  • If above is not the case with you, then check whether the iso image of the game s working. And if its not then download the new iso image from the official website of the game and install it. Note that before installing the game next time, wipe off the data from the previous installation completely otherwise you get errors.
  • Alternatively, the installation might be blocking due to the antivirus software installed in the system. Antivirus such as Norton stop the new gaming software from being installed. To fix that you can turn your antivirus software during the time of installation of your game and then turn it on later. You can do the same by going into the settings of your antivirus software and turn off the toggle button.
  • Sometimes the programs running in the background also hamper the installation. Make sure to stop all the unwanted programs running in the background.
