    Trying to slim down the installation. What Vanilla and Warlords files can safely be deleted? I only play BTS, so they don't need to work.

    BTS works without buying Warlords, so I thought I could just delete the entire warlords folder, but that didn't work.

    you need all Civ4 and all BtS and some Warlords - the bets way is to uninstall all following the below guide - then install only Vanilla and BtS - the BtS installer will install the Warlords files it needs :)



    install the most recent version of DirectX 9c from Microsoft



    then do the following for a clean reinstall:



    Uninstall and Reinstall Civ4 Warlords BtS :



    Try to follow this order when doing stuff:

    Use Control panel to uninstall Beyond the Sword, then Warlords, then Civ4

    Delete "...\documents and settings\<username>\my documents\my games\sid meier's civilization 4" manually

    Delete "...\documents and settings\<username>\my documents\my games\warlords" manually

    Delete "...\documents and settings\<username>\my documents\my games\beyond the sword" manually

    Delete "...\documents and settings\<username>\application data\my games\sid meier's civilization 4" manually

    Delete "...\documents and settings\<username>\application data\my games\warlords" manually

    Delete "...\documents and settings\<username>\application data\my games\beyond the sword" manually

    Delete "...\documents and settings\<username>\local settings\application data\my games\sid meier's civilization 4" manually

    Delete "...\documents and settings\<username>\local settings\application data\my games\warlords" manually

    Delete "...\documents and settings\<username>\local settings\application data\my games\beyond the sword" manually

    (note: application data is a hidden directory so you need to configure windows explorer to show hidden files, also these directories in application data are sometimes removed by the uninstall routine)

    Delete "...\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{CFBCE791-2D53-4FCE-B3FB-D6E01F4112E8}" (Civ4)

    Delete "...\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{3E4B349F-10B5-4586-9D99-489A90A8B228}" (Warlords)

    Delete "...\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{32E4F0D2-C135-475E-A841-1D59A0D22989}" (BtS)

    (note: InstallShield Installation Information is a hidden directory so you need to configure windows explorer to show hidden files).

    Install Civ4, immediately patch it to 1.61 (download it fresh from here)

    Install Warlords, immediately patch it to 2.08 (download it fresh from here)

    Install Beyond the Sword, immediately patch to 3.17 (download it fresh from here).
