There's a folder under C:\Windows called System32. If you delete that folder, it should fix any issues.

This doesnt sound like your using the proper halo CE installer. Did you download Custom Edition from this site? if you didnt, please do so.

yes I downloaded halo ce from this web site and what is really messed up is that halo combat evolved wont install also,same problem.
Both games will install on my old acer 5670 running xp pro.(bad battery and the video is slow).
--MS helped me befor getting the halo programs to work with win7 and now MS wont help because win8 is the now OS.Both games wont install on win8 and MS is not shure how to fix it.
--I would put winxp on the 64bit dual core,but that's a no-go.

did you try and run the installer as admin and try compatability mode.

Might as well start out simple.....: Have you right-clicked the installer to run it as an admin?

You don't have permissions to write to the install folders. You need to install the program with administrator privileges. You can either logon ad admin or run the program as admin and approve it.

My broken glasses took me away from the computer screen.now I can read.
I signed off and on a few times as administrator and the install problem is still there.
I signed on as guess and the problem is still there.
I changed memory,installed a new hard drive,and installed WIN7 and the problem is still there.
I have installed WIN8 and the problem is still there.
I have turned off shared files and the problem is still there.
----Has any other earthlings have the same problem in installing HALO CE and HALO COMBAT EVOLVED?
----MICROSOFT has helped me befor to get both games running with a ASUS G50VT,but now no help because of the outdated issue.
