Multiple problems with HoMM V & expansions
A few years ago I bought Heroes Of Might And Magic Complete Collection (the one in the big white box). I played the game since then on a regular basis and kept the game installed. However, a few months ago I had to uninstall all HoMM V games to free up some space (to install HoMM VI). This was also my first time uninstalling HoMM V since I usually reinstall Windows without uninstalling to many apps before (unless I have to save my license key & registration). At that time I was running Windows 7 Professional x64, all updates installed. The uninstalling process took less than 5 seconds and that seamed really weird. Right now I tried to reinstall HoMM V but it said it is already installed. I manually looked for related reg keys and deleted 'em all and managed to install all 3 games. However, after installation process ended (after pressing Finish ****on), instead of closing InstallShield, the process hanged and after 20 minutes of waiting I stopped the process. This happened with all 3 games. Also, this happened before, right after switching from XP x86 to 7 x64. After I installed the games I tried updating HoMM V (1.5 installed) and Tribes of the East (3.0 installed). The AutoUpdater utility downloaded the patc, the setup file and (technically) updated the game. However, the H5_Game.exe file remained the same and the game version, as it is displayed in the game menu screen, remained unchanged(1.50 & 3.0). I tried updating the game again but the updater says the game is already up to date. I also downloaded the patches manually (EU version) and tried updating manually but again, the setup says the game is already up to date. Any ideas on how to fix this? I searched on many forums & websites, including celestialheaven, nothing helps.
