    today i got NFS Underground CDs (frm a friend), & when i tried to install that game, the AutoRun did not give any option INSTALL the game.

    instead, it gives only two options, Play & Uninstall (others are readme, check for updates...)
    when i select "Play" the autorun asks for Insert Disk Two to Play NFS Most Wanted [​IMG]
    When i select "Uninstall", the "uninstaller" pops up & asks whether to Uninstall NFS Most Wanted

    When i Insert the Disk 2, NFS Most Wanted runs automatically[​IMG]

    YES!!! NFS Most Wanted Runs.[​IMG] it does not show insert the correct disk...or something like that. (i own original NFS MW, but i'm using No-CD patch, savin my precious disk frm scratches :wink: )

    i previously had this game, but after getting NFS Most Wanted, i un-installed it.

    :arrow: What is going on here??? [​IMG]

    is this game worth playing again (after playin U2 & MW).

    the Registry is Clean (i use TuneUp Utilities 2007 & CCleaner).

    @vimal_mehrotra, they are Original. (but have scratches).

    btw, my problem's got nothing to do with Piracy/pirated disk. :D

    reason, i also tried with your view of "s/w frm friend" (pirated disk, just d/l), but same result, instead of NFS U installation, Most Wanted Runs. :D [​IMG]

    i'm not goin to try by Uninstalling NFS MW.

    btw what can be the reason behind this, has anyone else experienced this ODD situation. :D

    @Harvik780, i guess you are right,
    but NFS U2 installed without such prob. i used to play NFS U2 (installed along with MW) 7-8 months back. (never experienced such problm.)

    i agree with you on that, if one s/w is installed on two systems its same as doing piracy.
    but he had uninstalled that game long ago & he was clearing Junks from his room.

    you know, one man's junk is another man's treasure. :D (in this case NFS Underground) :D



    @shashank_digitreader, arre yaar tu kahe ko tension ho gaya. :confused:

    It might be that the autoplay.exe's registry entry points to the latest entry on the system, a.k.a MW? Should be something that's on the comp, discs not tailored to do that :D

    The original Underground and Most Wanted have exactly the same EXE name "speed.exe".

    Both can't be installed in the same machine.
    __________
    Are you using a backup-CD?

    Both Underground and U2 had crash to desktop problems. Reinstalling would fix some of those problems.

    What is the wording on the error message?

    Have you tried reinstalling the game?
