Hi everyone, new to the forums here and just someone trying to get System Shock to download onto his XP machine (I'm new to the series, but have played its 'sister' BioShock and am a fan of it). I'm only asking this question because I don't think my problem has been addressed in the thread (or at least not that my find button could discern). You're forewarned - I have little to no real experience with computers, which is probably why I'm utterly lost as to what might be to everyone else a very simple problem to fix; I'm installing from the System Shock CD itself. So here goes:
I boot up the computer, pop the CD in go to C:\ and make a file called System Shock. I go to D:\ (now EA) and go to INSTALL.EXE. The System Shock Terminal Access Installation screen pops up. I hit 'Begin Installation.' It asks me to select a destination for a directory and I make it the (C:\Program Files\System Shock) and hit ok. It says it copies the files (though none appear later when I open it), but when it gets to the task of updating the registry, I get this message:
"Visual Studio Just-In-Time Debugger
An unhandled win32 exception occurred in INST32.EXE . Just-In-Time debugging this exception failed with the following error: No installed debugger has Just-In-Time debugging enabled. In Visual Studio, Just-In-Time debugging can be enabled from Tools/Options/Debugging/Just-In-Time.
Check the documentation index for 'Just-in-time debugging, errors' for more information."
However, again from what I understand, I can't seem to locate any such documents on my computer. Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks!
