Installation Problems

Like many of the later Sierra games, Torin's Passage has installation problems.

Problem - AutoRun Hangs:
When you first insert the CD, the AutoRun will start and seems to lockup.

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.)

Problem - System Test Crash:
The installer crashes when running the system test with either an integer divide by zero error or this error:

SETUP caused a General Protection Fault in
module _SETUP.EXE at 0001:9EE5.

Choose close. SETUP will close

You can't rerun the setup without ending the process with the Task Manager (Ctl+Alt+Delete) or by rebooting.

Skip the system test. You will still be able to install the game.

Problem - Invalid parameter - co80:
When installing the DOS version, this error message appears:

Invalid parameter - co80

This is just a parameter specified in "INSTALL.BAT" that does not work in XP, just ignore it, the game will install, anyway.
