  1. Im trying to install a game but whenever i try it it says 'the installshied engine (ikernel.exe) could not be installed. The folder CProgram Files\Common Files could not be created. Make sure you have the appropriate privelages to create this folder. (0xa1)' I have win98 and use cable. people have said i should try installing it on the administrator account, but i am the only user on the computer. does it matter if i have a ez firewall? sometimes my firewall has interfered with playing files on the internet.

    How about YOU creating the folder
    C:\Program Files\Common Files instead of letting the game try the (typo ?)
    CProgram Files\Common Files

    if that does not exist yet. Then try install again.
