Half Life using Point to Play (cedega)


I just started using Transgaming's Point to Play GUI for Cedega. Their web site says that Half Life works perfectly using this program, so I went out and bought Half Life Platinum Edition, which includes the original game, Counter Strike, Blue Shift, Opposing Forces, and Team Fortress. I tried installing the original game, but the install hangs while the install wizard is being set up.
Anyone know why this may be occurring, and how to fix it? (I posted a support request at the Transgaming site, but have gotten no response)
Thanks

Download the Steam Installer from http://www.steampowered.com/.

It will run under Cedega and install your games, and also allow you to play online with their newer servers.

I downloaded Steam. However, I'm not sure I understand how this works. Do I have to play these games online?

Steam is Valve's answer to being able to have your games updated without having to download patches and other updates. I personally like the idea but hate the program. No you do not have to play these games online. The GUI for it pops up with all your Valve games ina list and you double click the one that you want to play and BAM, there you go.

You can't play the single player of half life through steam as far as I know. At least not offline.

chilehead, how long after the hang have you waited? It takes a little while after the wizard setup has reached 100% for it to actually run (sometimes as long as ten seconds).

You can try just running "cedega setup.exe" from the console. That way you'll see any errors that occur.

I waited for at least 10 minutes, maybe longer. I'll try running cedega setup.exe through the console and see what happens.
Thanks
