Hello all,
. . . . I had a hard drive problem and all of my game folders and files were deleted. I am in the process of reinstalling and setting my games up. When I try to reinstall Caesar IV I receive an error message that Caesar IV is already installed and that I need to uninstall it before proceeding. Of course Caesar IV is not on my hard drive. I have searched the Registry but nothing was found. I have tried to extract the data cabs on the CD but I can't get expand to work properly. My unzip programs tell me the data cabs are corrupted. I am stuck. Can someone please help me out with this?
Thanks and GOD Bless,
rich!

You will have to go to the "C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield Installation Information" folder (a hidden system folder) and find the subfolder that belongs to Caesar IV and rename it, as it is a system folder it might ask you to log on as administrator for opening it. If you are the only user of the computer simply use your username and password. If you do not use a password simply hit Enter when you see the message. To find the correct folder, open the folders one at a time, open the file "setup.ini" and check what it say at "AppName:". When you have found the corret folder (it has a name made by numbers and letters), rename it. If you want to delete it, first check in setup.ini that you are deleting the correct folder.

Hello Dania,
. . . . It worked. I was able to install Caesar with no problems and it runs correctly.
Thanks and GOD Bless,
