    So, I was instlalling TESIV: Oblivion, everything went smoothly until the end when the installation window froze up. I tried running Oblivion and a message popped up saying it was missing a file, and that re-installing could fix the problem.

    So, I tried reinstalling Oblivion, but a message pops up:

    >SetupDLL\SetupDLL.cpp (390)
    PAPP:Oblivion
    PVENDOR:Bethesda Softworks (http://www.bethsoft.com)
    PGUID: a lot of numbers
    $11.0.0.28844
    @Windows XP Service Pack 2 (2600)

    I click ok, then it says:

    Setup has experienced an error.

    Please do the folowing:
    -Close any running programs
    -Empty your temporary folder
    -Check your internet connection
    Then try to run the Setup again.
    Error code: -5001


    I did everything it said, I put the CD back in, and tried to uninstall, but the same error popped up.

    Any ideas?

    that's a Direct X runtime error.

    Install the DX 9c Winter 2005 install of DX9.
    download it here:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    Reinstall your video card driver(you might get away with skipping this step, if not you gotta start over)

    Now re-install the game. DO NOT let it install DX9 on your computer for you.
