Yea, I know, this isn't TR related but it's been ****ing me off for about an hour now. I just finished reinstalling WinXP w/SP2 and have been trying to install Battle for Middle Earth 2. Each time I do, it'll give me an error about EReg crashing. I guess what I'm wondering, has anyone heard of this game not installing correctly after having SP2 and a full update from microsoft?

Have you tried installing the patch update? http://www.gamespot.com/pc/strategy/battleformiddleearth2/downloads.html

Thanks Joseph. I would if I could even get the game to install. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the cd not be read correctly.

So you reinstalled Windows XP SP2. But have you then also updated your motherboard drivers? Graphic and sound card drivers? Updated DirectX9.0c?
These all should be done before installing programs and games.

All, up todate. That's usually the first thing I do. I'm going to try copying the cd to a separate hdd and then do the install from that.

EDIT: Figured it out. Firmware for my DVD drive was out of date.
