My problem is, as I insert the first TBC installation CD and the installer is supposed to start up, I get the following error message very shortly afterwards:
"Sorry, the installer was unable to start up. You may be out of hard drive space"
Needless to say, I have plenty disc space on both my drives.
I tried the original WoW CDs as well, with the same result. I then inserted Half Life 2 and Unreal Tournament 2003 and thought they did not get the same error message, they also failed to start up, which leads me to believe something about my computer is severely off. I have tried everything suggested from Blizzards own people, but most people have different problems than me, and those that have the same are not answered.
I noticed there was a post like mine here already, having the same problem, but in rummaging through the forums I think I saw something about not adding own problems to existing topics but rather create own, so I did.
