I'm trying to install Half-Life on my (newly) XP'd machine. Despite trying it from Administrator, from hard-drive, etc. the install always fails with

ISSET_SE caused an Illegal Instruction in module SETUP.EXE at 0001:2CB4

This is the original Half-Life (1.01 was it?) CD. Any clues would be greatly appreciated!

Installs fine on my XP Pro system. Did you do a upgrade or a clean install? If you did a upgrade I bet thats your problem. Try doing a clean install of XP (delete the windows and program files directory's) that way there's no old windows registry or .ini settings messing with your system.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
