    Not enough disk space message while installing TRL

    Hi,
    I tried to install TRL, despite of having 14 GB free disk space, it keeps showing error message " Not enough disk space required to install TRL".
    Then installation gets cancelled.
    Did anybody encounter such problem??
    Could anybody help me with this please

    Thanks

    MY PC
    256 mb ram
    ATI radeon 200 mb
    PIV 2.93 GHZ

    Maybe you are using (or someone configured) your hdd to use virtual memory so much that you need more space.

    Try to defrag your hdd.

    Check that you really have 14Gb free disk space and nor 14Mb

    I get that stupid message a lot of times when I am installing things. I blame Microsoft's new Install Shield. It seems to fail to see the massive amount of free space I have on the drives in question. The only thing that I have been able to do about it is edit the registry, and edit it back when I am done installing.

    I'd tell you how, but I have forgotten how to exactly at the moment.

    [EDIT] ~~ I found this for another game, and it works for all the ones I needed it for:

    Install Error - Not Enough Disk Space - Solution
    Hello,
    Apparently if you install Dreamfall, and if the drive of your default install directory (usually like c:\program files\) does not have 7 gigs free, it will not even let you get to the screen where you can choose a different drive/partition.

    This is pretty annoying, and backwards, since it should let you choose a drive, before it checks to see if there is enough space.
    Here is how you can change your default windows install directory to allow it to install your game.

    Go to Start -> Run:
    Type RegEdit


    Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

    On the right side is something called: ProgramFilesDir

    ***Write down the current path of the ProgramFilesDir, you'll need to change it back after install***

    Change this value to a drive that contains 7+ gigs of space

    Install Dreamfall

    ***Go back into the Registry, to ProgramFilesDir, and change it's value back to what it originally was.***

    Don’t mess up your registry by doing anything else.

    -Dan

    I hope this helps you too.

    Question

    Are you trying to install the game on a different hdd than the installer suggests?

    Yes, I know, that's how it was for me too with other games, the installer will show you a harddrive, any that you want to install to, it's just that the installer says the drive has no room on it, regardless of how many gigs free you actually have.

    The only solution I found was what I quoted above.
    Edit the registry, install the game, edit the registry back.

    Ignore the fact that Dreamfall is the game being discussed in the quote and the problem is they can't even get to the change harddrive option, the fix is the same.

    ***Go back into the Registry, to ProgramFilesDir, and change it's value back to what it originally was.***


    And, as they say in Tech Support, "that should work!"

    Still no help
    Installation is just not getting started, Saying "not enough disk space".
    Its frustrating.
    I think I'll have to clear the C drive data and then try.
    Still hoping for help from you guys
