Howdy

I am trying to install games onto my PC which I have had for about 3 months. I never had this problem before hand so not sure what it could be.

I place the disc into the DVD drive (in this case, Warcraft 3) and I get the usual popup but looking different than normal, which looks like this:

Since it doesn't tell me to install, I enter the CD to have a look and find the files like this:

the installer files don't seem to be working and when I double click, I get this message:

Now I am an admin on the computer so I don't know how I can't get permission. Also I don't know whether this is correct but I get a different icon when the CD is loaded in on the MyComputer page:

I have checked other accounts and they have the same problem, can anyone help me with this matter please?!

Thank you

Have you tried using the G drive? If it asks what action to take, select no action then go to My Computer and select Play from there

I have tried on the G drive and its excatly the same. As for choosing no action, it only has open and explore, just like a data CD.

Just to make you aware, it doesn't install any software, not just games so not sure why this moved in here.
