I recently decided to collect all of the BG games and just purchased Baldur's Gate I from the interplay store. I got it, with a few scraches on CD one (because of the big cardboard sleeve), which made me kinda angry, but I thought it would still work, so I popped in the CD. The autoplay came up, and I hit install. After about 30 seconds of nothing, an error popped up

"Windows cannot run 16-bit application
insufficient memory, please exit windows programs that are open and try again"


Well, it's something like that. Pretty much, this shouldn't be happening. I have:

2.4 Ghz Intel
ATI radeon 9800
512 DDR 333 ram
Windows 2000 service pack 4

Now, I thought it was the scratched up CD, but I don't really think it would do that error. I also thought my computer might be too strong, but I DON'T really know. Someone told me it was windows 2000, but I got another reply saying that another person was running it fine on windows 2000, so I have no clue. Maybe the CD is actually bad and I should sent it back and exchange it? I'm not sure...

Some dude told me on another board to copy all of the CD's content to one directory and try installing it that way, I haven't tried that yet, but I need ta [img]smile.gif[/img]


Also, I was wanting to convert all the songs from BG and BGII games into mp3s. I was wondering if I could get a program to rip them from the BG CDs (and maybe even icewind dale CDs). I was also wondering if there was some easy way to make backups of the games, without copying CD for CD, some way to scrunch it down into just 2 or 3 CDs that would actually work?


Thanks in advance [img]smile.gif[/img]

that means you are rinning to many applications/programs. Close a couple of them or as much as possible and then try again.

For the program try http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc.htm its what i use and its the fastest ripper in the world.

Thanks for the reply. I tried your advice and it still didn't seem to work . I closed down and disabled all of norton, disconnected from the internet, closed EVERYTHING that I could, and it still had the error...
