    Try running the installer as administrator or disable UAC. As the error states, it sounds like a privilege issue.

    Try: sfc /scannow

    Failing that, try a system restore.

    if the service is running but not working properly, then a format/reinstall of windows is your only chance of success.

    Yeah, if a system restore won't fix it, Microsoft Installer is FUBAR and the only way to fix it is to reinstall the OS.

    I too have 7 64-bit and it was a smooth install with no issues whatsoever. Not trying to ruin it for you but I just played it, and I must be honest, I dont think this game is worth it. Its like they took STALKER, Metro 2033, MD2 and mixed it up. Its also not visually impressive. Never below 60 FPS @ MAX. Good luck with your install though.

    that was what i mean, you don't like piracy that why i wrote that too, but it uses a different install and i have no problem with that one.
