Windows 7: Error while installing Oblivion

02 Jul 2010   #21

Win 7 x86 build 7600

sorry for not posting anything on the last days, i was just too busy (exams )
i finally managed to install it on the VMWare. but it works really slow in low settings, and hardly lags whenever someones trying to attack me...
i set my virtual machine to 2 cores (out of 4) and 768MB of memory (out of 2048). any idea?

and thanks a lot for your help. i really hoped to find a real fix and not a workarround to that problem, but nevermind :) really appreciate your help X)

Up your virtual memory, if you close down all running process that aren't needed you can free up more memory.
I have mine set to a single core and 1024MB RAM.

Here's a few screenies to help, they show my current screen size in windows and the game (everything else was left default in the game) . I played this with another VM already open and some media conversion happening in the OS background. There was no delay in normal walking around or fighting.
