    Hey there

    Just brought myself LOTR Battle for Middle Earth 1, for PC today. An
    i cannot even start the installation, comes up with 2 error message
    which both state that the data is corrupted, the game is brand new fro
    "Game".

    I am running Vista Ultimate with 32 Bit, with a Dell XPS420, surel
    this should not be a problem...

    Any help would be much apprechiated.

    Thanks

    Trista

    Well I can confirm that BFME does run on 32-bit Vista. By the sound of the
    error messages it sounds like it could be a faulty disc. In which case Game
    should give you a replacement copy without any hassle (they're usually
    pretty good).

    Clear your temp files on your HD, I forget which installer EA used on
    BFME1, if they used InstallShield sometimes clearing your temp files
    helps clear up IS errors. If they used their installer you might try
    opening the CD, find the Autorun or whatever program starts on the CD
    (setup.exe), right-click and run as admin or try setting compatibility
    mode to Windows XP.

    Worse case scenario exchange or try BFME2.

    (I admit the main reason I responded to this was to say that you should
    try BFME2, much better game, IMHO)
