A huge deal? No. But really, really sloppy.
I'm not really in the know about this problem, but doesn't the UAC in Vista usually cause problems when installing software and needs disabling/run as administrator? If the installer crashes and doesn't fail gracefully, that's sloppy, but I don't know the specifics. But surely this has another reason than "zomg they obviously didn't test this before shipping!!!1"

That's a pretty damning statement.. care to back that up with some references?

Default Cant install mass effect 2

January 28th, 2010, 04:31
Ive bought the pc dvd and its installation runs as planned, however when it comes to asking for disk change it wont recognise that i have put in disc 2 no matter how many times i try.

I have seen other people saying you can extract the rars onto the computer however when i tried this every file of every rar just fails and makes an error report a mile long.

Is there anyway to actually install this game ive payed for, or am i better off returning it to the store and getting direct 2 drive.

EA has failed me once again.
