Have to reinstall B2 B every time

Recommended Posts

Hi there, Two of my gaming friends have had a problem develop out of left field with Barbarossa to Berlin. Every time they want to play the game has to be reinstalled. My version is still fine so far. One is in England the other here in Christchurch New Zealand, not sure what version of Windows they run but I am running Win XP Pro.

Needless to say this has ruined my email games to England.

Has anyone had a similar problem?

Not here - do they have installation rights on their machines (i.e. are they Administrator). If not, they could ask the Administrator (politely usually works well) to install the program - this might, just might, help.

Also try installing with anti-virus off.

Other ideas, Other Means?

The OS details would be helpful - hope this was.

It's strange that they both have the problem, independentally. Do your mates start the game via a desktop icon, or do they put the cd-rom into the drive and wait for the autoplay menu? I have the CDV version of the disc, and its autoplay, I recall (I have autoplay disabled in Windows), didn't work that well with it - it didn't seem to understand that the game was installed and ready to play. So could it be that they are fooled by that?
