oh and if that dosnt work try installing it on the D or E drive b/c sometimes the C is all full...E works the best...and the fastest...

It happened to me buuuuuuuut, I fixed it and I can't remember how.....sheesh...If I think of it I'll add onto this. Try cleaning the disk for now and not playing the game.

Of course, it might be a problem with the disc (if that's the case then there isn't much you can do besides getting a new one), but if you managed to install it on your other computer that shouldn't be the case, unless you somehow damaged the disc after you installed it on the other computer.
MFS answered Tuesday August 9 2005, 4:43 am: I assume you've checked to make sure you have enough disk space, yes?
Could it be that the 3rd disc is corrupt? It happens - a CD gets burned at the factory and just contains bad data.
It could also be that at 49% - it is trying to install a component that is conflicting with something already installed on your computer. You can try shutting down all background tasks and install again to see if that gets you any further. [ MFS's advice column | Ask MFS A Question ]
