Been wanting to play this for a while now, and the resurrection of the site and the franchise drove me over the cliff. But it appears I cannot even install it. I own the "Sold Out" pack which came with Carmageddon 2 and that game we shall not speak of. When I try to install, nothing happens. I try to open the "Setup.exe" file instead of "Setup.Now.exe", which a guide to making it work says, but no such luck. Tried different compatibility settings, nothing. Something does appear in my Task Manager though.
Something called "ntvdm.exe" pops up (it appears it is needed to run certain games and dos-applications) and as sub-tasks for that one I get "setup.exe" and "wowexec.exe". Setup is a given, while the other one seems to be needed for 16-bit applications. But nothing happens after these tasks appear, and I am forced to stop them.
Since I thought it might have been my disc that was the error, I went online to download the game. I know, pirating is bad. But in this case I own the disc, I have used the disc countless of times, and I really wanted to play the game again. I found a CD-image of the game, got it down, mounted it and tried to install. The same problem occurs.
Now, I know there must be something wrong with my computer when I get the same problem on two different discs of the game. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this? Once I got it installed I'll follow a guide to make it work, but there are no guides on what to do if it doesn't even install.
Any help will be appreciated. Here is a fresh DxDiag, which might be helpful.
