Hello,

I just recently received HoI for Christmas, and while trying to install it onto my laptop (Windows Vista OS), it reached 11% and then gave me the following error:

Component: Core files
File Group: Common
File: C:\Program Files\Paradox Entertainment\Hearts of Iron\gfx\interface\pics\bryhn_asbj?n_nor.bmp
Error: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax, is incorrect.

Can anyone help me with this? I'd really like to try the game.

Edit: My apologies - I have the HoI: Platinum Edition.

I'd try it on another PC, but it looks like the CD is faulty. If you get the same error, take it back to the shop and exchange it for another copy.
