Default Game Loading Problem

Hey,

I bought a game, went to install it, but nothing came up after putting the disc in, unlike the normal 'Install' screen. I searched around on the internet, where I found a hint that said something like "Go to the driver, and manually click setup".

I installed it fine after that.

Then however, when I go to run the game by double clicking the deskyop icon, nothing loads at all.

Can any recommend anything to me here? I'm totally lost.

Thanks

probably made improperly.

go to the original game folder in "program files" and search for the original EXE file. Right-click on it, and send it to desktop.

Yeah, I tried that and still no luck at all.

The CD is in by the way.

So, yeah, still no luck. Anymore help would be fantastic, thanks.

(I think it may be to do with autoplay or something. Me knowing nothing about computers though, means I wouldn't know how to sort that out. Any tips?)
