Borderlands is basically a shooter that combines elements of HL2, XIII and Diablo. It’s using the cell-shading technology that creates dark black “ink” outlines and contour lines. You can gain experience points and collect valuable items on your way through the borderlands.

Borderlands Installation on Windows 7

Borderlands install error: “Installation ended prematurely because of an error.”

If you can’t properly install Borderlands on Windows 7, you might want to try this fix.

Open cmd.exe (Start -> enter cmd.exe into the search field) and enter the following line:

msiexec /i f:\setup.msi /qb

Make sure to change “f:” to your DVD drive or wherever your setup.msi is currently located.

What is it doing? Basically it will run the installer with a basic user interface /qb and launch a “normal installation” (/i). Therefore you will not see any graphical user interface, it will simply copy the files onto your PC.

Borderlands Performance Tweaks / Windows 7 Crash

Borderlands has quite a few problems. Unfortunately, people with ATI graphic cards experience a lot of problems. Owners of a HD5770 may experience more problems than others. Also gamers on Windows 7 have to deal with more crashes than others.Here are some possible fixes that might help you:

Rename Borderlands .exe
If you are experiencing a low frame rate although your graphic card is pretty good, you might want to try to rename the .exe file of the game to something else. Sidenote: Only do this if you have the retail edition of the game and not the Steam-edition.

If you are on Steam: Get a NOCD version of the .exe and just make a shortcut directly to that to launch. This is obviously not allowed, but if you bought the game on Steam and it doesn’t work, I don’t see a reason why you should not do it.

Re-Install ATI drivers
To boost your performance you have to re-install your ATI drivers. Important: Do *NOT* reboot after installing them. When you do it won’t work. You have to do that every time you want to play Borderlands, so I suggest to not shut down your PC for a while.
