Thanks, I'll try running it again as an administrator and turning off antivirus. Hopefully it will not do the "the witcher 2 has stopped working. checking for a solutin" thing at the end of installation this time.. :/

If it says the witcher 2 has stopped working at the end wait about 20 minutes before force closing it. Just to observe it. It may stop hanging and come back. As long as the option is there "Wait for the program to respond" if it straight up stops working then yeah that is bad.

the launcher goes away and it only gives the option to close the window, but i suppose I could try to wait to see if it comes back

it gives me the shortcut to run the game but gives me a message when I try to click it- "this application has failed to start because mfc100u.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."
any ideas what this means or how I can put that missing thing in?

To be a little more specific.

"Problem #5: The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Error: "mfc100u.dll was not found"

This is an annoying problem that a lot of The Withcer 2 users experience. At an installation attempt a message appears:

“Launcher.exe – system error: This application failed to start because mfc100u.dll was not found. Reinstalling might help fix this problem.”

Possible Solution: Try installing the 32-bit version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 packet may solve the problem. The packet’s installer – a file named vcredist_x86.exe – can be found on the “Game – disk 2? CD"


Hope that helps

does this seriously work.

I can't install my witcher 2 either..........it just sits on cookedpc forever and nothing happens..........pissing me off.
i'll see if i can try this tonight.

That's what i hate about pc............you have to install the game before you play and your pc has to meet all sorts of settings and updates..............as for consoles,..........just put the stupid disk in and it runs..........frustrating

don't know how to get around it..............why hasn't the witcher group come up with an easy solution............you'd think they'd be aware of this problem by now............they need to pinpoint the problems and help us out............very dissappointed with this crap

I have been installing and reinstalling this game since 1 AM till now 4:52AM and I am going crazy.

I can run Dragon Age 2 on max on my computer and I can't even install this game. Urgh.
I think I am going to pull out all my hair >_<

I managed to install the game after numerous tries (Uninstalling and then installing again).

Lucky for my boyfriend he's still going to wake up and see me with my shampoo ad worthy long hair.
