Specs: Windows XP, 2.39 ghz/1.00 ram

I can't get a game to load
I put the cd in the rom, hit install, nothing happens. I tried another cd and it worked. Could the disk be bad.

Yes, try the disk on another system.

So then the CD opens to a screen with an option to install? Did you try using explore to look for a setup.exe file on the disk?

There are settings for your CD drives to perform a certain way. If those settings have not been selected, or they are corrupted, then you need to run the CD from My Computer. Right click on the drive icon in My Computer and choose open or explore.

If you are trying to install that game then look for a listing in the folder for Setup or install.

Can we assume you are an admin user? Try right click installer and drop down menu to run as then select an admin user.

The cd worked on one computer so we might think it is good. Is it a copied disk?

There might be some note in event logs, see event viewer for possible clues.

No it is a cd The game is called Drakan.
I had this installed on my old pc and it played well.
Here is the message I get when I try to use administrator option on my pc now.

C:DOCUM-1\TheCom\Locals-1\Temp\.
a temporary file needed for installation could not be created or could not be written to. Make sure the directory path exist and disk space i available.

Not sure what all the means.

Pay attention to WHERE you are installing the game.
