OK, so I'm in the middle of installing and it just "finishes" out of the blue. No message or anything, just a box that says it's finished installing and I can click finish. This sounds odd to me because the progress bar was only half done.
I look in the start menu. No shortcuts at all.
I look on the C drive and in program files. No files ANYWHERE for the game. I do a full HDD search for "Unreal." The only thing that shows up is a folder in my documents for Unreal Tournament 3. No other files anywhere on my HDD.
I then attempt to install again. Bringing up the original autorun menu gives me "Launch UT3" which does nothing at all. I click it and nothing happens. Uninstall UT3 gives me an error. Won't uninstall.
I go to the CD directory and double click SetupUT3.exe. It acts like it's installing but brings me to a prompt that asks me if I'm sure I want to uninstall this program and all of its features. Regardless of whether I click no or yes it gives me an error about this only being possible on products that are already installed.
So, i can't uninstall, I can't reinstall, there are NO game files at all, I've tried deleting the UT3 folder in my documents, makes no difference, what in the HECK is going on here?
How can I force a full reinstall? This is utterly ridiculous.
