    First of all welcome to the forum.

    I think your problem is that the RTW install is not a working copy. When I installed RSII over a RTW install that didn't have the Miles folder I got the same error.

    Does the contents of the install folder look similar to this:

    Make sure that the mss32.dll file is there as well - it's something to do with the Miles Sound system that RTW uses.

    We have found the files "Temp", "Custom" and the two TGA in C:\Users\...\Local\VirtualStore\Activision. I sent to him the file "Miles". The game currently launched correctly !

    I don't know where is localized the file "Miles" on his computer.

    The reason we suggested to install to a folder other that c:\program files (x86) and to switch off UAC were to avoid problems such as this.
