  • Battlefield 2 installation crash.

    Hi! I have installed and played the game before, but uninstalled it for the need of harddrive space. Now when i tried installind it again, it did the install preparation thingy, filled the bar and then the cyan backrounded setup pops up for a moment and then its gone before it could do anything. No error or message or anything comes, just disappears and nothing happens. Tried once with task manager open and it just closed the process. I have installed new drivers and everything, done several restarts and tried again but with no luck. Every time still the same. I have closed all the applications that are in the sidebar and the toolbar and stuff so no unnecessary things are open during the time of installation. I have windows xp SP3. The differences from the BF2 installing before was that i had probably a different service pack and definately a different graphics card (i have nvidia geforce 8600 gt atm, i had 7600 gts before). How in the hell am i friggin supposed to install it?

    THISPROBLEM HAS NOW BEEN SOLVED. I googled it and it took a while to find the right place, ill copy the solution here if som1 esle might need it, ADMIN: If you could make a sticky out of it then it would be a helping hand for many other gamers there or just copy the things from here and make a new post about BF2 install crashing.

    So the problem was that the uninstallation was incomplete due to the failure of EA. The registry files ARE NOT DELETED after you uninstall the game. You need them deleted if you want to reinstall the game.
    All credits go to Lobo on filefront forums.

    Try this:

    You can manually uninstall the game by removing the files and registry keys associated with it. Be sure to follow these steps exactly as they appear to prevent accidental file/program deletion on your system.
