Error (-5006: 0x8000ffff) trying to install Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 Platinum on Vista.

I know that RCT3 Platinum is an Atari game that no poster not taken in charge by Vista but I spoke with many people who are able to properly install and play. I tried their support and received no response as well as to aid their forums that I am hoping to find some help here. As soon as I click on the setup.exe to install from cd I get a screen InstallShield Wizard brief then immediately after an error stating "an error (-5006: 0x8000ffff) occurred during the execution of installation. Once the error screen is closed all the other screens nearby installation and that's it. I tried to install as administrator and with XP, 2000, 98, 95 & compatabilities but without success. I have an Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4 GHz processor with Nvidia GeForce 9500GT video on Vista home premium SP2. Any suggestions with this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Quaker13,

Thank you for using Microsoft Windows forum

We have no information about compatibility. So, we will not be able to help a lot. When a game is not compatible or does not know compatibility then the program may or may not work on the operating system.

See the link below that supports the theory

Contact the manufacturer game for better support

Kind regards
