Like many of the later Sierra games, Shivers has installation problems with the installer not fuctioning with faster PCs or under Windows XP. The game will install in Windows XP without trouble if you just avoid a couple of things.
It is just searching your system for a previous installation. You can safely quit the AutoRun and just open the CD to run the installer. (Right click on the AutoRun button on the task bar and choose Close or use Ctl+Alt+Delete to end task. You can also hold the shift key down when you insert the CD and hold it until the PC reads it.).
SETUP caused a General Protection Fault in
module _SETUP.EXE at 0004:6357.
Choose close. SETUP will close.
You can't rerun the setup without ending the process (Ctl+Alt+Delete) or rebooting.
Skip the system test. You will still be able to install the game.
To play�in full-screen mode you must change your display settings to 640x480.
If you want a title bar to be able to move the window, you must edit the RESOURCE.WIN file to change the line "titleBar=" value to TRUE.
