Ooook, I'm getting ready to throw in the towel on this and go find another game for a while, but I really want to play Thief. I've tried every trick in the book I can find, manual install included. But when I run setup.exe under compatability mode, for Win98/ME, or for that matter any other method, even with that command line, all I get is this:

:mad2:

That's 2 hours after I ran it, thought I'd just wait it out, maybe it would change it's mind, lol.

I'm starting to draw shorter and shorter straws, any help is appreciated.

System Specs:
OS: Windows Vista Ultimate x64
CPU: AMD Athlon X2 6400+ BE (OCed to 3408Mhz)
RAM: 2x2GB Gskill PC8000
GPU: eVGA 8800GT Super Clocked
MoBo: Gigabyte GA-MA770-DS3 (AMD 770 chipset)
Sound: Creative X-Fi Xtreme Music


Once again, I really want to play this game again, any and all input is appreciated. :)


[edit]And then suddenly....it worked!!!!! now lets see if I can get the game to run! :P
