Hey

I'm having trouble installing Majesty. None of this crazy gold edition NE stuff, just plain, normal Majesty. Whenever I try to install it, it says that it had an error installing iKernal.exe (This occurs as soon as the installation begins, as in immediately after I hit the install button). I checked the CD, and sure enough, iKernal was no longer an .exe, but now a .ex

I'm not sure what this problem is or how to fix it. I've played Majesty before using this CD, so there's something weird going on. Can anyone give me a hand?

THanks in advance.

I have no idea. You might just have to get a new disk. I never heard of a file's extension on a read-only CD (that's what installation disks are, right?) get changed. Sounds like the CD got physically damaged or something.

Yeah that is weird...
I did have trouble running Majesty on an old laptop once, but the issue was the disk protection software, not the CD itself.

One thing you could try . . .

Copy and paste everything from the CD to your hard drive, in whatever folder you'd like.

Then, rename the
Code:
iKernal.ex
file to
Code:
iKernal.exe
.

Run the installation .exe file (I don't remember exactly what it's called, Setup.exe or something). When it asks for the CD, there should be a Browse option. Browse to the folder you copied everything to.

At this point, it works or doesn't. I'm guessing it doesn't, but it might be the former. Maybe.
