I just received my new Dell computer installed with Vista.


The only programs I've installed are AVG and Adaware SE.


Ok, here's my problem (this is the Deluxe Edition BTW):

I put in the first disk (installation disk.) Vista says "do you want to run this program?" and chose yes. Battlefield begins to install. Then, after only installing for 45 seconds, I get an error saying: "Failed to install Battlefield 2, please try again." I look on the install process, and apparently it stopped on \objects_server.zip.


So then I try again. But this time after putting in the disk, I click cancel when Vista comes up asking "Do you want to install this program?" Instead, I go to my computer and select the program from there. I enter the code for both battlefield 2 and special forces (I can skip special forces) and select continue. Instead of opting for the complete install, I went for the custom install hoping this would solve the problem. I still selected all the available programs. I don't know, I thought perhaps this would help.

The game installed...and guess what? I get the same exact error.


I've been googling vista - battlefield 2 help pages but none seem to help.


Suggestions and comments will be GREATLY appreciated.

Moved to the proper forum.

And for the love, please don't recommend me to reinstall XP. I don't have a spare copy, and lack the cash to buy another one.


thanks!
