I got DX:IW home and tried to install, but I got errors saying something like "data#.cab is corrupt on this medium, please contact vendor." I tried retrying, but it kept giving the same error. I tried ignoring the files and writing down their names for later, but when it was done installing, I got a blue screen error saying my system had a serious error and I had to restart. I tried running IW after the restart, and it should have worked because the missing files were just a few maps and one movie, but I got an error and it closed. I tried installing on two different drives, one with DMA on and one with DMA off. I am running Windows XP Pro. Any ideas?

Looks like their cd-replicator may have messed up big time. I can't install either (slightly different error).

My cd (only one came in the box) has exactly 4 files on it:
data3.cab
ion launcher.exe
readme.rft
Uninstall Deus Ex - Invisible War shortcut

Ion launcher says "Failed to start executable d:\DX2.exe"
Uninstall shortcut says link not found.

Tried in both my cd drive and dvd drive, same errors.

Sounds like we're screwed?

Returned it to the store, and got a new one... one with 2 cd's this time :p

I reeived similar errors. It seemed to say that the cab file was different than what the installer script was expecting. I just told it to ignore the errors and continue.

It installed and is playable, however, I am having sound problems.

I hope DeusEx2 doesn't turn out to be a Tribes2.....
