Hello,
I'm trying to get pirates2 installed on my xp machine. I try to install it using the pirates2.bat program.
Its starts to take me throught the installation program and when I choose a directory it blows up and gives me the following message:

"please go to control panel to install and configure system components"
I tried the things listed on the web site, but they don't seem to work since it is a .bat file as opposed to a .exe.
Any help would be welcome.
Thanks.

Drew

What kind of things does it ask you to install. This information should be useful when tryiing to figure out the exact problem.

I don't believe it asks for any specific files. That is part of the problem, I'm not sure what it wants me to do. Unless I'm just not seeing where it is asking for the specific files.

Dosbox may work, too.
