I just bought Final Fantasy XI - Vana’diel Collection, which comes on DVD
I’m having trouble actually installing this game, the installation comes in 4 parts, each selectable from the autorun menu on the DVD
- The Playonline Viewer/Tetra Master (launcher and card game thing)
- Final Fantasy XI (main game)
- Rise of the Zilart (first expansion)
- Chains of Promatia (second Expansion)
Now, Playonline installs fine, but FFXI loads up the installer, says it’s starting up and then asks for disc 1, then refuses to do anything else (the dvd is the only disc, it came on about 4 CDs in it’s original release) it even refuses to spin the disc to even check to see if it’s there
i checked the expansions and they seem to install fine, they start copying files.
Now, i had FFXI installed previously, when i borrowed the CDs from a friend to create an account, but stopped playing sometime last year, and uninstalled.
when the installer boots up it sets itself to install to my F: drive, which was where FFXI was installed when i first had it, is this a registry issue conflicting with the new installer?
I checked the DVD on our PC downstairs, and FFXI installs fine down there, with no problems, so it’s not the disc.
it seems to be an issue with the actual installer and MY computer, but i’m baffled.
thanks in advance
