Vista crashes when I try to install!!!!!!
I have loaded many games on this computer (it was why I built it) but the
last three games I bought will not install. They are Call of Duty 4, Medal
of Honor Airborne, and Blazing Angels 2. Vista crashes when I try to install
these. Has anyone had this happen to them? I'm getting so sick of this
system crashing just because Microsoft can't get it together. I have two
drives and it doesn't matter which one it is in the result is the same. The
hardware is sound.

Right click the setup.exe, Run As Administrator.
You should also use Administrator to run the games after installation.

You might want to disable UAC once and for all, but is not recommended.

Vista runs great for me and CoD 4, if all games are exhibiting the same
problem then it's probably not the games, it's probably your system.

What do you mean they won't install? When do they fail? What are your system
components? Any other information might be helpful other than, "Won't
install". What have you tried so far?

Microsoft has it together, sounds like there's something in your setup
causing problems. List your hardware, be specific, lets see if we can narrow
down the problem.

dont install punkbuster, dont install direct x 9.0c
explore the disk and copy the contents a folder on your desktop, and
delete pbsvc.exe and pb.cab.
then install using setup.exe

you dont have to install as admin
