Usually let Autorun do it's job. If not, right click on the disc, open, and double click setup if Autorun fails.

when you place disc 2 in close down the autorun and then click ok should run

Should not be the case. I could install Dawn of War II on my laptop, and I had no problems before I started the game itself, and that crached the computer.

On the subject of switching disc, just put the 2nd disc in, and press OK. Should work, and if it does not, try again. And again.

I agree with deathnote is your pc powerful enough to play it?
doelago your laptop must reach the specific requiaments for dow 2 then it differs from pc to pc
