Just went out today to buy this game, had the creature creator trial and loved it so I forced myself to splash out the money for it.

Anyhow, I was going through the installation process and got to the terms of use, scrolled through the agreement and clicked I agree then clicked next.

An error then popped up saying, - An error has occurred. Setup cannot be completed and will now stop.

This is really bugging for me and my little bro,

So if anyone know's any solutions to this, thanks :D

try copying all t he files from the disc to ure HDD and inswtalling it from there.

installation hasnt been smooth for me either. im on attempt 2 now though and it seems to be working. *crosses fingers* u might get more info over at the EA spore forums.

I just bought Spore, but whenever I run the game on my PC it Freezes during creature creation and when an information box pops up, after pressing ctrl + alt + del the game will run ok until the next comes up. It will run ok during the cell stage but when i evolve its hopeless the screen just freezes before i move.

I've tried to update my driver, as i have read this has helped with others, but can't find an update online for my driver!!!

Hp pavilion dv9000

Windows Vista home Premimum 32

nvidia Geforce Go 7600

Can anyone help?

Many Thanks

Since you are using Vista, have you tried running the game as admin? Whenever I encounter strange problems running a game, I run it in admin mode and that usually fixes the issue. Just right click the game icon and choose "Run as Administrator".

If you're using vista, always run installations as admin. Right click and choose "Run as Administrator" if you aren't using Vista, I'm not quite sure. Try googling the error.
