I just made another series of failed attempts to install SWAT 4 on my computer. It's a 6 yr old P4.
Dell Computer Corporation
Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.53GHz
NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Ultra
Plug and Play Monitor
Creative SB Live! Series
Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 3 (2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.090206-1234)
The autorun start brings up the options, including INSTALL but does not recognize the CD in the drive...ok, but the options came off THAT DISK. Hello, UBISOFT? I couldn't click that INSTALL button if the DISK 1 was not already in the drive and accessible.
Ok, so I opened the SWAT 4 Disk 1 folder and clicked the install.exe and the install starts and runs until it requests Disk 2. Then it refuses to recognize Disk 2 as being in the drive. But Disk 2 can't be started from an .exe file like Disk 1 so that ends the install. The computer sees both Disk 1 and Disk 2. The SWAT program does not until I manually activate the Install.exe on disk 1.
Next step was to make all the files in the folders on both Disk 1 & 2 compatible with Win98. Same result.
Do any of you computer gurus know if i can manually transfer the Disk 2 files into the SWAT 4 game folder on my HD? I have not seen the installed game on my HD so I do not know what files go where.
