    The game should still work, with 98%.. but windows automatically deletes the game folder after a minute or two .. I can play the game , if i click it fast, but it has problems, cause the files are still deleted. any help people?

    windows deletes it because the game won't fully work at 98%, and if the installer stops then the install service automatically deletes everything so that it doesn't conflict if you try and install it again.

    I had kingpin installed no your better off trying to find out what might be causing the install to die then how to stop windows from deleting the files. sorry man.

    I had a similar problem with the game "outcast" in win 98 would get to 100% then while it was "finishing up" it would delete everything and lead me back to the desktop without a trace of install.....

    Sadly I had to use brute force to get it to install...i.e break into the install at 99% ctrl/alt/del and check everything was there....luckily this worked....could give it a go if your desparate...

    and believe there are other ways of aborting an install but they involve more physical contact with your pc...thats another story!
