    This Game will NOT install under Vista 32bit. Has anyone found a solution.
    The installer starts, but says finished right away without copying files..

    Thanks for your help

    Did you try teh obvious like going to the CD rom instead of using the
    auto-run feature and choosing Run As administor on the setup.exe file ?

    Or right click on the setup.exe file, and choose properties and then choose,
    to run as XP in compat mode ?

    Right mouse click the setup.exe program and select "RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR".

    I have had to do that to a few programs to get them installed...

    I had the same problem but I did that

    1- I did a copy of all the 3 disks in a folder named Majesco\Jaw
    Unleashed
    2- I unzipped all the CABs there and then deleted the CABs when done
    3- I moved the WMV files in a folder that I named "movie"
    4- I moved the GDW files in a folder named "data"
    5- I changed the "Jaws.exe" by a NO-CD fix I found on the net
    6- Like specified I did a REG file to indicate the location of th
    folder
    by creating a new text file and copied that
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.0
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Majesco\Jaws Unleashed
    "Language"=dword:0000040
    "ExecutePath"="E:\\Majesco Entertainment\\Jaws Unleashed\\
    "MovieFolder"="E:\\Majesco Entertainment\\Jaws Unleashed\\movie
    "DataFolder"="E:\\Majesco Entertainment\\Jaws Unleashed\\data
    7- I saved it as "A.REG"
    8- Did a double-click on the file to MERGE the REG file and clicke
    "yes"
    9- I did a double-click on "Jaws.exe" and started to play
    Simple as that. No need to install another OS to this simple task
    Basically the installer is just doing that : unzip some files in th
    "Program Files\Majesco\Jaws Unleashed" folder and write the location o
    thoses files in the registry. It is easy to do this manually and bypas
    the dumb stuck msi installer. Now I can play the game with Vista and
    don't even have to use the CD 1 anymore to start it
    Hope this will be useful

    hi guys
    there's a easier way to do this..

    you just open the CMD (click start and type "cmd" in search) once th
    cmd window opens, you type

    msiexec /qb /i LETTER FOR YOUR DVD DRIVE:\default.msi TARGETDIR="C:\TH
    NAME OF THE FOLDER YOU WANT TO CREATE

    exemple of what i typed: msiexec /qb /i G:\default.ms
    TARGETDIR="C:\Program Files\Majesco Entertainement

    :

    if you have this message it means you typed the wrong line, be carefu
    with the 'space'
    here: msiexec(space here-->) /qb(space here-->) /i(space here-->
    G:\default.msi TARGETDIR="C:\Program Files\Majesco Entertainement

    well i can't entirely see the line you typed, but from what i see here
    you asked it to look in you C: drive for the dvd, which can't be. you
    dvd drive might be E or G or anything but not C:! that's why it can'
    find the package..
