I had to install the game on my wife's laptop on Win7 64. It would not let me install no matter what i did...so I simply opened Explorer, created a shortcut for the setup file on the desktop and ran it from there with admin privileges, keeping the disc in the drive, It installed flawlessly. Same with S&E. Strange and not really that unexpected, I have to run the game with admin read/write privileges. I think its because it does create a lot of folders all over the drive and some sections are in system folders. I also still modd for it so I do create a lot of content from apps that have to run in admin/god/overlord/I'm the master and you do what I want Bitch!!! mode...(yeah Win7 is f**ing paranoid) to get anything saved in the game folder. I can only suppose Win8.1 will be just as admin centric and because the game tech is rather old, there will be more and more unsupported system features. I'm not even sure if it supports DirectX9 that well, let alone the .Net Frame work. My modding tools are so-so running. I get crashes from time to time due to incompatibility issues...I'm not looking forward to Win10....:sweatdrop::49:

When I first tried to install The Movies on my current computer (Windows 8.1), the CD drive absolutely freaked out. It spun up and wouldn't stop, whirring and screeching for several minutes. After a clean reboot and using the Run as Admin, it all went fine.
Definitely not looking forward to future versions of Windows. :tt2:
