Issues with Quake Collector's Edition Installation

Recommended Posts

I bought the Quake collector's edition some time ago and installed Quake 2 on one of my computers. I got a newer one, and tried to install Quake 2 on it as well.
However, all I get is the DirectX 8.0 setup screen. No matter what I do, it never lets me install Quake 2; even if I do install DirectX nothing happens. And I'm the bloody administrator!

Does anyone have a fix? Or had this happen to them too?

Did you try installing the newest version of DirectX over the one Quake2 wants installed before playing?

Quake2 had a outdated DirectX installer as the autorun in some of its early CD masters. You'll have to manually locate the setup folder and execute the setup program.

Yeah, sadly I thought that one up right after I posted by using add/remove programs. Worked like a goddamned charm.

Well, I guess I can now ask how to get it's music working..
