Okie, so my problem is: da installation never ends successfully ....being prompt by that 131 error thingy. I've got no problem running and playing ROC. Just the problem installing TFT expansion. The error I get is: Code: War3_install This application has encountered a critical error. ERROR #131 (0x85100083) Program: C:\DOCUME~1\HEAD~\LOCALS~1\Temp\war3_install.exe File: files100\war3x.mpq Press OK to terminate the application. Error 131 being acknowledged by Blizzard: http://www.blizzard.com/support/?id=awr0736p I've actually ran through the solution steps recommended by Blizzard and tried em for a couple of times [for the whole day !] but to no avail. 1st: Closing background applications 2nd: DMA and Sync Data Transfer 3rd: Copy the contents of TFT CD to your hd and install the game from there. ________________________________________________________________ IMHO, da problem occured cause of war3x.mpq [>400mb] which, I think, is decompressed during installation. These are what i've attempted so far: Copying the CD to my hd and installing from there ... failed. Tried a clean boot (Selective Startup)... failed. Tried Safe Mode... failed. Tried setting my page file [virtual memory] to 1.3GB ... failed. ________________________________________________________________ My rig: Hp Compaq NX6120 Proccessor: 173GHz Ram: 504mb Display: Integrated kinda from Intel [Cldn rmmbr wat's it] Guest there's no problem with my rig [actually more to office use] ________________________________________________________________ Bottomline: Anyone care to enlighten me with this error ? Thx in advance.
