Hi,
Ive been trying to install a game called Obscure, but when I run
Setup.exe, I get an error 1324, and the message "the path l?me contains
an invalid character" I assume this is because there is some file in
the archive that has an unrecognized letter/character from another
language. Might anyone have a solution to this problem? Thanks very
much!
