I just bought Bioshock 2 from direct2drive, and dl'd the game.
When i try to install the game i get the following error message.
Error Code: -5003 : 0xffffec75
PVENDOR:2K Games (http://www.2KGames.com)
@Windows 7 / Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 0 (7600)
IE Version: 8.0.7600.16385
Anyone out there that can help me out?
Thanks in advance.
Go to My Computer > Local C drive > Program Files > Common Files > Right click on the Installshield Folder > Choose rename > Press end on the keyboard and then type Old and press enter. Now please try and install the game again.
I have tried renaming the installshield folder, even tried to move it to another drive, but i still get the same error message.
The folder is not in the Programfiles folder though, it's in the Programfiles (x86), does that matter ?
Being in (x86) just means you have a 64bit windows.
Have you ever had the game installed or has the installation ever started before without the error message?
The error occurred the first time i tried to install the game, so no previous install, or error free partial install. I also get the amse error message if i try to install on my laptop.
Corrupt file in the download perhaps?
I have downloaded it twice, and wouldn't the zip be corrupted if it was a faulty dl ?
I had to uninstall the dl manager from d2d though, and use firefox to get it to connect.
I really wouldn't know, I haven't a clue how D2D works. I was just throwing ideas out =)

Okay so this is what you need to do:
After you download the game do not unzip using windows. Use an unzip program such as 7-zip or jZip if the file is a .zip file. These are both free. We have tested both 7-zip v4.62 and jZip v18.104.22.168665. After unzipping try to install. This worked for me. Good luck!
Thank you for that advice, it worked like a charm.
Waait a sec - doesn't x86 denote 32 bit, while x86-64 - 64 bit operating systems?
