Default Risen Install Problem

April 25th, 2010, 16:44
I bought the PC version of Risen from Direct2Drive, which is only relevant because rather than having a CD, all the install files are on my computer.

I am getting C++ errors when trying to install. I believe this is a problem with my computer and not the game…HOWEVER, on other games, I have simply been able to disable the installation of Microsoft C++ redistributable via the various games' ini files, so when they install, they would bypass this step. My computer won't let this program access some of the registry. I don't know why, and after looking through the registry, I can't find the things it is trying to change.

This is the error I get:


So, is there a way to disable the C++ install for Risen? I couldn't find anything on the ini file. If I let it go through, then the game will not start & tells me "side-by-side configuration is incorrect."

I paid $40 for this game, and I'd like to play it. I am peeved because Deep Silver forums are not accepting new registrants, so I can't ask my question there.

Thanks.
