I have been trying to install medal of honor Airborne, With no luck,The installation gets to the serial number screen but then just seems to stop, There is plenty of disk activity, but that's as for as it gets,
My system is Vista 32bit (service pack 1), With dual core 3GB Pentium, 350GB hard disk, 2GB memory And BFG geforce 8600GTS, Any help appreciated.

as it is a few years old it may be for windows xp.

It says here that it is compatible

Could be a duff disc, can you try it on another machine or return it for a replacement?

If anything fails to install with Vista,the first thing i try is to turn off the UAC.
Start>control panel>user accounts>turn user account control off.

On a forum someone said that it takes ages and ages to install.They left it for a long while and eventually a pop up appeared asking if they wanted to install it.
Another answer said-
For anyone else experiencing this problem it's a bug in the installer related to Windows Firewall. You must have it on and the associated service started for it to install correctly.

Try running it in compatibility mode.

I searched for Ageia Physx drivers and found the problem was I had version v.7.09.13, Installed for some reason, but the game comes with version v.7.07.09, So I uninstalled the former and now the game installs and runs OK, hope this will be of some use. problem solved!.
