  • Can't install BF2

    OK guys, I just bought a Gateway NV52 laptop and am having trouble installing BF2. When I put the disk in it first pops up with a WARNING saying BF has only been tested on windows 32-bit systems NOT vista. I continue with install anyways and gets through installing all 3 disk but then after 3rd disk the Install Wizard shows up in bottom open applications but never appears on the screen. I tried anyways to install 1.41 patch and when the install wizard for patch starts it says can't find proper BF2 folder. Any help would be appreciated!

    here are my DXDiag specs:

    Re: Can't install BF2

    You may want to delete the previous install and then use "my computer" to launch BF2 by right clicking the setup icon and "run as administrator". It has been awhile since I used Vista, but I remember running into a few complications with installation and then launching after install. You will definantly need to use the right click and "run as admin" to play and there is also an area of the "properties", after the right click on the icon, to "always run as admin". Good luck.

    Edit - Btw, you will need to patch to 1.41 then to 1.5.
