Hi there

I cannot get CSI Miami to install, even though other games in the series install with no trouble.

I'm running XP, all drivers etc are up to date and have plenty memory and disk space.

When I put disk one in the drive, it auto-runs and I get the option to install the game, but when I click on Install, nothing happens. The title screen just dissapears again and I'm left back at the desktop with my white cursor. I don't get any error messages and the puter does not crash.

Any ideas what's happening? How can I get the game to install?

Thanks



Here's some puter info for you.

No-one seems to be able to help me on this one. The game runs on our other puter (XP) and installs fine. I cannot play it on that machine as it does not meet the minium specs and is very slow. Please shed some light. Thanks

Hi bonniescot,

Did you try to install the game when you are logged with the Administrator account ?
I noticed a few games won't install even if the user has administrator rights.

No I tried to install the game under a normal account, which is not *administrator* and not password protected. I have even tried to install under *guest* account to no avail. I'm really at a loss :(

Just to let you know that I got the game installed finally. I discovered that I did not have InstallShield installed :)
