Season One DVD problem / Vista

posted by scholar768 on - last edited - Viewed by 201 users

I can't do anything with this DVD - it shows up as SNM_SEASON1 in Windows Explorer... but clicking on it produces this error:

"Error Accessing the System Registry"

followed by

"Unexpected Error; quitting"

All other DVDs work. Just this one has problems.

Anyone else having this problem? Is there a fix? I'm running Vista Home Premium on an Athlon 64 X2 3800+, 2 gig RAM, 2x 6600GTs in SLI.

Help!

    Could you show me where you saw this? (I'm assuming somewhere on The Adventure Company's website?)

    Even though you're already using an administrator account, did you try right-clicking on the setup file and selecting "Run as Administrator"?

  • I'm experiencing the same error.
    My set up is

    Vista Home Premium
    Core 2 Duo E6750
    Asus P5K Mobo
    2 Gig DDR2 6200 OCZ
    Geforce 7600GT 256MB

    Did you try this? It's hard for us to help without knowing if this suggestion works or not.

    Just tried it & it works, Thanks for that :)

  • Running sam & max season 1 setup with run as administrator doesn't work for me:mad: and i have two dvd drives and i'm running vista home premium 32 bit
    plus my copy of sam & max season 1 is also cd rom.

  • Hey Hugh, if you are using a store bought cd-rom copy of Season 1 you may be suffering from this problem.

    Thanks for your reply will.
    My copy of sam & max season 1 worked on windows xp just fine before i upgraded to vista.
    I didn't mention in my previous message is that when i tried to run setup as run as administrator ether drive i tried it on would just keep spinning (have drive light on but do nothing):eek:.

  • Try copying the installation files onto your computer and then install from files on your hard drive. At the very least, that should eliminate at least one factor from the equation so we can figure out what is going on.

    I reinstalled xp so it's too late for that now.

  • I attempted to install the games on my girlfriend's computer, and got the exact same problem. She, too, has Vista, and the problem wasn't the installer, but the autorun. I used explorer to get onto the contents of the CD, and manually press the setup-file. After having waited a minute or two for a response, a box popped up requesting permition to allow the setup-file to run, and upon allowing it, the setup started as usual. So if anyone is experiencing the same problem, that should do it. :)
