I have been playing a couple older games using dgvoodoo and have installed them twice in the past couple weeks. After some tinkering and getting one of the games (Madden 99) where I want, I decided to do a fresh install this morning. After un-installing however, windows does nothing when I try to run setup.exe or won't autorun from the disc. I get the blue pinwheel for a couple seconds then nothing...

I tried a few other disc based games and they work fine. Anyone else have this problem? Do I need to clear some files or settings? I installed this game just fine a week ago.

I found the solution! I noticed the "32-bit setup launcher" was sitting in task manager everytime I ran setup.exe. (about 10 of them at this point) and a simple google search turned this up on reddit. Turns out it was being held up by another task. I terminated it and the installation popped right up. Ugh after banging my head a against the wall all day....
