    so i have ME1 for the com, but evry time i try to install it the installer tells me: the installation of mass effect has been cancelled, please run setup. So i ran it trough setup and ended up with the same prob, this even got me to buy a second copy of the game trying to fix it, but when that 2nd copy came in, I ran it on my laptop to install it, but yet again i get that same senctence,:\

    anyone knows how to fix this? pls reply.

    After you install it the first time, try patching the game before attempting to run it. It solved my problems.

    I hope you get it installed, ME1 was the only really good ME in my humble opinion. 2 was so pathetic I didn't even bother getting 3. If you love shooters 2 & 3 will be great for you though, but they removed a lot from 1 and made those into shooters/rpg-lite if any.
