Post by harrietlol on Sun 24 Jan 2016, 17:41

Hey everyone! I've been installing the game for about an hour now and it's just stuck at 'updating component registration'- i tried to install it earlier but the installer crashed at this point! Any advice? Smile

Hello and welcome to the forum @harrietlol,


By chance, are you installing the game from a USB-flashdrive or a similar device ? If yes, try copying the actual installer files onto your system's C: drive. Then resume the installation from there.

Also, are you using WinRAR for extracting the contents of the .RAR download ? You should only use WinRAR. In case you don't have it, you can get it here (install instructions are included):

Good luck for now !
