Default Installing Unreal Tournament 3

Every time I go to install Unreal Tournament 3, I get the following error:







When i cancel the installation, it tells me it received a fatal error '-1603.'

I have tried many a time, but to no avail. Next i'm going to try installing to my secondary hard drive, see if that helps a bit. Does anybody know wtf is going on? Help much appreciated :/

Sounds like a bad disk to me. Take it back and get a new one!

ps. Could also be your cd/dvd drive, so if you have an external dvd drive, or another computer try that.

But, i had successfully installed it on my older machine, which was running windows xp.

I doubt it's the drive, as i've used that to install Vista and several other programs with no problems.

Whatever it is, it's really starting to piss me off. I paid good money for this game, i want to f***ing play it.

Is there an installer I can download, or something?

Actually, what I would do with is is, make a nice disk image in Nero, or CDR-Win. Or, copy all the files onto a blank disk, and install. Might need to get a crack for it from gamecopyworld though.

mmm, make your copying on a PC that can read it first LoL

well, the game is legal, i have my cd key. So i'm downloading an image file torrent, which should be perfectly legal considering i own a purchased copy of the game. I just dont want to wait to get new drives.
