Have you tried emptying your temp folders?
Have you closed all backgrounds tasks?
Have you tried renaming the installshield folder?
What error did you get when trying to install it from the CD?

Double-click on the My Computer icon.
Double-Click on the C:
Double-Click on Program Files then on Common Files.
Right-Click on the InstallShield folder.
Select Rename.
Rename it to InstallShieldOld.
Start the installation again to reinstall the InstallShield components with the newest version.

Have you tried installing the game with a different CD/DVD drive?
What disk error does it display? CRC error?

Sorry but I can't remember what the error was since it just happend the first time. By the way this just happening on this computer becasue it worked fine on my laptop and the games is amazing.

Anyways I decide to copy the installed game directory to my computer from my laptop and it works, but I still am going to fix my InstallShield to get it working because the game might crash any moment because it's not installed properly.

Yes I have tried a different cd rom and the results were the same. Also I did as you said and renamed the folder to InstallShieldOld and ran the setup and it gave the same error again.

Remember How I said that i copied the game directory and it worked? Well now it runs the compatibility program and everything is checked off except, the button that says Launch Game! is grey and unavailable.

I am so confused.

It sounds like your DVD/CD drive is having problems reading the disk.
Have you tried changing the transfer mode of the drive to PIO only to see if that helps?
