same thing to me
I'm also getting the same inability to install issue on my computer. Right now, I had my brother install it on his XP computer, and I'm copying the installed game to my hard drive right now. If this works, or I need help with getting it to work, I'll post.
Well, my workaround worked. Install the game on another computer, and copy the folders over. My only problem was that I got an EA window hassling me about my CD key. After putting in my key, it brought back the same window. I hit don't continue, reopened the game, and it game me the same window. Rather than hit "Don't Continue" this time, I control-alt-deleted the thing. I tried to open the game again, and what do you know it started right up.
Until another workaround is found this will work.
you can remove version checks with a OS-remove-Script Code v1.1 which is posted at our Win2kgaming forum.Follow the instructions how to install the games behaving like this.
u need to install dotnetframework.
i hope it will solve
