    hi,
    im having problems installing rct 2, just got the game and when i try to install it comes up with the menu options and then when i clcik on install it doesnt do anything for a few minutes and then comes up sayin it doesnt work, something to do with the setup file.

    i have read on a site that there is problem with using a dvd drive for setup but no explanation on how to solve it

    any help would be appreciative

    Not too sure on the age of the game but try using Windows 98 Compatibility Mode.

    Right click on the setup.exe file and click properties. Under Compatibility tab, check the box and make sure that Windows 98/ME is listed in the drop box. Apply and OK that then double click on the file.
