Default Medal of Honor Airborne / NVIDIA installation fail fix (PhysX)

I've been asked about this quite a few times lately, probably due to the price drop of the game. I thought I'd post the details here.


If you have an NVIDIA graphics card and you are installing Medal of Honor Airborne, the game will want to install AGEIA PhysX into your system's display drivers. If however your current NVIDIA graphics drivers have a later version of PhysX then you may find the install will abort very soon after entering the game's Serial Number.

PhysX is a physics engine that can utilise GPU acceleration to provide real-time physics effects. Shortly after MOH-A was released, NVIDIA accquired AGEIA (the inventors of PhysX) and intergrated PhysX into their drivers. Since this acquisition there have been a number of updated software versions, now called NVIDIA PhysX instead of AGEIA PhysX. Unfortionately this has caused an issue with the MOH-A game wanting to install a version of AGEIA PhysX (v7.07.09) which causes the aborting of the actual game install if the client has a late enough version of PhysX already installed in their system. Luckily there is a simple fix for this issue!


What version of PhysX do i have?

-click the NVIDIA symbol in your system tray (NVIDIA Settings)
-select NVIDIA Contol Panel (this is also available in the computer's control panel)
-click System Information (bottom left of NVIDIA Contol Panel)
-select Components tab



If your version of PhysX is later than v7.07.09 and you're getting this installation fail issue then follow these steps:

• remove PhysX (Strat - Control Panel - Add or Remove Programs - NVIDIA PhysX v...)
• install Medal of Honor Airborne
• patch Medal of Honor Airborne to v1.3, links - here -
• update NVIDIA PhysX - http://nvidia.com/object/nvidia_physx - Select PhysX System Software


I can confirm that updating to NVIDIA PhysX v8.10.13 allows you to play MOH-A (but not install!)




Medal of Honor Airborne is great (patched)... better than CoD World at War in my opinion.
I highly recommend this game! There's not much going on with the multiplay but the singleplayer game is awesome!
The stats setup is also very good and well thought out and adds to the re-play value.

It's cheap now-a-days so go get it!

Smile Fix for MoH Airborne installation issues

When MoHA installs it commonly fails for two reasons:

1. Your PhysX drivers are newer than the 2007 ones on the game DVD
2. Windows Firewall (aka ICS) isn't running (or isn't present)

The EA installer just drops you back to the desktop, without a error message.

I created fixes so you can install :
- without touching your current Nvidia/PhysX drivers
- without the Windows Firewall running or even installed

Help yourself at:
MoHA_install_fix.rar

Enjoy.

There's now another way to bypass this issue..
Medal of Honor: Airborne on Steam

A great price and you don't need a disc in your drive!

Sory to resurrect this thread, but just wanted to say thank you for all the info. Just picked up a copy of MoH:A for 4 & was ready to bin it when it wouldn't instal until I found this thread..
