Yeah I appreciate the help gang, it just does not want to do anything with the splash install screen freezing, if that makes any sense. I'll keep trying or just wait for MS to come up with a fix for this. Or...just play the game on my Xbox360 lol.

Finally found the fix

The problem is with the version of Games Live Installer.
I have tried all the listed tricks to no avail. I finally found this on a MS forum.
The halo2 installer sees Games Live files that are resident on Windows 7 and thinks there is another instance running, and wont install. The fix is to download and install this version of the Games Live (not newer). XLiveRedist01.02.0241.00
I have used this several times and it works.

Halo 2 Initialization Failed Error

I installed Halo 2 and when I click to play the game, I get an error that says: Initialization failed. Either insuffecient resources were found to run the game, or game data is missing or damaged. Reinstalling the game may fix this problem.

My PC specs are
1 GB RAM
Win 7 Ultimate 32bit
220 Free Space in hard drive
Intel G31/G33 Express Chipset Family 256 MB


And I played same game on my friend's pc
which has 4GB of RAM, Win 7 Ultimate 32bit, Intel HD ggraphics, 500gb hdd space

I completed Halo 1 1000 Times

Dear mjsumits,
In looking at your computer specs, I'm not sure you will be able to play Halo 2. Is there anyway you can increase your RAM? Your whole system would run better if you could increase the RAM to the maximum your system can hold. I would also suggest a dedicated video as well.

What he said. I agree with him 100%. You really should get at least even just 1 more gig of RAM (which is probably cheap). And at least a 512mb GPU at the minimum.

Well I'm thinking the game should at least start; though I agree that the specs aren't idea.

That said, to the OP, have you looked seen this post - How to get Halo 2 working under Windows 7

Have a look and see if these directions can't get you started. However, don't be surprised if the game runs slow, if it even starts seeing your system specs.

Good luck.
