Hi! Does anyone have any idea why RCT2 will not install on my new machine? I'm running Win7 SP1 and have a relatively newer machine. I can give more specs if necessary.

The Game you have, Is it Boxed Version or Steam Version?

Try enabling Windows XP Compatibility mode and allow it to run as Administrator. I've had both the Steam version and the original boxed version install just fine on Windows 7 and 8.

this will work once the Game is INSTALLED, they way i read the post, he cant actually get the game to install in the first place, hence why i asked is Steam or disk, as the disk could have crapped out.

Lack of administrator privileges for the installer EXE will also cause it not to install.

I never had any trouble with installing or playing RCT1 RCT2 on Win Vista, 7, or even 8 on 64bit.
If you have trouble just use compatibility change it to Windows XP Service Pack 3
