How to fix common problems and errors in Game Installation


Today I am going to show you, how can you fix general and common errors you may get in installing your favorite games.

So let’s get started.

Major Reasons of Errors

There are 2 major reasons of getting annoying errors. These are:

  • Virus Errors
  • Downloading Errors

Here are the solutions:

1. Turn Off Anti-virus

Keep your anti-virus OFF before you start downloading it. This is because Anti-virus corrupts the setup of a game. Some of the game files are deleted by Anti-Virus. This is a false positive alert to you.

Because companies pay anti-virus companies to stop fulls (which are played without buying).

So don’t worry, just turn off all the anti-virus you have installed on your PC.

  1. Turn off Windows Defender from Control Panel.
  2. Turn off other anti-viruses like Avast, Avira or Mcafee, etc from Taskbar.

You must do these steps before downloading your game.

2. Use IDM Software For Download

  • Download games with IDM. This gives you fast speed and downloads files without any errors. It (IDM) also gives the ability to resume. Because the normal download is corrupt sometimes.
  • You can also use DownTheAll Addon for Mozilla, Chrome, and Opera. It also gives great speed with resume capability.

Extracting The Game Setup Files

The game setup file you have downloaded, it may compressed in .zip file or in .iso file. You must extract it in your computer before you can install.

ZIP File

  • You must Download and Install Winrar Sofwtare.
  • Right click on .zip file and choose “Extract Here“.

ISO Files

  • You must Download and Install UltraISO Software.
  • Right-click on setup .ISO file and choose the “Mount to Drive” option under the UltraISO option

DON’T Extract ISO Files. It may corrupt the setup files of your game.

Fixing Other Runtime Errors

Directx 9

Visual C++ Redist Packages (Install Every 32bit and 64bit Files from this Package).

Steam (Most of the games need to be played. Download it and install it now. Create a Free Account and keep your account logged in to Steam Software on your PC.).
