Hello. I ran into 2 problems when trying to install this and I found solutions for both of my problems. I hope these solutions help you guys as well!
Firstly, do not use Daemon tools. I couldn't mount CD2 and CD3 because of this program, so I instead used WinCDEmu ver. 4.1, which works better and can mount both of the discs.
The other problem I ran into was my Setup.exe wasn't launching after I closed out of it once. This is what I did to resolve the issue. I went under Setup.exe Properties, went over to compatibility, selected to run on Windows 98/ Windows Me and checked marked to run as an Administrator. Then it works.
For newbies who need more help for installing...
Mount Disc 1, run the setup.exe
The installation will get around 26% and then asks you to insert Disc 2. Unmount Disc 1 at this time and mount Disc 2 IN THE SAME DRIVE YOU MOUNTED DISC 1. Then once that installation reaches a certain percentage again, it will ask for Disc 3, which you, of course, unmount disc 2 and mount disc 3 on the same drive. Once that is done, it requires you to place disc 1 back in. Unmount disc 3 and mount disc 1 on the same drive. It will ask you if you want to install Direct X update, DO NOT install that update.
Lastly, this PC port is very buggy, so I recommended using the Silent Hill 2 Enchantment fan patch. This fixes everything that is wrong with this port. There is a good YouTube video on how to install it if you need help.
I hope this helps :)

A few months ago, I was able to install the game, but I had the popular "please insert disc 1" problem. I couldn't find that could fix it. I uninstalled the game. Though now, when I open it, and mount the disc, the autorun application dosen't work now. I have no clue what the hell is happening. I've already tried to redownload the ISOs but it's still the same.

Damn guys, using WinISO I can't mount CD2 and CD3 versions :(
Anyone know how to solve this?

If you are getting the problem where the setup asks for Disk 1 for DirectX and then crashes, you can try doing this. Install the game normally like you usually do. When the setup finishes 100% and the setup asks for Disk 1, go to task manager and kill the process of the setup. This will end the setup but your game that has already been installed will not be deleted.
Hope it helps :)

It won't let me run the game. It says it requires a DirectX update and CD1 and that I don't have either of these things. I really want this game so this just blows tbh.

I should have known better than to trust something literally named Daemon Tool. Shit tried to install adware on my computer. If some naive fool like me comes across this, if you're gonna use Daemon Tool, be ready to hunt down the adware that comes with it.

So I mounted all the ISO's and installed them (anyone getting "ISO corrupt" just use Daemon to mount). DirX was installed and it's still asking for disk one. Anyone know how to get past that?

I installed Dirext X 8.1. Installation fails at that step every time anyways.

If you are installing with daemon tool, after having mounted the first dick you simply have to unmount CD1 and mount CD2, you simply do the same thing with CD3 and the installation should be finished. You also need to make sure to mount on the same drive or else it will not work.

I'm pretty new to this, so forgive me if I'm missing something obvious, but when I try to install the game it asks me to "please insert Disk 2 with data3.cab" and I have no idea what to do. I've downloaded the patches and I've found the Crack file but I'm not sure what to do with them

Need help with installation. Can anyone tell me a step by step guide to do it? Also, CD2 and 3 are corrupted.

For anyone having the "Insert CD1" problem. After installing the game open the CD1 folder in there you'll find a "Crack" folder. Copy whats inside the folder into the game directory. After that it should work.

I used magic iso to extract the files I suggest that instead of daemon tools

During install it asks for disc 2, I mount disc 2 and it says it can't find the file it's looking for. What's the deal? Anyone had this problem or gotten by it?

you need install the patches and select the option that install the video archives on the HD, it's working perfect here

Restless Dreams is what the Director's Cut is called on PC. It contains the additional scenario "Born From A Wish", where you control Maria from the game. Silent Hill 2 is a self-contained story with no connection to the other entries of the series and a very good starting point. Probably the best in the series.
