I've been trying for the last two hours to install but I can't even get the setup.exe within the disk to work.

I've tried all the usual suspects such as running with compatability mode, run as admin etc. but nothing seems to work.

Here is the error I get:

Your disk might be scratched, try downloading an ISO image of the install disk and mounting it, might work that way.

Tried that too, still the same error. Or the ISO wasn't cracked properly and safedisk was all "no."

Got it working in the end, I don't think the installer liked the fact i'm using a 32" monitor with my screen resolution maxed out. in the end I just opened the installer up and extracted all the files that would go into C:\Westwood\Renegade\Data and then just used TT patcher to update it all then went into the registry and manually entered my serial. Works like a charm.

Is that a problem with renengades installer? the fact it doesn't support big screen resolutions? would be useful to know for future reference.

Could be an issue since it has that ridiculous full screen DirectX installer that takes bloody ages to load. I've never tried it on anything higher than 1680x1050

FYI, simply extracting the files might not install WOL properly if you use that. Not sure if it needs more than just the serial number in the registry...

Not sure how but WOL components work fine, all I did was start Renegade then patch using TT then edit my serial in the registry, I can create new nicknames and see the server listings in Renegade.

The scripts 4.0 patch includes a version of WOLAPI that doesn't require administrator privileges to save your username/password and is is loaded by Renegade using registration-free COM.
