I recently got the Vista 32x OS and after updating everything to the max i
tried to install my Fable game. Unfortunately i seem to be getting an error
that i have absolutely no idea who to fix:

Error 1607: unable to install InstallShield Scripting Runtime

Any ideas? i know there was a March 07 update for Vista that had some compatibility
fixes, but it was not for my 32x .

finally! after much experimenting i finally figured it out! ^^

first to load the game into the computer you have to browse though the CD itself for the Setup.exe or Fable.exe file and rigthclick run as administrator.

So that will load it but in order to play the game without getting that " Protection Stub has stopped working" error, you have to go into the DEP settings and there should be a little button where you can add Fable.exe as one of the programs that does'nt have to be blocked. You could also just turn off the DEP but i wouldnt recomend that.

Hope that helps! :)

Wow that's great, LostNewbie! Thanks for posting the answer so others can find it if they need it. :)

I'm about to upgrade to Vista myself, if I have any problems, I'll give it a shot :)

I found that anytime you run a game or installation it is always best to run as admin is Vista.
