I recently tried to install NFS Underground 2, but it failed to install. On startup, it either doesn't do anything, or it displays the opening image, and after a few seconds, it's gone.
Event Viewer says this :
The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: 6.
I was also re-installing some other NFS games, and I found that suddenly NFS Most Wanted does not want to install anymore either. I had this one running earlier. It has the same kind of behaviour now.
All games are legit, original CD's. I know there is an issue with procexp.exe running, so I stop it when installing/running NFS.
I just installed NFS Underground (1) without any issue. Note that I have lots of other NFS and EA products as well on this PC.
What is making this software not to run/install ? There is NO error message on the screen.
