After trying the auto run on the burning crusade today i got a new error message.

'Sorry, the installer was unable to start up. You may be out of hard drive space.'

I have no idea why this is appearing, since i have over 20GB free hard drive space on both C:\ and D:\ drive.
Any idea?

Ok,
I got a Windows XP Pro installation disk but whenever i try to install/repair it it just gives me the error message 'setup could not find any hard drives installed on your computer windows'. Any ideas? or should i try on another forum topic.

Does this problem occur only when you try to install something from a CD? Try downloading a demo, from like FilePlanet.com, and see if you are able to install that.

I've tried copying the CD's to hard drive and installing to there...Same error. Did this to make sure that the CD's didn't contain corrupt data.

Try the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility. Google for it and you will find it.

Nope didn't work.
Now game installations just say 'Setup failed to start up, you may be out of hard disk space.'
Its strange that this error message only comes up for games and not any programs.
