Hello, first post and all Smile

I have a problem with PSO v2 for PC and I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on a possible solution. I've recently downloaded Aleron Ives' PSO v2 and tried to install it on my computer but I always get an error when trying to do so. More accurately, at the beginning of the installation, right after selecting a language for the remainder of the process and clicking on 'OK', it starts to install but then an InstallShield error message pops up and says "1628: Failed to complete installation".

Any ideas on what is causing this? For reference:

1. This really are Ives' files, downloaded from the site and not some other site.
2. I made sure that I tried out all possible compatibility modes during setup attempts.
3. I'm using Windows Vista Home edition with all updates installed, which shouldn't be a problem since a friend of mine has his copy installed on the same OS.


Thanks in advance Smile

How are you installing it? By clicking on a file? Running it from ISO burned CD? Or are you using the virtual clone drive? If you're following the read me word for word, I would think you wouldn't have any problems. I know I didn't. (then again, I'm not running Vista)

Hello Smile

I try and execute the Setup.exe directly on the main folder, which I access through a virtual drive program. I've tried both PowerIso and Alcohol 120%. I've followed the readme closely - or as much of the readme as applicable, since I can't get past the installation, of course.

Cheers Smile

Oh no not this problem... This is caused by some problem with InstallShield itself. Hmm... if you can, try to update InstallShield. As I recall, it's very difficult to find the update for it. (I can't even remember if there is one, it's been a long time since someone had this error.) The only surefire method I know of to fix the problem is unfortunately to reformat because your InstallShield is somehow messed up. My only experience with this problem is on XP, though. Vista might be different.

Thanks for the replies, everyone. Since Vista was giving me some issues, I took the time to format my hard drive and reinstall XP. I tried reinstalling PSO as well and it worked! Now I'm only waiting for the serial confirmation Smile

Thanks, everyone Smile

Post  Flash T.H. on Wed May 28, 2008 3:25 pm

Yo. I'm kinda new here, I have PSO PC, I have serials, but my problem is the pre-installation. When ever I run setup.exe, I get this error:

H/setup.exe is not suitable for MS-DOS. Click close to close the program.
affraid
confused I use DAEMON Tools, a clone drive, and XP. Please HELP!!! Evil or Very Mad (so I can play PSO) (maybe not online yet, but maybe when I'm older)

Have you tried using Virtual CloneDrive? I have no experience with Daemon Tools.

Yes, and my only guess is that it says that because Daemon Tools sucks. Razz

If it does that with other virtual drives try burning the discs. If it still says that, my only recommendation is a reformat or try to update InstallShield.

Uh.. no, I think you are wrong!!! Shocked Reason is that that error also comes up when I try to install crappy games for my sister. Embarassed The installer works on other comps, but not that one.

Edit: I have a sudden idea. Do you think it may work if I re-insall XP?

It does sound like your PC is borked if PSO isn't the only game that does this. Try reformatting.

Post  Flash T.H. on Thu Jun 05, 2008 9:30 am

Ok, I have reinstalled XP and installed pso on the comp I was having problems with. Now, when I run setup on this comp, it automatically stops! Evil or Very Mad WHY DOES THESE @$%@#@% INSTALLATION PROBLEMS HAPPEN TO ME? Evil or Very Mad

IT MIGHT BE BETTER IF THE SETUP DIDN'T INVOLVE A COMMAND LINE!

My point is that if a command prompt is popping up, then something is still wrong with your Windows installation. >_>;

Well...

Post  Flash T.H. on Fri Jun 06, 2008 1:34 pm

Then should I install MS-DOS, and see what that does? Smile

If that doesn't work, then give me an option that doesn't involve taking this comp all the way over to best buy to have it fixed.

Post  Flash T.H. on Sat Jun 07, 2008 4:49 pm

OK, so maybe I lied about my sista's comp having pso on it, but it still can't install. Embarassed I will reinstall XP, and MS Office, and MS_DOS and see what happens, but I will uninstall Daemon Tools Smile and use Alcohol 120% Very Happy and see what that does. Very Happy

... Neutral

I will also do the uninstalling and installing Alcohol 120% on this comp. I'll reply if it works! Very Happy

It sounds like your download is corrupt... you did get PSO_PC_Ives_ISOs_v2.zip right?

Now i did.

Post  Flash T.H. on Tue Jun 10, 2008 2:43 pm

I just redownloaded the pso isos and heres a tip: change your readme to use WinRAR rather than WiZ. It's just faster. Very Happy

Don't worry: checked the whole thing! Now i'm putting it on this comp!
