    Chessmaster installation problems on Windows 10

    I realize this has been visited several times, I have read through several of the helps on this forum and others. I have tried the fixes suggested to no avail.

    I have the original three discs, and when I insert disc 1, I right-click the setup.exe file and run as administrator. I go through a few clicks to accept terms, make sure direct x is unchecked etc. Once I click install, the status bar jumps quickly to about 25 % of the bar, the words above the bar say "removing applications". It never progresses beyond this point. It remains in this status while I listen to the disc spinning. After a while, i receive a 1603 error code--fatal installation. I would love to figure this out and be able to play again. Any help will be welcome.

    Thanks

    The fact that you're receiving a message about "removing applications" seems to indicate that you have the checkbox to install DirectX checked. Why else would it be trying to remove something if you hadn't selected to install it?

    Also, did you uncheck the box to install Adobe Reader?


    Anyway, try the install again with both checkboxes (Adobe Reader and DirectX) unselected. If that still doesn't work, let me know.

    Hi It does end up with completion up to disc 3, but fail to install as showing error 1625 by window. Even after repeating re installation same message appeared. Do you have any solution for that , Thanks.

    Is there any other message you're getting other than 'Error 1625'?

    Saying you "followed all the instructions" isn't really helpful in figuring out what your problem is.

    - Where did you get your copy of Chessmaster?

    - Did you remember to install as the Administator?

    - Did you install the version of DirectX that came with Chessmaster?

    - Did you install all the updates?

    Please answer these questions, and hopefully I can help.
