Quake 2 Install Fix for Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1

A lot of people know that old games can be such a nuisance to install on newer versions of Windows.  Well a part of that line of old games comes that great classic we know Quake II.  Funny Quake 1 installs without any issues but do to compatibility problems Quake II can't.  Well there is only one simple way to solve this issue.

Step 1:  Open the Quake II disk in a new Window by right clicking.  After that the window should open now we have to find the games install folder.

Step 2: Drag the Data folder to any location on your computer as seen in the screenshot below.

You have now successfully installed Quake 2 without the use of its bug ridden setup file.  You can enjoy the full benefits of the game and even save and load without any issues.
