Try to install the game 'Lights Out' (Adventure Company) on HP laptop under Vista with SP2.

HP Pavilion dv9310us Notebook PC/1.0 GB Ram/Windows Vista Home Premium with SP2 installed / processor is AMD Turion 64 x 2 Mobile Technology TL-52 / no changes to the factory configuration

Lights Out requires:
OS: Windows 98/ME/2000/XP
CPU: Pentium III 450 MHz or better
RAM: 128 MB RAM (256 recommended)
CD-ROM: 24 x CD-ROM Drive (or DVD of PC drive)
Video: SVGA card graphics or better
Sound: DirectX 9 Compatible Sound card

Once I insert the disc in the drive, it starts to "work".  I disabled autorun because he was suspended when I inserted a disc.  So I open the folder on your computer and select the game and right click on "explore".  I then on the installation icon.  1.5 hours later, he finally asked me if I wanted to install the program (I've also implemented so need my permission before installing anything).  It's now 45 minutes (and still waiting) since he asked my permission to install the program, but if I didn't I had a program tried to install, I don't know.  In other words without box "Progress" or installation.

Maybe I'm just too wait for Vista because this game was not "written" specifically for it?  Hell, more than an hour just to get to the point where he asks me if I want to install the program?  It seems to me that something is wrong somewhere.  Unfortunately I'm not well informed enough to understand.

I tried defrag and 'cleansing' of the disk (C: drive, not the CD). I have even 50 GB free on a 100 GB drive, and there should be a lot of RAM.  Also, when I run the Task Manager, it shows the reader DVD RW as 'running', not 'does not.

I * think * something is wrong somewhere in Vista, since the problem began with autorun hung when I inserted an installation disc.

I would really appreciate any advice that anyone can have.  It's just not good.

I was "Baby sitting" installation.  No dialog boxes have gone unnoticed.  I had the same problem with another game by the same company last night.  This game has been 'Dark Fall'.  As long that I left him alone, he finally got the game installed, but it took a lifetime to do.  I don't know if the problem is specific to this company or not.  I installed the last week several games download section of Amazon and Big Fish game, which none have given me no problem.  But they were all downloads, then these 2 games is basic disk.  Once Dark Fall WAS installed it worked fine.

Thank you.  :)

According to the Windows Vista Compatibility Center this game is not compatible with Vista.  You can try to right click on the Setup file and run in XP compatibility.  If this does not help, then you should contact the game manufacturer for any updates\patches that would make it works with Vista.    Mike - Engineer Support Microsoft Answers

    Also check in control panel--> system--> for you Device Manager make sure that there is no yellow/red icon next to the CD player and it's function correctly.

    Hello

    The reason why you get this error is due to problems with the integrity of the install file. If you downloaded the installation file you want to remove the existing installation file and re-upload. This will often fix this problem by getting you a fresh and non-corrupt installation file.

    When you download, make sure that you have disabled all virus running scanner. This can cause a problem with the installation. So go ahead and reinstall and it should install correctly.

    Hi Merlot_1984

    Welcome to Microsoft Vista answers Forum!

    I suggest that you try to run the game as administrator and verify.

    Right-click on the game, and then click Run as administrator.

    If the problem persists, I suggest that you perform the clean boot, you can start Windows Vista by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    The following link has steps showing how to perform the clean boot: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

    (1) perform the clean boot (check the link to perform the clean boot)

    (2) enable half the services

    (3) determine whether the problem returns

    (4) enable half of the startup items

    (5) determine if the problem returns

    (6) repeat the steps above until you find out which program or service is causing the issue

    After you determine the startup item or the service that is causing the problem, contact the manufacturer of the program to determine if the problem can be solved. Or, run the System Configuration utility, and then click to clear the check box of the element of the problem.

    Reset the computer to start as usual

    When you are finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

    1. click on start, type msconfig.exe in the start search box and press ENTER.

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click on continue.

    2. on the general tab, click the Normal startup option, and then click OK.

    3. When you are prompted to restart the computer, click on restart.

    Let me know if it worked.
