I have a Dell Studio laptop with Intel Core 2 Duo 2.8 GHz processor, 4 GB Ram, 512 MB ATI Raedon Graphics Card and 500 GB HDD with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. I was checking my shelf for old games and came across Quake 3 Arena. Though its more than a decade old now, I'm still a big fan.
I tried installing this game by double-clicking the setup.exe file but nothing happens. I can see that the process is listed in the processes tab of task manager but in vain. I don't see anything happening.
Assuming that this could be because I'm installing an old game on a 64-bit machine, I tried to change the compatibility to Windows XP Service Pack 3/Service Pack 2. Nothing seems to help.
Has anyone encountered this problem before?
