Lockups on Loading

by Xerxesix In reply to Someone help

I have experienced the same problem. First thing to do is to check whether your motherboard has a game port. One possibility is that the soundcard also has a game port and it creates a conflict. To take it one step further, disabling the gameportin the current configuration may not solve the problem. Manually assigning the resources for the game port may get you past the lockup on load but could cause lockups when you play. The only thing that worked for me was to remove all the soundcardsoftware and hardware, This got me past the installation and I can play without lockups. I have not had the chance to talk to the Soundblaster tech support to allow me to actually get the soundcard to work properly. Hope this helps to isolate theproblem.

Try copying CD files to disk

by savatovic In reply to Someone help

Try this:

Open Explorer
Open your disk where you have at least 600 MB free space (or at least as much as the size of your game CD).
Let's assume it is drive C:
On your C: disk create new folder "Devil_Inside".
Select and copy all the files from your CD to this new directory.
If you are successfull, try to run setup from this directory (for example go to Start, Run. Type C:\Devil_Inside\Setup.exe

If you still have problems, you may need to take your PC for repair.
