    Weird installation problems

    Hello everyone!

    I bought the game today, and I was actually pretty excited to give it a spin, as I'm a big fan of the Unreal series. Sadly though, I'm unable to install it.

    When I try to run the installer simply by clicking on the DVD drive, I get this:

    Same situation when I run FrameworkCheck.exe directly.

    When I try to run 'Unreal Tournament 3' (I guess it's the MSI package), I get this error:
    http://xs121.xs.to/xs121/07476/screeny2.JPG

    Running SetupUT3.exe gives me this:
    http://xs121.xs.to/xs121/07476/screeny3.JPG

    So, I made a bit of research on the Internet, couldn't find anything useful though. I tried to fix it by editing the registry, reinstalling my DVD driver, reinstalling the .NET framework, as well as viewing logs with eventvwr.exe and trying to understand what's going on. Neither my DVD drive, nor the UT3 DVD can be damaged. I have never experienced anything like this before, neither on Windows, nor on Linux, and the .cab files on my UT3 DVD have valid data.

    Running Windows XP Professional SP2 with a "Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-111" and EU UT3 DVD, bought in Switzerland (I sure hope it isn't the censored German version :x , there's an 18+ on the cover though).

    Can someone help?

      That's strange. Have you tried replacing the DVD?

      Also copy the content from the DVD to your harddrive and try again.

        Nope, not yet. But the shop where I bought UT3 has, if I recall correctly, some "We don't accept any already opened media" policy, which is obviously pretty stupid. I could still try though.

        Also copy the content from the DVD to your harddrive and try again.
        Yep, tried that already. Didn't really work. I also tried to make an image of the DVD with a few programs (isobuster, k3b) and it seems that exactly those sectors where the executables are located are corrupted for some reason. Well, this means that I'll need to wait for the Linux port, as I can't do anything without working Windows binaries. Or does someone know some method or program, that can somehow help me in this situation?
