    Follow
    [EN] "Please insert the CD" error: Veuillez inserer votre CD RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 dans le lecteur suivant

    Note :Screenshots are in French but you should understand the explanations.

    If at launch you see a window asking you to insert the CD of the game, don't panic, just close the window, I'll explain how to solve this problem.

    Info : The installation of the game provided by Steam is incomplete, so we'll fix the game in a very simple way.

    First, make a right click on RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 in your game library and click on Properties .



    Click then on the Local Files tab and click on Browse Local Files.




    Once the window which contain the game is open, go into the Install folder and start setup.exe.


    Once the installer starts, click on "I accept the terms of the license agreement" and click on Next.
    Then you have to change the installation location by choosing the actual location where the game is installed, as shown in the image below:



    Click then on Next to start the installation. At one time, the installation offers to you to register your product on the Atari website. Just click on Close and on Never register.

    Once the installation is completed, return on the property window of the game and click this time on Verify integrity of game cache.



    Info for non-english user : In fact, Steam will now re-install the original game file because the installer has installed missing files, but it has mostly installed the game program in English. The verification cache allows you to put the game program in your language.

    Once verification is completed, Steam will download some missing files.



    Now your game is ready!
