I bought Farcry today and when I tried to install it I don't get the Autorun option, just the folder with all the files which I can do nothing with.

I knows its somthing with the drive as I have other games that aren't working and my brother had it working on his computer.

Hey there Darryl, even if an autorun doesnt come up, you still should be able to install the game.

> Open My Computer
> Right Click On the source drive (Eg. D:\ for Cd-Rom)
> There should be an option for "AutoPlay"

This will open a autorun menu if there is one. If not open your source drive and find a "Setup.exe" or "Install.exe" file. Also if you find none of these on the disk, try looking for "Autorun.ini", open it and paste the contents here.

Cool :whistling:

When I try to run setup.exe I get "D:\ is not a valid win32 application."

I tried to run FarCry Windows Installer package, but I got another message "This installation could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to vertify that this is a valid Windows Installer package."

Heres what I found in the Autorun.ini.

No, its the original. I got it in WalMart last night.

Could it be somthing with the CD-Rom? Because my brother was able to install it easy, and Ive had the same problem when I tried to reinstall CoD.

This is possible that the Cd-Rom is damaged, but let us leave that as last resort. What programs have you loaded that may be conflicting with the game or Cd-Rom???

Also try updating your Cd-Rom's Firmware.

Im not really sure of anything that could be conflicting with the drive. my brother said Daemon Tools could do it, but I don't have that installed.

I will try updating the firmware though.
