I am going to be away from home and will be staying at my parents house where there is no net connection. Angry
I very much would like to take a cd copy of this game with me to help fight off the bordem but when I put it on a disc and tried it on my laptop, it didn't work. Question is, can I not burn it and take it with me? TIA Smiley

You didn't say, but I'm guessing you're running a Windows OS.  So if you mean that you burned a copy of the file folder containing the installed game on to a CD then, no, that won't work.

You need the installation executable to correctly install the game to a new machine.

If you still have the digital download of the game you got back in 2009 along with Patch #1 and Patch #2 then just burn those three to CD and either install on your laptop or on to your parent's machine when you get there.  (you can always de-install before you leave)

Hope this helps.

P.S.  Don't forget to compare your laptop's specs against the game's requirements or you'll just frustrate yourself even further.   Roll Eyes

Thanks so much for your informative reply. Yes, I am running windows (7) and later on today I will follow what you have told me. Fingers crossed it's going to work. Smiley
