I cannot even get to the setup screen. Autoplay doesnt work at all, and exploring disc1 properties and selecting install wont work either.

I have P3 800, asus p3v4x mobo, 256 ram, Geforce Prophet DDR, Creative 52x, 20Gig WD hardrive with 7g open.

Also, it installed fine on my "slow comp" p3500, Voodoo 3000, 128 ram, Asus p2b mobo.

I would love any help as it seems like a winner. Otherwise back it goes!

Check your Windows temp folder. Normally under c:\Windows\temp and clean up all the unused temp files. This program will not install is you temp folder is full of 'stuff'.

To safely clean up your temp folder, either go into MS DOS mode or safe mode. This way you do not accidently delete important Windows files.

Hope it works. BTW, I read this in a review about CFS2 somewhere.

Cheers
Ken

It worked! Strangely there was not much in there. I keep my hardrive pretty clean. Still you cant argue with success! Thanks for the tip.
