simpsons hit and run game loading problems

I have tried to installl simpson hit and run game which was going well until I was asked if I wanted to install directX, I foolishly said no. I have subsequently installed directX, but the game will not now install at all. What can I do ?

The game is quite old and my pc has vista could this be a possible problem

Please help as I have a disappointed 7 year old daughter !

Cant comment if Vista is the issue, but I had a similar problem with one of my sons games (forget which one). We resolved it by removing any reference to the game on the PC using both Add and Remove programs, and also the uninstall option on the game disc. We then had the option to reinstall the game.

I believe the software had partly installed, to the point where it did not think it needed to install further, but not enough to run the game.

Hope this helps you and your daughter.

did you install DirectX Version 10 or 9? The game likely looks for version 9, it could be that it doesnt 'see' version 10 if that is what is installed (albeit you would hope 10 would be backwards compatible).
