    IIRC, you can tell it to install to a non-RTW folder (ie: c:/.../desktop/babagadoosh) and manually copy the files over.

    Someone more knowledgeable than I will have to confirm/deny this.

    Make certain your installation is properly patched to 1.5. You do this by running your installation and on the game setup screen it needs to say 1.5 on the top right hand corner, IIRC. If it doesn't say this then your not properly patched. If your patched correctly, make certain your pointing the installer to the proper directory, where the main RTW installation is located. The installer will do the rest.

    Since you have the gold edition, you don't need to patch anything. It's already at 1.5/1.6. So all you need to do is download EB, double click the downloaded file, direct the address to install to .../Rome - Total War and you're done.

    RTW. It'll be the same folder you can locate the file RomeTW.exe in.
    You'd probably be better off making a new RTW install outside of the Users folder or Program Files though (something like C:\Games\RTW should be fine).

    Are you directing the installer to the proper directory? I'm guessing the installer cannot find the correct core files required by the game because you didn't direct the address correctly.

    what you need to do is copy the link of the ROME TOTAL WAR game .
    when you see the folders from the game called DATA . . . PREFERENCES . . . LOGS . . . . MILES . . . SAVES and the RTW logo the red one COPY THE LINK IN THE TOP , dont go anywhere ... JUST COPY THAT LINK UPTHERE =)and pass it to where the installer says . or asks you for where you want to install the EB game mod .

    if that is what is stopping you to play EB then ill be happy to have helped you install it right cuz i had the same problem and was mad as Hell :P . if not then someone correct me =)

    If you've done everything right and it still won't install perhaps the install itself is corrupted? Have you tried redownloading at all?

    I have a problem understanding exactly what you mean. But I think you will be helped on your other machine by:

    * Clearing up some space on your c: drive if you're low on it. If you have more than 3GB free hard disk space, you can forget this point.
    OR
    * Using 7-zip to unpack EB. You'll have to create the shortcut manually if you take this route.
