    Hi

    We haven't heard from you on ebay saying you had an issue


    Try this which another member suggested and seems to work well for Windows 10 as well

    Just installed this on windows 8.1 and encountered the issue with setup.exe hanging. Here is how to resolve.

    1. Browse to the disk contents by going to the drive letter where the disk is (either ISO or cd-rom).
    2. Right click on SETUP.EXE, go to Properties. Click on the Compatibility tab and choose Run this program in Windows XP (service pack 2) mode and tick the box "Run this program as an administrator".
    3. Double click on setup.exe
    4. If nothing happens, open up the task manager by right clicking on the task bar and choosing Task Manager or press control + shift + escape at the same time.
    5. Go to the Details tab on the task manager and sort by name. You are looking for SETUP.EXE. If there are multiple ones running then kill them all. Click on setup.exe in the list and press the delete key or the end task button to kill the process.
    6. Run setup.exe again as per step 3 - you only want one install process running.
    7. Back in the task manager, Right click on setup.exe and hit the Analyze Wait Chain option. This will tell you what is preventing the install from running. Find that process and kill it.

    In my case it was SetPoint.exe, a logitech program that controls my wireless mouse/keyboard software. As soon as I killed it the install launched.
    But try this

    I just needed this info, too, when installing a fresh (downloaded) copy and it worked like a charm.

    Right click my computer -> Properties -> Advanced Settings -> Environment Variables

    Delete anything related to CM.

    Install the game again.

    Once you have done that install the game

    See if it loads (this should be 3.9.60 version)

    If so, apply 3.9.68 patch

    Load the game, see it it loads

    If it does, then apply 2018 October Patch. Load the game
