I purchased the Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space retail disc, and after installing it none of the episodes will start. When I try to run them, either through the Autorun or by directly starting a SamMax20*.exe file, I get the disc activity cursor for a bit and can see the exe for the episode gathering RAM for itself in task manager, but when it gets to about 28 mb it just terminates without any messaging.
I've tried restarting my computer. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, without antivirus running. The behavior persists.
Running Windows XP.
