I will try it thank you, sorry again for getting impatient, seems i had to click run or install on my cd options, for some reason it wasn't, but now it keeps getting stuck on the install, i will send a image but i dont know if its my game it self or the windows 10

you said the patch works only after the installation, but it freezes at that point and wont cancel when i try to restart it, it forced my to hold the power button to shut down, would that be because the game disk could be old?

i just hate to have to throw a game away that i loved playing, and no idea where to find it again most games that are old like this i cant find too often

The patch works after the installation, but I sent a backup installer for the full game (1.8GB). Thanks to this, you won't need the CD working to install EE2. Please check my previous post for the .zip link.

Sorry for late reply - I wasn't home.

Since it's working, I guess questions about the setup.exe file can be skipped.
In the second photo I can see the Minor Update installer. This is fine. You've installed the old version of UP1.5 from the .zip archive, and it was just updated to the newest one from June 2020.

I was asking 3 times about the CD problems, in hope to see some screenshot showing the actual game CD or the moment where installation fails. It is because sharing the full game installer is not something common to do, and could be considered as piracy. This is why I wanted some "stronger" confirmation, before I could share the backup archive. It might sound "annoying", but I often verify information before providing the actual answers. EE2 community has players around the world. Some of them have problems describing what the actual problem is. For example, on the Support Chat some players are reporting that their game "crashes", while they just have problems maximizing it. If I weren't confirming those things, it would be giving totally different solutions for unhandled exception game crashes, instead of a simple tutorial video how to fix those maximization problems. So this is why it can sometimes sound like I didn't understand the problem, while I just want to confirm stuff with direct replies. On the forum it's sometimes harder to keep up, because messages are posted with a greater delay than on the Support Chat. I might forget certain things and just ask again. Hope it clarifies some things.
