It didn't install, or you quit the installer at that point? It's standard practice for ther installer to give you the space requirements up front. Keep clicking "continue installation".
I gives me this message even before the installer starts.
Then click "OK", or whatever it says, and continue on with the installation. It doesn't just quit the installer, does it? It shouldn't, anyway.
I never opens the installer. It says for me to clear up the space and try again later.
What are you installing from, a CD/DVD or a disk image?
This doesn't make sense.
Are you telling it to do the install on your hard drive? It's not trying to install somewhere else, is it? Did you try a restart?
Im trying to install the a MacDVD and know I cant even find where the cd opens on my comp...
Then how are you installing it?
Do you mean you don't know how to eject the disk, or that you don't know how to insert it, or that you don't know where the desktop icon shows up? Sorry... just want to clarify.
Basically I put the disk in at first and clicked on the cd icon and when I clicked on the CIV4 it said I didnt have enough room for it to run. The somehow i moved the cd icon off the desktop and nothing comes u when I put the cd in again.
Insert the disk again, right click on the desktop, and choose "Keep Arranged By..." something to organize your icons - the disk icon should show up.
If something really odd has happened, try rebooting... although I can't think of what might cause that.
Didnt work. There are no icons on my desktop right now. Is there anywhere where I can put them back?
I think you'll need to consider rebooting. I find it very odd nothing happens when you insert the disk. So try a reboot and reinserting the disk, after setting the desktop to arrange icons by something.
Ok I managed to get the cd icon on the desktop. When I click on CIV4 it opens a folder that says 0 KB available. It has no install option but it does have a CIV4 icon that when clicked opens the error message.
I am completely baffled by this. Your call, JSW. I'll keep watching to see the outcome.
It sounds like you're trying to install Civ4 onto the disc, rather than the harddrive.
When you get the CD icon on the desktop, can you see any files inside? Is there a Civ4 icon? If so, drag that to your applications folder. Does it copy over?
Perhaps the installer is hidden, outside the window? Try selecting List View, and you may find the installer is there after all. It sounds as if you are trying to install it into itself: I get this message when I have too many saved games in my .dmg of Age of Empires, and I have to trash the surplus before I can open the game.
When I insert the disk, I get the CD icon:
When I double-click that, I get this:
When I drag the indicated folder to my disk (like the instructions indicate) and open it, I clearly see the Civ 4 game.
Edit: once you've dragged the folder onto your desktop (or wherever) and once it has finished copying (it takes a long time - over 2GB to copy), make sure you click the game icon in the folder on your hard drive and not the one from the CD (i.e., not the one in the pic above).
