View Full Version : Painkiller won't install

04-10-08, 00:59
Can someone help me with this game, please? I just got Painkiller for my PC (windows xp), and it won't install. Whenever I put in the cd, it doesn't do anything, and if I try to do autorun, it freezes. The weird thing is, it actually installed fine the first time I tried to install it, but then it wouldn't load (which is a problem I'll deal with later). Whenever a game doesn't load, my first assumption tends to be that I screwed up the installation somehow. So I uninstalled it so that I could try again. Now I can't reinstall it. And that's the whole story.

I've looked up technical faqs, googled painkiller installation, everything I could think of. Can anyone tell me why a game would suddenly not let me install it? Thanks.

1. Uninstall the game.
2. Delete it's folder.
3. Reboot the PC.
4. Use Reg Cleaner (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/regcleaner.zip) in automatic mode to clean the obsolete settings from the registry.
5. Reboot once more.
6. Reinstall the game not via autorun menu of the disc, but running the Setup.exe manually.

7. Try running the game in Windows 98 compatibility mode (right click, select Properties, Compatibility tab, set there).

If still any issues, run Diagnose.exe (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/diagnose.exe) and post the report.
