Sounds alot to me like your disc may be scratched, And I heard something about a data cache being full...Snipe will come charging in soon full bore with more questions for you so he can help you.

But if you read this b4 he comes, make sure you uninstall the game completely before trying to reinstall.

You might try one more thing, copy the ENTIRE CD to your HD and install if from there, you will still need to have the CD in when you play (if you're a law abiding citezen, which I am not.) But installing it from your HD may smooth out whatever problem I think you CD ROM drive is having, what kind of CD ROM drive and speed is it anyway, cuz ive seen things like this b4 and i got a new CD drive and it worked great. -just tryin to help /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

EDIT: When I say "HD", that is an acronym for Hard Drive.

To HondaMXer13,

DOW_Silver has giving you some good help and I will continue by adding please follow the below and get back to us if further problems arise.

When installing patches disable your anti virus software and leave disabled until all disks are installed. Below is the correct way to uninstall GR. At the bottom of the page follow the Gold Edition install sequence. Download the patches from the link I have supplied.

Patch v1.3, v1.4 http://www.ghostrecon.com/patch.php?param=pcgr

<font color="#00FF00">GR Uninstall</font>

First of go to your add/remove program and uninstall GR/UBI and then follow below and delete the GR/UBI folders

1-start/all programs/accessories/windows explorer/my computer/local disk(c)/program files/red storm entertainment

2-start/all programs/accessories/windows explorer/my computer/local disk(c)/program files/UBI.com

To start from scratch uninstall all of GR and UBI and at your own risk do this but first back it up.

(1) start/run and type this: regedit and press ok

Up the top click file/export and on the pop up window down the bottom where it says (save as type) click the drop down arrow and click on ALL FILES. Then select your location and save.

repeat step (1)

1- hkey_current_user/software look for any red storm entertainment folders and delete along with any UBI soft folders

now do this:

2- hkey_local_machine/software look for red storm entertainment folders and delete along with any UBI soft and UBI soft entertainment folders and delete

now do this:

3- hkey_LocalMachine/ software/ Microsoft/ windows/ current version/ uninstall directory there should be a folder here named "{D89EF3B3-6F17-4665-B7A9-A4235A6DC787}" with some Ghost Recon info in it so delete only the ghost recon related info.


Now reinstall GR/DS/IT



If you crash during an install or uninstall (usually caused by installing without enough disk space or an interruption from anti-virus software), and the installer will not let you uninstall GR, taking the following steps should allow you to reinstall:

----------------------------------------------
DELETE THE FOLLOWING FILES:

The directory you installed to. The default is c:\program files\red storm entertainment\ghost recon\

The following directory is usually on your c: drive:
c:\program files\Installshield Installation Information\D89EF3B3-4665-B7A9-A4235A6DC787\

----------------------------------------------
DELETE ONLY THE CONTENTS OF THESE DIRECTORIES, NOT THE DIRECTORIES THEMSELVES:
These are usually on your c: drive:
Windows 9X/ME:
c:\temp or c:\windows\temp

Windows 2000 or XP:
c:\Documents and Settings\\Temp\D89EF3B3-4665-B7A9

- Try the install again. If it still doesn't work:

----------------------------------------------
DELETE THE FOLLOWING REG KEYS AND CONTENTS:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\CurrentVersi on\AppPaths\GhostRecon.exe

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsft\CurrentVersio n\Uninstall\D89EF3B3-4665-B7A9-A4235A6DC787

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\applications\GhostRecon.exe

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Red Storm Entertainment\Ghost Recon

----------------------------------------------
DELETE THE FOLLOWING FILES:

The directory you installed to. The default is c:\program files\red storm entertainment\ghost recon\

The following directory is usually on your c: drive:
c:\program files\Installshield Installation Information\D89EF3B3-4665-B7A9-A4235A6DC787\

----------------------------------------------
DELETE ONLY THE CONTENTS OF THESE DIRECTORIES, NOT THE DIRECTORIES THEMSELVES:
These are usually on your c: drive:
Windows 9X/ME:
c:\temp or c:\windows\temp

Windows 2000 or XP:
c:\Documents and Settings\\Temp\D89EF3B3-4665-B7A9-A4235A6DC787\

Some people have reported this, so I'm putting it here

IF YOU GET THIS ERROR MESSAGE ON INSTALL:

Incompatible Version of the RPC Stub

------------------------------------------------------------

Cause
This error is caused by a DLL that was installed on the system, such as Oleaut32.dll, Olepro32.dll, Asycfilt.dll, Stdole2.tlb, or others that are not compatible with that system. For example, version 3.50 of Oleaut32.dll is installed and used only by Windows XP and so causes this error if it is installed on a machine running any other operating system.

------------------------------------------------------------

Resolution
The only way to avoid this error is to download and run the following executable that is provided by Microsoft.
http://download.microsoft.com/download/msninvestor/Patch/1.0/WIN98/EN-US/mcrepair.EXE

When you run this executable, when it prompts you whether you wish to overwrite Newer files, make sure to click YES for each file ( do not select "No" or "No to All" ).



<font color="#00FF00">Install Gold Edition Version</font>

Do this in this order and it should work:

Uninstall ghost recon and all folders/files associated with the game. -Restart computer.
Re-install Ghost recon.
Install 1.3 patch. - install 1.4 patch.
Then install Desert siege and Island thunder.
