manhill,

there is a dedicated Tech support forum for PCO here: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tt.asp?forumid=966

There is also a sticky thread with Installation notes you might need to read.

I have not seen that error message before. Make sure that you have allowed PCO to install the .Net and DirectX files that it prompts for, and make sure that you Don't reboot during the installation of those (the Micorsoft prompts imply that you should reboot to complete, but you should not do that.).

Thanks
rick

I will check the forum now, but I dont get the chance to install .NET or DirectX it just dosnt run the Main install itself. I've got directx already, and I think I may already have .NET but not sure.

I probably have something wrong somewhere on my system. Maybe I could get .NET from somewhere prior to installing I will try that too.

Thankyou Mark

It sounds like you might have a bad download then. You shouldn't need to find DirectX elsewhere. You might need to download again. Or maybe your AV SW got in the way?

Thanks

My PC is an iMac Dual booted XP SP2, but .NET wont install & complains its not SP2. SP3 wont install forgot why. But I think its because its a iMac. I've got Panzer Ostfront working on win7, so not to bad but .NET looks like wont work on my XP.

Ah, well, that might be a problem then. I have to admit, I have zero knowledge about iMacs.

Thanks, I hope you're able to enjoy it on the Win7 system at least.

Thanks

Hi Manhill,

If you can update your installation of Windows XP to SP3, everything should work fine. SP3 is required for the version of .NET that is used by Panzer Command Ostfront.

Regards,

- Erik

Thanks Erik, but the iMac wont allow it, it throws out the update saying you need 4mb of free space or something, I will have to install a new MacOSX and re-install everything, but I dont want to as everything is activated on XP

but in the future if I have a chance I will update it.

thanks Mark
