# 1 Not valid Win 32 Application
02-03-2010, 05:24 PM
I just tried running the installer, and got the message that the installer exe is not a valid Win 32 application. This came off a new Collector's Edition box. Have been searching the forums and Internet looking for help, but can't find anything yet, and no response from Tech Support yet either. Does anyone have any ideas...when I look closely at the physical disk and the files on it, it doesn't seem to have anything (much) on it...just wondering if Atari burned this off the wrong master disk (wouldn't be the first time they have done that).

More likely its a duplication error. If you return the box to your retailer they will replace it under the mfg. warranty.

anyone? I'm copying the DVD to hard drive and trying to run the setup from there, i'll get back to you with results since it takes 55 minutes for the copy.

EDIT - Copying DVD (7.79 GB) to hard drive then running setup.exe from hard drive did work for me. Hope that helps for others also.
