ISO AND INSTALLING PROGRAMS




ISO AND INSTALLING PROGRAMS

Lets start the story… This weekend I decided to install Terran X3… Love that game… So I decided to install it on a pc where I recently installed a new operating system on. Makes no difference except to say it was a windows os. Now I started the install process and it stopped half way through a dat file

terran x3 an error occurred when trying to copy a file the parameters are incorrect…

I then tried to reboot and reinstall… no luck…
In fact… I thought it may have been the cdfs file system causing issues… no luck…
I then thought… quite possibly its a driver issue… or even registry…
But before I mess with the registry… I decided to do a little experiment…

My idea… maybe its the driver or the dvd drive

so lets downdload cdburnerxp
so lets turn the dvd to an iso…
mount it with magic disc…
and try installing it from the mount…
It worked…

I couldn’t run the game because the disc had a disk check on it…
so I unmounted the iso…
rebooted pc…
left disc in pc…
and tried running from desktop and it ran perfectly…

so in conclusion…
if unable to install a disc then maybe try turning it into an iso and installing the iso… unmount… leave disc in… and reboot… that way if there are any disc checks it can find the right image to check against…
