I'm trying to install Civ4 on Windows Vista 32-bit. The version on the DVD is 1.00.00. When I run setup.exe and follow the prompts, the dialog with "Install for All Users" is greyed out.

How do I install for all users? This worked fine when the same machine was an XP machine.

    Are there multiple user accounts on the machine, if not then that is probably the reason it is grayed out.

    Yes, there are multiple user accounts on the machine. Even if there weren't, the installation process is different for a specific user installation; "Program Files" vs. "\Users\<username>\..."

I think the game had previously been installed for a specific user and then uninstalled.

I worked around the problem by creating a new administrator account and used that to install the game. With that account the checkbox to install for all users was enabled and the game installed just fine. Once I was done, I deleted the temporary account.

Thanks for all the input.

You might need to right click the installer exe and "Run As Administrator".

  • Already running as administrator. I have also tried running the installer in XP compatibility mode.
