    Can't Install Invisible War!

    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?

    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.....
