    Exclamation Thief 2 wont run... help

    Ok heres the deal, i put in the Thief 2 disk, click on the instal button, and the instalshield thing comes up in the corner.... it builds to 100% then the program just closes..... and thats it, nothing happens. I have tried E:\setup and E:\setup.exe -lgntforce and the same thing happens........ any suggestions?
    Oh Yeah i am running on XP

    Start the install. Go away. Sometimes (for reasons unknown) it takes up to an hour to install.

    So just wait for a LOOOOONNNNGGG time. Don't expect an instant response.

    This only occurs in XP and only some of the time.

    So, like a thief in the shadow. Be PATIENT.

    Didn't know that, tBm.

    If setup.exe is still in the task list(control+shift+escape then processes tab) then it may, as tBm has said, resume later.

    If not then you can try running setup.exe in different compatability modes.
