Installer doesn't work: Earthsiege II 32-bit Installer

Post by ejsanch » Sat Sep 10, 2011 1:15 pm

Hello forum,

I was wondering if anyone knew how to get around the installer not recognizing the CDROM when it is inserted. I can see the Earthsiege disk in explorer, but when the installer tries to load it up, it keeps kicking the disc out and asking me to insert the ES2 disk.

Anyone else have this issue?

Perhaps you have a different version than what the installer was based on. What is the disc label? Post a list of the files in the base of the CD.

It is a version difference problem. Support for your version would have to be added into the installer. Check your PM.

Same problem here with reseller CD version

Post by FNW » Tue Nov 08, 2011 3:52 pm

Hi there,
unfortunately, I have exactly the same problem with your current version of the Earth Siege II 32-bit installer.
Although I have two copies of the game (one from an old game pack called 'Gold Games 2' and another CD from a reseller called Pointsoft), it seems that both are not identical to the original Sierra version...
The file / folder structure on the CD's root look like this - I don't know the version of the game as this in not printed on the CD label (guess it's the most recent one available):

As I eagerly want to play this game on my small server laptop (Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) and the original Sierra installer does not work on 64 bit systems, I hope that some friendly supporter will help me out.
If you want me to prove that I really own to copies of this game I can also scan the CDs and covers - just let me know...

In hope of a reply

FNW, I have added initial support for your version. You can download it again. There is one odd bug that I don't have time to deal with at this time. When returning after finishing a mission, the colors become corrupted. Upon starting a new mission the colors should be OK. You can play with compatibility settings.

You didn't try to apply any patches after installing it, did you?

Made a couple of slight changes. Download it again and do a clean reinstall. If it still happens, attach a full, unedited diagnostic.

Looks like Vista home is missing cscript, which is included with Pro. Drop this in your Windows\System32 folder and rerun the installer.

I have a cscript.exe in my System32 folder but it looks like a different version (smaller size). I was going to temporarily rename or delete it, and move yours into there, but it wouldn't let me rename or delete it, so I'm kind of stuck now. Here's the version I have in case you want to take a look..

I thought that might be it because of the "Can't find script engine" error. If it is not that, then you may be missing vbscript.dll and/or jscript.dll or they are not properly registered on your system. You can try fixing it by either doing a system file scan with elevated privleges (note that this way may take some time to complete):

Code: Select all

SFC /scannow
or check that the DLLs are there and re-registering them.
  1. Go to Start, type cmd In the search, right-click on cmd.exe at the top of the menu and select "Run as administrator"
  2. Type regsvr32 %windir%\system32\vbscript.dll then press enter.
  3. Type regsvr32 %windir%\system32\jscript.dll then press enter.
If successful, you should get a message:
DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded.
