I went and bought battlefield 2 yesterday(yes, I know that I’m a bit late to the
show, but my brother just now convinced me to try out a mod he’s working on)
and upon returning to home, I found out I am unable to install it.
The battlefield 2 copy I bought comes on a dvd, I think the version number is
1.03. Upon inserting the dvd, I am met with the choice of language. After that I
get a menu, where I choose install from the top. Now this is where the problem
I see a loading bar flash, and then a window titled ‘Installshield Wizard
has encountered a problem’ pops up. It tells me to close all applications, empty
temporary folders and check my internet connection is working. The error code is
6005. Naturally I close every possible process through the task manager, empty
the temporary folders in /windows/temp and local settings, and try again. Again
Don’t know if it’s relevant or not, but at the moment of the installation I had
daemon tools installed.
As additional information, I tried and downloaded an ISO of the game off the
internets, thinking I could maybe install that and use my bought game’s cdkey.
Same 6005 error occurs again.
Now, having gone through a lot of threads on this problem, I came upon someone
mentioning that the problem might be caused by safedisc protection. I
now come to you guys to tell me if it’s possible that this is true, and if so, what
can I do about it?
