    Game setting and choose "windowed"

    If already doing that then check Screen Resolution thread in Tech Support

    Greetings to everyone in this wonderful forum. Below is not so much CM related, but since it may have occurred to some of you, maybe you could assist me.

    I wish to install the game in another one of my laptops. So, while I completed the installation correctly, it asks me as usual for the DirectX (by the way, do I need to install it in new PC's?). I thought I had pressed the option to install the DirectX, but then I got a message saying I didn't. Anyway, I immediately uninstalled CM then tried to install it again, but it's not possible anymore. Apparently "Setup has detected that Uninstallshield is in use" and I should close it. Note that I run the setup as administrator and in compatibility mode.

    Restart didn't do anything. Apparently, the uninstall that I carried out had some bug which left open the uninstallshied. However, after a quick google search and a thorough search in my Task Manager processes, I do not see any open process related to uninstall which I should end.

    Any ideas?

    Do you mean a restart of the computer? If not, do it. Windows can be weird like that sometimes - I'm sure we have all not been able to delete a file or folder because it is in use by another program or application, even though it isn't really.

    go to control panel and add/remove programs

    remove CM if not already done

    go to program files and remove all CM folders

    re-install

    make sure you run EVERYTHING as admin

    Do not have any background programs running or messaging services like skype

    Let us know how you get on after that - if same error then maybe background process is an issue in task manager

    To change start year use Tapani 2.21.1 patch or maybe Nicks Patch - Saturn Patch will be a few days yet which also does it

    Yes I mean restart of the computer. I did it four times, but the problem persisted. I could not install CM due to some "trash" from the uninstallshield still running, which was also not traceable in the Task Manager background processes. Quite strange.

    Anyhow, I shut down the computer, then opened it a few hours later and the problem had disappeared. I could actually install the CM without any problem.

    To conclude, I don't know exactly what the problem was, but restarting the PC didn't solve anything. On the other hand, shutting off and power up again after a few hours did the trick.

    Having this exact same issue now. It loaded and played ok first time up but stuck on this screen now after downloading the Tapani patch to update the season start to 19/20 from default 01/02. Tried the administrator trick but no joy.
    Any ideas??

    We will need a little bit more that "I get an error message" in order to assist.

    cant get game to load, get a few errors, Can't Open VCD and langlib

    So if i open the file on my desktop i get a Can't Open VCD error.

    If i try opening the file from the new virtual drive i get a Error v3.9.60 Langlib..cpp 389 and the na v3.9.60 game_config..cpp 84 error

    I've had a search and cant see anything in the forum so sorry if putting up a duplicate post.

    Any help in what i should try? I reinstalled CM again to ensure it wasnt that, and i can see the virtual drive with the files on it for CM.

    I have just done the basic download of the game, no patches or anything.

    Any help or pointers would be appreciated, thanks.

    Running as admin needs to be all the time so ensure that ticked and try compatability XP2 or 3

    failing that, might be worth an uninstall and re-install as sounds like you've added/changed a couple of things

    New player update and game start problems

    Firstly, amazing work gents. If I ever get this working, it may see me through these difficult times!

    Secondly, I have to apologise as I am possibly the most computer illiterate person to walk this earth so a real idiots step by step walkthrough may be required.

    So...I have followed the initial instructions and installed the game. However when I attempt to play it, it comes up with the message, not enough memory. I'd be staggered if this is the case as this is a brand new laptop and it has nothing saved on it apart from the programs it comes with, Windows etc. It's not a top of the range bit of kit, (I bought it for my son for Xmas) but I'd guess this would have ample capabilities and storage to run a 20 year old game! So if anybody has any ideas I'd be eternally grateful.

    Secondly, I've tried but as yet been unsuccessful in trying to update the file with the current players patch. I get to virtually the very end where the information is copied and pasted into the DATA file of the original program but I keep getting a message stating I need the Administrator's permission to do so. However I have followed the instructions prior to this where I enable something and make myself administrator for the program. I've double and triple checked this is the case and it shows the required boxes ticked as they should be so I haven't a clue where I'm going wrong.

    If anybody can help with either/both of these issues, there is a very large cyber beer and virtual bag of pork scratchings heading your way.

    Cheers

    John

    Not enough memory - Run the game as administrator - that is point 3 on the instructions if you downloaded from here

    Editor - Run it as administrator otherwise it will not save your changes

    Hi there, not a very computer literate person myself here. I seem to have downloaded the cm0102 File. I've tried downloading Slysoft virtual clone drive. I've had two attempts that dowload as an .exe file and they wont open. My universal file opener tried to open the file but it doesn't help me to open the file. Is there an explanantion why? apart from me being a numpty.

    Thanks
