    Hi
    I have a serious problem :) with the installation of Oblivion. Each time I try , I get a message like in the annex. I tried to install with xp compatibility mode, run as an administrator, change the InstalShield folder , even reinstalling the operating system - with no results. Could anyone help me how to install this game? I have a windows 8 64 bit.

    Im probably being stupid right now but since it mentions the lack of a fonts folder inside the "fake" Windows folder located in "C:\Documents and Settings\Your Username\Windows", could you try doing a copy & paste of "C:\Windows\Fonts"?
    The only other fix i see is for the developer to install a hotfix to help making a proper installer.

    Edit: Damn it, forgot Windows Vista and later changed its folder structure. :(
    It could be hidden inside "C:\Users\Your Username\AppData".
