i have all the latest updates like from windows update etc and display drivers n dx9 but no hope ?
any one no ? thanx
EDIT: OK I WAITED 2 HOURS 12 MINS AND IT FINALLY POPPED UP AND INSTALLED BUT NOW I GOT A NEW PROBLEM, WHEN I PLAY THE GAME B4 THE STAGE STARTS IT BOOTS ME OUT WITH THIS ERROR:
ERROR: directx 3d device driver does noty accuratly report texture memory usuage. contact your 3d accelerator vendor for updated drivers.
im using 53.03 on a Ti4200 with DX9 & XPSP1 any one no how to fix it ?
It's the drivers, go back to 45.23 or 43.45. I had the same problem when I tried to play my copies of Thief 2 and System Shock 2 and changing driver fixed it.
