    Go through the following steps to get a solution for your issue.
    First of all verify the that the files in the installation CD are readable
    • Then check whether your system satisfies minimum requirements to install the game
    • The game trying to install must be compatible with the OS version
    • Instead of using auto play option, try setup.exe to install the game
    • Make sure that there is no issue with the CD-KEY or Serial Number
    The programs running in the background can also make hindrance to installation process

    it may be of several reasons like:
    1. your system configuration may not support that game
    2. you may not installed drivers properly
    3. graphic card may not present in your system
    4. the game installer may be corrupted.
    so check for what might be the correct reason

    Hey friend,
    If you are unable to install the game in windows xp then check all these steps:-

    1) game is compatible with the windows xp.
    2) your system fulfills the game requirements .
    Like RAM, processor,graphics card and storage space requirement.
    3)right click on the setup file and run as administrator.

    IF the above conditions are fulfilled and still you are facing such problems then there is problem
    with the game installation file or in setup files, in this case use setup from another Source.

    Re: Unable to install a game in HP desktop running windows XP

    hi dear friend...........there are many reasons behind the issue


    first check whether the game is compatible with your system or not .....i mean RAM, processor are sufficient with the game or not..

    and also check whether the game Disk or setup file ....is working or not

    and some antiviruses like nortorn and AVIRA ..... which are automatically detects the dot.exe files

    due to this ....the .exe files will be deleted .....so, that .....then there is a problem in the installation

    and also check whether the graphics device installed properly or not



    ALL THE BEST.....!!!
