Has anyone had any trouble with the demo installer?
I get the following on running the installer after a clean start...

Setup has experienced an error.
Please do the following:
Close any running programs
Empty your temporary folder
Check your internet connection (Internet-based Setups)
Then try to run the Setup again.
Error code: -6002

I have emptied my temp folder, and have tried running it with my internet connection up, and no programs are running.
I've just spent a day downloading this because it wasn't available on the UK website.
It really hurts when, after all that, the demo won't even install.

I am using Windows XP Home on the following system spec:
Athlon XP 3000+
NVidia NForce2 mobo (AOpen AK79D-400Max), using onboard Audio
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro
I have 1.76 Gb free on my C drive.

Running the installation with Windows in Safe Mode makes no difference.

I'll try getting the latest drivers as I haven't done that for a while, but any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I'd say it sounds to me like the file got corrupted during the download somehow (ouch).

My advice would be to wait for a UK site to host the demo...though I know it'll be painful to do so.

Of course, you could probably order a copy of the full game from Ebay or elsewhere. Dunno if you want to if the demo won't install, though.
