Hi arbmal,

Can you please be more specific about your issue? When you say you "press install" are you talking about the AutoRun splash screen that comes up when you insert the disc?

Have you tried running the Installer.exe from the disc itself, using Compatibility Mode?

Cheers,

Walker

It's "Far Cry" not "Far Cray".

Anyways, Walker's advice is legit. +1

Might help if it was a legit copy of the game and not a pirated version, of which we can't help you with.

While I'm not surprised your pirated copy of Far Cry 2 is having problems, I am surprised you expect to receive help in a legitimate public forum such as this. And for future reference, real game discs generally do not come with crack folders on them.

Exactly why DRM exists. Hope that game never runs on your systems.

No, DRM exists to piss off customers that paid for the product.

the retail version of Far Cry 2 installs just fine in Win7 64bit. It's installing now.
