Game installation fatal error!?!

  dave_johnston2k 16:20 08 Jul 2006

Hi guys

I tried to install Warhammer 40k today and the auto.exe file crashes out immediately with a fatal error, it doesnt state which one.

I find this odd as I previously had this game installed and working properly on my system.

What do u think could b the problem?

Tried looking for a "Game Patch" from the game company who made it?

Download the patch from click here and it should cure your problem.

If not post back because I have seen the solution to this problem somewhere!

The only problem I have is that the game will not even install so I cant even apply the patch. It exits out the soon as I hit the 'install' tab.

Any ideas?

sometimes disabling your AV while installing helps (seems to with some norton av products occasionally at least).
disconnect from the net first of course

after uninstall search for left over folders in program files and reg and delete them, then reinstall.

Good advice there from citadel and brundle, I would suspect that you need to remove everything appertaining to the game as doing an uninstall often leaves behind lots of dross that would interfere with a new installation.

Hope that makes sense.

Norton (if you have it) can also spoil your installation.

Thanks again
