Disc 2 is the installation disc for Windows 7 64-bit.
I have tried disk 2, which I know is the 64 bit instasllation disc but it wont load.2
I wa wondering if there is an install disc foor APE10 64/ My cd//DVD works perfectly on all other dissc. I believe , possibly, that APE10 looks for any evidence of any previous installations of APE/10 and therefore does not read or installl APE10/64.
Thankyou for your help. John
When you insert that Disc 2, into the multi-drive, and look at it with Windows Explorer (or Finder on a Mac), do you see all of the files and folders? If the computer will not correctly read that disc, it might be damaged.
In some cases of minor damage, users have been able to use a burning/copying utility, like ImgBurn to Copy that damaged DVD to a new, blank one, and have gotten that Copy to function, properly. If the damage is great, then there will be a problem. Adobe has a "replacement disc" policy, BUT that is usually only for the latest version, i.e. PrE 11 in this case.
Thank you for the info. I solved the problem by washing the disk and it mworked fine.
Good news, and thanks for posting what worked for you.
As you had the original installation (though the C:\ changed to D:\), I would guess that the Registry links were just messed up.
