    update on my situation:

    i finally got it to install on minimum (i keep getting that move data error when i try full and typical installation)...everything works fine EXCEPT for hot pursuit mode!!! i dont get it!! it gets stuck on the loading screen (with the white loading bar and map)...then it exits out by itself and says it found some exception!!!!!!

    I NEED SOME SERIOUS HELP!!! PURSUIT MODE IS GREAT AND I WOULD EXTREMELY APPRECIATE ANY HELP THAT U CAN GIVE ME!!!

    High Stakes shouln't need compatibility mode in XP. It installed fine for me, although I did have a problem getting it to run in DirectX. For that, all I needed to do was run the game once in software mode, then run the 3d setup again, then it seemed to work.

    It doesnt seem like this is the case with the original poster though.

    It sounds like a video driver to me, or possibly a scratched CD, since he said he had problems installing it.

    Like I said, we need more info on his system...

    Sounds to me that because you had to install minimum, and because of move data errors, that you may have CD or CD-reader proplems.
    If you have either multiple CD-readers, or perhaps a CD-reader and CD-Writer, try swapping about a bit. Sorry I could'nt have been more help
