View Full Version : Problem Installing Area 51 of PCWorld DVD

Vista SP1

Hi all

I am having issues installing this, i have ended up downloading the file, and trying to install it from my desktop, but nothing happens, the cursor just does the busy signal, and nothing happens

I did notice when i tried to install it that a process called consent.exe was running I am assuming this is part of the UAC, however it never appeared on the screen.

It just hangs there, the rest of the computer works fine, infact i have got it installing as i write this, but nothing is happening

Any suggestions would be appreciated

You tried running it as administrator?

i've had the same problem trying to install that game.

it just hangs so i kill it in task manager.

it looks like a good game, shame i can't play it :(

I couldn't kill consent.exe in taskmanager that was why i ended up having to reboot.

Anyway the game is now installed, I tried installing again and after about 10 mins the install dialog came up, and the game seems to be installed, i haven't tried running it yet though.

What if you disable UAC first?
