Help needed with XP Magazine CD

  Rhuddlan 10:02 01 May 2003

I have the an edition of the XP magazine with a various demos on it, such as ejay and Rayman 3, installation is fine, but then when the game loads and I select English as the lanuage, a message appears saying that the database is missing, it works fine on my friends XP machine, they are both home editions and I have tried installing the demo in both of my hard drives, but still the same message appears, I have also tried playing the demo with and without the CD in the computer, but again this doesn't work, thanks for the help and sorry for being inpateient, as I have already posted a thread about this but with no solutions, regards, Rhuddlan.

The first thing I would try, Rhuddlan, is to use your mate's CD to install the demos on your PC. At least you know his is working, this course of action will rule in or out a possible problem with your free CD. It's not unknown for coverdisks to be corrupt, even when another one works perfectly.

My friend hasn't got the CD, the CD is mine and when I try it on her computer, it works perfectly, this sounds like a problem with my computer and not the CD, doesn't it, thanks for the help, but help still needed.

My solution would be to post this question as a thread in the forum of that magazine (whoever they are) they may have readers who have reported a similar problem....or maybe they don't have such a cool online Helproom as PC Advisor?

This may sound stupid but have you got your comp set to Language English British, in Control Panel Regional Settings

I should have yes, I've never looked, anyway i'm in work at the moment, so I'll check after 6PM tonight and let you all know if it is, thanks.

Yes, it is set to English British.

XP mag has a help section for punters of their mag. Why not ask or even give them a call. I did once and they were helpful.
