i've been playing this game for very long with the same computer. For some reasons i lost it when i had to do a windows xp reformatting. I naver had any problems installing it before and since i reformatted the computer and try to install it the install stops after a few minutes at oil fields with the same message every time. I tried to do a copy of the game files in other folder but it just wont work cause some files format dont seem to be able to transfer because of some company rights. I have then tried to install a downloaded file and it stopped at the same place so i guess it's not a disk problem. Ive been updating my drivers including graphic card and the problem still remains. I've been searching over namy forums but didn't get an answer yet even on ea games. If someone could help me out with t hat one it would greatly appreciate.
